POLAND JLL appoints new CEO

Human resources
JLL has for the first time in the history of international real estate consultancies in Poland chosen someone from outside the sector to run the company. Mateusz Bonca has been appointed the CEO of JLL in Poland, with his new posting becoming effective in mid-November.

Mateusz Bonca brings diverse expertise from a variety of industry sectors, which will help to drive the company’s continued growth and its digital transformation.

I’m thrilled to take on the role of CEO of Poland and to lead such an inspirational team at a moment when companies across sectors and geographies are re-imagining their future. We are at a crucial point when we need to help businesses make their plans future-proof through sustainable growth and innovative thinking. I am very much looking forward to working with the experienced and dynamic leadership at JLL and I am very grateful for their trust and for the warm welcome.
Mateusz Bonca, the new Poland CEO of JLL

He joins from Polish oil and gas concern Grupa Lotos, where he was president of the management board. Prior to that, he was a director of Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt and financial practice manager at Peppers and Rogers Group Middle East, based in Dubai. He also has consulting and advisory experience from working for McKinsey & Company and Deloitte early in his career.

Mateusz is an exceptional leader with demonstrated international experience across various industry sectors – from banking and finance, to the energy sector. I am convinced that Mateusz, with his expertise from outside the real estate sector, will bring a new fresh perspective to JLL and will be instrumental in creating modern models of long-term client solutions that best respond to the rapidly changing landscape. I’d like to extend a warm welcome to Mateusz.
Sabine Eckhardt, the CEO for Central Europe at JLL
