Tomasz Leśko to head Kochański & Partners’ Krakow office


Krakow has long played the role of a technology hub and a central point where Polish and European innovation is born and developed. Silesia is at the heart of the energy and industrial transformation that will drive the Polish and Central European economies for years to come.

When I joined Kochański & Partners less than three years ago, I felt like I was stepping into a raging river.
