Michał Paprocki CIO of the year 2017
We are extremely delighted to announce that Michał Paprocki, the president of ING Services Polska, was awarded the title of CIO of The Year 2017! The contest was organized by CIO magazine and consisted of three stages. The first one was the application describing candidates’ accomplishments in their companies. Upon the analysis of all the applications, selected contestants were invited for the second stage - a speech made in front of the jury. This is when the jury selected eight finalists, including Michał Paprocki. Congratulations!
This is a great, exciting transition – from the role of a performer into the one of a creator. Based on the conviction that his employees are masons that are capable of building cathedrals, not anonymous bricklayers - said Szymon Augustyniak, an editor-in-chief of the CEO Magazine for TOP Managers.
My role is not only to be a responsible and firm leader, but first of all to create a team and environment that would facilitate a changeover. I’ve clearly stated that I take full responsibility, while courage is one of the four values my closest team adopted - added Michał.
