In my opinion Robert have an ability as professional and as well as competent manager. His determination, professionalism and a path of work that finally result in achieving goals which contributed to huge success of Commercial Union Polska Life and partly Pension Companies are the assets which are most important to have by the top manager.

Konrad Kluska Dyrektor Sprzedaży w AVIVA Polska
I have worked with Robert since 1997. Robert is a strong leader very focused on delivering business objectives and puts emphasis on motivation, development and empowerment of people working with him. He has always defined clear and concise targets and was able to create enough engagement of each team member to deliver these targets. Apart from interpersonal skills Robert can create winning market strategies and has lots of determination to execute them. His career, from Branch Manager to Sales Director and Board Member was a proven example and real inspiration for many Commercial Union (Aviva) employees and insurance agents. His international experience and having done a wide range of insurance market surveys makes him an unique specialist on Polish and European insurance market.

I have met Robert in my early days of Commercial Union (now Aviva) career in 1994, when he was an owner and manager of one of the largest and most dynamic CU agencies in Gdańsk. We have conducted several projects together, including winning large group insurance accounts. Even after all those years Robert remains as one of the best managers in the insurance business I came across. He always was able to think and act startegically without losing practical, day-to-day perspective. He is a people's man, yet demanding and straight, problems-solver with high levels of energy that wins people's mind and hearts. I am aware of his excellent job in his CU/Aviva VP Sales position, that le CU become a No 1 pension fund in the country. We remained in touch also during his Russian period and I am sure that he has learned a lot of new things, so now he can only add more value to any sales-driven organisation.

I witnessed Robert in numerous interactions with people at various levels in the organization and I always admired his competence and skills in handling most difficult and complex situations. With his industry experience and talent for motivating his team I need to say that working for Robert was both a challenge (in a positive sense) and a true pleasure.

He is a SALES person one hundred percent, and also energized and motivated people to do and love their jobs. With Robert we felt a continuous increase of sales and expansion in the regions. I really do believe that Robert is one of the best sales and marketing professionals in the Life Insurance field. I would definitely recommend him to any employer in insurance, banking or other sector.

Dmitry Rudakov – Senior training consultant at Richardson Europe
I have a luck to work with Robert in Rossgosstrakh Russia. I've been responsible for Life Insurance training system, Robert was the Head of sales development team. What could I say... Robert is the most professional manager and salesman I've ever seen. He has not only outstanding personal experience, but also wisdom and good nature - extremely rare combination for senior manager, especially in Russia (Robert is a good friend for all staff - from managers to the very young agents. If I ever will receive an invitation to work with Robert again - I'll accept it withous saying, no matter what business will it be.

Elena Kozlyuk – Regional Director Rosgosstrakh Life
Robert helped me put a business from zero. He's a good coach and leader. He always succeeds and has taught me that. It is a pleasure to work with such a professional.

Jacek Skwierczyński – CRO w Open Life
I had the pleasure to work together with Robert in Russian Standard insurance Moscow. His knowledge of how sales force for life insurance should be organized and managed was astonishing. From his experience he immediately pointed to possible mistakes in the way the company wanted to build it's tied agent sales structure. To my knowledge this was the first and only professionally organized sales force in Russia and Ukraine. His good commandment of Russian made it easy for him to communicate with the local people. If any one ever choses to enter the life insurance market in Russia - he should first use his services.
