Tomasz Sokolowski, Vice President of IRC Poland (HRK Office), has been appointed the new EMEA Regional Leader of IRC Global Executive Search Partners. Tomasz takes over this role after Gaye Özcan, Managing Partner of IRC Turkey and EMEA Regional Leader since 2014.

The IRC members from the EMEA region recently met in Amsterdam, a successful business hub and a leading centre of trade, to discuss leadership transformation in a digital, disruptive age and share best practices with fellow members.

Tomasz Sokolowski graduated from Foreign Trade at the Warsaw School of Economics with financial specialisation. He completed a Business Administration course organised by Minnesota University and Warsaw School of Economics. He has over twenty years’ experience in the personnel consulting industry. As the Vice-President at HRK he is responsible for competence diagnosis projects. He cocreates the methodology and participates in personal audit, Assessment and Development Center projects, mergers & acquisitions and employment restructuring projects.

“It is great honour and satisfaction to have been chosen the EMEA Leader. My predecessor Gaye Ozcan is an unmatched model to follow as she has successfully provided her inspiration and leadership to our region throughout the last three years. The reverse mentoring concept that I got familiar with during the workshop that she organized, I later shared with my clients. I will do my best to bring value to the organisation through making sure every voice is heard in IRC EMEA, and every creative idea is carefully considered. I will ensure that we continue to flourish in the EMEA region through fostering friendship and collaboration between all our consultants as well as bringing new ideas to the table that will allow IRC keep pace with the changing environment of the global economy”, Tomasz Sokolowski commented.

“On behalf of all members we congratulate Tomasz on his appointment as Regional Leader. I know I speak for all EMEA members and the broader IRC community in saying that we very much look forward to benefiting from Tomasz’ enthusiasm, ideas and leadership. The role of Regional Leader is one of the most critical in our alliance and we thank Tomasz for his willingness to take on the task”, added Rohan Carr, President of the IRC Executive Board.
