The entire company and activities of all the employees are managed by the company’s founder – Managing Director – Mr Paweł Grabarkiewicz.
He is a native of Poznań, an alumnus of the University of Economics in Poznań in the field of the “Capital Investments and Financial Strategies of Companies” and an active participant of lecturers and trainings for future chartered accountants. Paweł is a leader and trainer in financial analysis (Business Institute in Kalisz, Accountants Association in Poland and Certified Auditors Centre) in the advanced use of Excel for financiers (trainings dedicated to the largest manufacturing and service companies in the Wielkopolska region (e.g. GlaxoSmithKlinePharmaceuticals S.A., Wrigley Poland Sp. z o.o., Kimball Electronics Poland Sp. z o.o., Philips, Polska Sp. z o.o., Volkswagen Poznań Sp. z o.o. , Poczta Polska S.A. and many others) and in the EU funds.
On completion of his studies with honours, Paweł gained his first professional experience at financial and accounting departments of companies like EUROCASH JMB Sp. z o.o. (FMCG), POZMEAT S.A. (meat processing) or BRIDGESTONE-FIRESTONE Sp. z o.o. (tire manufacturing) and finally in 1999 he founded the STRATEGOR company. In the beginning, Paweł worked in his family house basement, where he spent evenings making business plans on a small computer and drove to clients by Fiat 126p. He is moved when he thinks about those times.
He has dealt with funds since the very beginning, i.e. since 2002, acquiring extensive experience in both pre-accession programmes such as SAPARD, PHARE or ISPA and structural programmes in the years 2004-2006 (sectoral operational programmes and the Integrated Operational Programme for Regional Development) and the 2007-2013 Financial Perspective programmes. In particular, he specializes in innovative financing of technological, product and organizational solutions (regional operational programmes and the Operational Programme “Innovative Economy”), as well as in grants for renewable energy sources (Operational Programme “Infrastructure and Environment”, regional operational programmes and contents announced by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and provincial funds).
As the owner of the developing company, presently, Paweł coordinates projects and manages the company, hence he has no time to prepare end-to-end projects. He sometimes misses it. Paweł believes to have a good luck about people and he is proud of his employees and business partners who are co-authors of his company success. As a perfectionist, he does not like the word “impossible” and difficult situations are challenges to him and stimulate him to work harder and harder.
Paweł is passionate about mountains and cartography. The only thing he misses now is a plethora amount of spare time, but he hopes that it will change.
