According to Mr. Tamborski in a recent statement on the appointment, “I thank CEO Adam Maciejewski and the other Members of the WSE Management Board for their contribution. It was a good and strong term of office of the Management Board. Their hard work over that time clearly contributed to the development of the exchange and the entire capital market. I am aware of the challenges that the new Management Board and I will have to face in the nearest future. Therefore, I accept the position with a sense of great responsibility and I want to thank everyone for the trust they have in me. Continued strengthening of the position of Warsaw Stock Exchange and building of a regional capital hub will be my priorities in the coming years. This will only be possible with the co-operation of all institutions of the Polish capital market.”

Mr. Tamborski previously served as Under-Secretary of State at Poland’s Ministry of Treasury since 2012, following a successful bid to coordinate and privatize the country’s capital markets. He also has worked in senior executive roles at Unicredit Group and Wielkopolski Bank Kredytowy S.A.
