The next candidate that charmed us is Piotr Chruscielewski, a Polish entrepreneur whose humor translates well in English and French, too.
Before Piotr even turned 20, he built the first internet cafe software in Poland and sold it to 10 cafes, and won an IT competition that had Microsoft invite him over to their HQ.
He also owned a Japanese cuisine/sushi restaurant in his hometown for 3 years and, at one point, won a cooking competition serving 1200 pieces of salmon teriyaki over the span of two days. Here at PG, we’re already preparing our appetite for a glorious sashimi party that we expect Piotr to host at some point in October – right?!
A few years ago, Piotr decided to stop focusing strictly on IT and learn more about general management. He accumulated experience in corporate roles like CIO, board member and CFO for almost a decade which, coupled with his IT expertise and unique insight, basically make him a business administration ninja.
He can dive 30 meters/100 ft deep with no equipment and he will, naturally, bid to become the Chief Diving Officer. Watch out, dolphins!
