And in TVN, as program promotion director and TVN management board member.
Then, as director general and president of the management board of TVN S.A., he developed the nationwide TV channel and a portfolio of 13 thematic channels,co-creating the strongest television brand in Poland. As the vice-president of the TVN Group management board, he implemented the Group’s Internet and Over-The-Top (TVN Player) strategy. In 2013-2015, he discharged the function of vice-president of the ITI Group, Supervisory Board Member and Chairman of the Strategy and Content Committee of TVN SA. Recently he was involved as co-producer in the production of “Planeta Singli”, one of the most popular Polish feature films of the past years.
Piotr Walter: “Looking at the impressive growth of Grupa Wirtualna Polska, especially over the past two years, I concluded that Jacek Świderski’s proposal is an interesting challenge for a man with multimedia experience like me. What was equally important to me, considering the Supervisory Board member candidacy, was the decision-making and dynamism of the activity of the Group’s Management Board.”
