We recently announced that MSLGROUP has acquired Ciszewski Public Relations, Poland’s largest PR agency. This was an announcement dear to my heart: I am a first generation Polish American, born and raised in New Britain, Conn, who moved to Chicago to further expand my young career in public relations. Fortunately enough for me, both areas have a very large and warm Polish community. In fact, Chicago has the second largest Polish population in the world, second only to Warsaw.
MSL Chicago welcomes CEO Jerzy Ciszewski and COO Sebastian Hejnowski and their team to the MSL family. Ciszewski and Henjnowski are clearly experienced experts in strategic consulting, management, and corporate communications.
With the acquisition of Ciszewski, MSLGROUP is now the largest agency network in Poland, a market at the heart of dynamic Central and Eastern Europe. And, it is no surprise that Ciszewski PR has grown significantly over the last several years. Poland joined the European Union in 2004 and its economy is booming. The nation constitutes half of new Europe’s economic potential reflected by the Gross National Product. They are a country that has best dealt with the economic crises. I encourage you to view this animated film about how a country which 20 years ago underwent a radical transformation of economic system became a steadily developing member of an exclusive economic club, the European Union.
It is thrilling to hear about the expansion and MSLGROUP’s continued boundless opportunities in global initiatives and marketing. Many of our clients in Chicago are expanding their marketing activities overseas to include emerging markets in Europe, Asia and Latin America. I’m quite excited.
