The Polish arm of accounting and consulting giant PwC is moving into a new office in Krakow.

PwC in Poland currently employs over 4,500 accountants, advisors, consultants and support staff across offices in eight cities: in Gdansk, Katowice, Krakow, Lodz, Poznan, Rzeszow, Wroclaw and Warsaw.

In a move that is set to upgrade its presence in Krakow, the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland, the Big Four firm is relocating its office to building E in the High5ive office complex. Leasing a 1,200 square metre space, the new office will provide a more “modern and innovative working environment” to PwC’s employees in the city, said Michał Mastalerz, a partner at the firm and head of the Kraków office. “We are constantly developing the services we offer to our clients spanning the fields of audit, tax, financial advisory and consulting. We value the comfort that we provide to our employees, so we’ve decided to change our offices.”

PwC is currently located in Krakow’s Centrum Biurowe Lubicz. The new High5ive project, which is still under construction, will consist of five buildings with a total floor space of around 70,000 square metres. PwC has tapped local architect NS Moon Studio to design its office.PwC relocates its Krakow office to the High5ive project

Big Four PwC has been active in Poland for over 27 years. Its Krakow office was established three years after it entered the Polish market. The country organisation is led by Adam Krasoń, who has been with the firm since the start of his professional career. Prior to being appointed Managing Partner Poland, Krasoń was Managing Partner of the Assurance division and previously responsible for non-audit Assurance services in the Central Eastern European (CEE) region.

The firm’s other Polish offices are housed in the International Business Centre (Warsaw), Olivia Gate (Gdansk), Katowice Business Point (Katowice), Green Horizon (Lodz), Andersia Business Centre (Poznan), Aquarius Business House (Wrocław) and Skyres (Rzeszow).

Meanwhile in Poland’s consulting industry, two international players recently set up shop in the country as part of their expansion plans in the CEE region. Danish energy consultancy K2 established an office in Gdynia, while financial services consultancy Capco opened an operation in Warsaw, its 2nd in Eastern Europe.
