PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

As Head of the Management Board Support Office at Orlen PetroTank, Mr Podsiadło was responsible for administering its business, developing its customer base, operation of its strategic feedstock logistics and procurement system, and transformation of its sales channels and system of product distribution to end customer. Prevailing market trends required the company to reorganise its sales and settlement model, in particular in view of the rapid growth in the value chain driven by the development of a retail sales network including company-owned, partner and franchise outlets as well as existing assets acquired from the competition.

As Chief Accountant at WITOSPOL Janusz Podsiadło participated in the development of a document workflow system, account receivable and payable management system, inventory management system, and system for financial reporting on a monthly basis.

Mr Podsiadło served as Chief Financial Officer at LEIER during both boom and crisis periods, which required application of very different management tools. The restructuring of the company's core operating functions at a time of declining financial results required highly disciplined finance management and operational planning and budgeting to enable the monitoring and control of performance by heads of all departments and functions.

Working as a tax auditor, Mr Podsiadło had the opportunity to learn the inner workings of the system applied by tax authorities to assess business organisations’ compliance with tax requirements and other laws and regulations, including as construed by tax audit offices.

Mr Podsiadło was able to draw on that experience to contribute, as member of the Management Board, Chief Financial Officer, of PetroTank, a subsidiary of PKN Orlen S.A., to the development of an information flow analysis system, in particular with respect to the flow of financial information.
