Mariusz Wiśniewski Deputy Mayor City of Poznań
Social engagement, passion and an ability to listen to others – years later these features would lead to this socially engaged student activist becoming the first Deputy Mayor of Poznań. In 2002, he graduated from the Adam Mickiewicz University Poznań with an MA in political science, followed by legal studies completed in 2007 at the same University as well as a post-graduate degree at the Poznań University of Economics and Business. He holds the strong conviction that his everyday duties are mostly supported by his ability to look at the city through the eyes of a regular Poznań resident in the belief that the City of Poznań has its own social, economic and cultural heritage, a soul and spirit, rather than merely as a councillor or an officer elected by the residents between 2006 and 2014.
While performing his duties as the Deputy Mayor, Wiśniewski makes every possible effort to implement his extraordinary and original vision of the city based on his own experience and supplemented by consultations with both residents and entrepreneurs. His involvement in cooperation with investors and support for the operations of the Investor Relations Department demonstrates an awareness of the importance of the economic promotion of the city, which in turn has a positive effect on attracting the new investors and improving the quality of life for the residents.
