Human resources
Kamil Kowa has become the new CEO of Savills in Poland. He is a member of the management board of the company, and for the past nine years has held the position of head of Corporate Finance and Valuation at Savills. 

Kamil Kowa introduced several tech-based solutions, which significantly improved the property valuation process. His areas of responsibility to date have included PRS, PBSA and senior living projects. Prior to joining Savills in 2015, Kamil spent over ten years at EY running multiple consulting projects across CEE.

Kamil Kowa graduated in finance and banking from the Warsaw School of Economics. He has also completed postgraduate studies in property valuation at Warsaw University of Technology and Sheffield Hallam University. He is a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS).

In August 2023, there was a move at Savills to appoint a new CEO for the Central and Eastern Europe region - Stuart Jordan currently holds this role.

Kamil’s new role will strengthen our presence in CEE and will allow us to work even more closely in the region to increase our cross-border activity and client service.
Stuart Jordan

Savills has a strong reputation in Poland, with 20 years of history and over 200 highly skilled professionals. I look forward to helping our clients grow sustainably, utilizing our global network, market insight and practical innovations.
