BIO-NOTE

Marcin Piatkowski Professor at Kozminski University 
and Lead Economist at the World Bank

I am Professor of Economics at Kozminski University in Warsaw, the highest ranked business school in Central and Eastern Europe, and Lead Economist at the World Bank in Washington DC, where I support countries in improving their business environment, enhancing innovation and promoting green development. Previously, I was a Chief Economist and Managing Director of PKO BP, the largest bank in Central and Eastern Europe, economist in the European Department of the IMF and Advisor to IMF's Executive Director. I also served as Advisor to Poland's Deputy Premier and Minister of Finance. Between 1996 and 2000, I worked in corporate banking in Poland and in the US, becoming Senior Manager in Citibank Poland.
I hold a Ph.D. and habilitation in Economics from Kozminski University and M.A. in Finance and Banking summa cum laude from the Warsaw School of Economics. I was a visiting scholar at Harvard University, OECD Development Centre and London Business School.

I wrote a book on "Europe's Growth Champion: Insights from the Economic Rise of Poland", published by Oxford University Press in 2018. It won a national book competition sponsored by the National Bank of Poland for the "Best Book in Economic Education in 2020" and was awarded the prize of the "Best Book in Economics in 2019" by the Polish Academy of Sciences. The book was endorsed by the world’s top economists, reviewed by the Financial Times and translated into Polish and Chinese.
In my free time, I enjoy running, reading books on global history and dancing.
