Olga Lipińska, CFO of Poland

What attracted you to Stralfors?
What attracted me was the fact that Stralfors is so advanced with its technology and continuous business development, which are adapted to meet customer expectations. Being bilingual, I was attracted by the Swedish corporate culture and the opportunity to use my knowledge of the culture of two neighbouring countries in my daily work.

What is your role with Stralfors? What does it entail?
My main task as CFO is to support Stralfors business and to guarantee internal and external accounting. We’ll be working together with the Polish management team to continuously enhance and rationalise our internal cooperation.

What do you hope to achieve at Stralfors?
In the first instance, my aim is to achieve an effective Controlling function that will support strategic development. I hope to achieve that together with my employees. The strength and success of an organisation depends on the people. Even if an organisation is well structured, it’s the people in the organisation who are crucial for its future business.

In your career, what was your most memorable business leadership lesson? 
As a manager, it’s important to give your employees opportunities to develop. People have greater potential than we’re making use of at present. If an employee wants to develop, give him or her a chance. That creates motivation.

What is your world outside of work? 
Being out in the countryside in the fresh air. Hiking, mountains, greenery and lakes all give me new energy.
