Cushman & Wakefield has appointed Krzysztof Misiak as Head of Poland to succeed Charles Taylor who leaves the firm after 30 years.


Krzysztof Misiak, Head of the firm’s Office Agency in Poland, has worked for Cushman & Wakefield for 13 years. He was appointed Head of Regional Cities in the Office Agency team in 2012 and successfully launched the Cushman & Wakefield brand in Poland’s core regional markets. In 2018, he became Head of Office Agency in Poland. One of the best-known professionals in the Polish commercial real estate market, he has acted on close to 300 leases for more than 500,000 sqm.

Jonathan Hallett, Cushman & Wakefield’s Head of Central & Eastern Europe, said: “Krzysztof is a market-leading professional and an experienced and highly-respected leader. He will be responsible for building on our existing success and ensuring we continue delivering the best service and strategies to support our clients in a rapidly changing business environment. I look forward to working closely with him in his new role.”

As Head of Cushman & Wakefield Poland, Misiak will be responsible for the management of all business lines in Poland, while continuing to directly lead the firm’s Office Agency, with a focus on strengthening Cushman & Wakefield’s position in the Polish commercial real estate market.

Krzysztof Misiak, Head of Poland, said: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to drive forward our business in Poland, leveraging our global network and the skill base of our local team to deliver the best insight and sophisticated commercial real estate solutions to add maximum value for our clients.”

Misiak succeeds Taylor who managed the Polish office of Cushman & Wakefield from 2013. Prior to his move to Poland, Taylor was based in the UK and also acted as Head of Cushman & Wakefield Hungary.

Hallett added: “I would like to thank Charles for the significant contribution he made to Cushman & Wakefield. Having led our Polish business through the merger of Cushman & Wakefield and DTZ five years ago, he has played a key role in its evolution into today’s successful firm.”
