We are pleased to announce that on March 15, 2021, Mr. Tomasz Szypuła – President of Ptak Warsaw Expo became the President of the National Federation of Entrepreneurs, gaining the support of all associations of Polish merchants and entrepreneurs and associated federations.

The decision made by thousands of entrepreneurs to elect Tomasz Szypuła to the position of President of the Federation was motivated by his involvement in the affairs of Polish companies as a member of the Supervisory Board of Holding Ptak, President of the Management Board of Ptak Warsaw Expo and President of the Management Board of the Association of Polish Clothing Producers, as well as excellent knowledge of the SME sector.

We believe that the vocation of President Tomasz Szypuła to the new position will bring real help to the companies that have suffered the most as a result of the pandemic and related restrictions, and that the activities of the Federation will have a significant impact on the participation of the Polish SME sector in consultations regarding legal projects involving the interests of Polish entrepreneurs, implemented by state and local authorities.

Numerous contacts, both with Polish and foreign entrepreneurs, institutions, as well as the experience gained during many years of managing the largest fair and congress center in Poland will certainly contribute to the development of the Federation’s activities.

The Polish Federation of Entrepreneurs has existed since 2006 and represents the interests of Polish companies that operate in the field of production and distribution of goods from various industries and services in Poland and other European Union countries. The main goals of the Federation bringing together over 15,000 companies from various industries and nearly 500,000 employees are focused on representing the interests of Polish entrepreneurs before state and local government authorities, administration and other business organizations, disclosing and eliminating manifestations of unfair market competition, as well as legal assistance, organizational support and promotion, in particular, of companies from the SME sector.

Tomasz Szypuła, taking up a new position, thanked Jerzy Romański, previous President of the National Federation of Entrepreneurs, for his commitment and contribution to the functioning of the Federation. Mr. Jerzy Romański will continue to actively support and participate in the activities of the Federation, acting as the vice-president.
