I have been working in the pharmaceutical sector in the Central and Eastern Europe region for over 25 years. During this time, I have created several leading sales and marketing teams in terms of efficiency and effectiveness. I have also trained many managers who today hold top positions in leading pharmaceutical companies in Poland and CEE.

I have spent half of my career working with Western pharmaceutical companies. I have developed their sales departments, led marketing projects and opened new market segments. I spent the last 13 years working for Polpharma Group - Poland's largest pharmaceutical company. It is also one of the leading companies in Central and Eastern Europe.

For 11 years, I have been serving as a member of the boards of directors, president of group companies, vice president of the group for commercial affairs, and member of the supervisory boards of subsidiaries in Eastern and Southern Europe.Working in management and supervisory boards of a privately-owned capital group allowed me to gain knowledge that is relevant to the world of Polish companies. The personal responsibility during my work helped me develop the ability to calculate the risk while looking for new development opportunities. It also resulted in the ability to create a strategy that makes the owners' vision come true. 

For the past two years, I have been acting as an advisor to business owners and boards of directors, supporting executives in gaining the ability to continuously transform business operations in a rapidly changing and uncertain environment.

I am a member of the Council of the University of Lodz in the 2021-2024 term. For many years I have been active as a mentor and a coach in many pro bono projects, including the Businesswomen Leaders Foundation. I am a graduate of the Pomeranian Medical University (general practitioner); Warsaw University of Business at the Polish Academy of Sciences (MBA), INSEAD (Advanced Management Programme)
