Ewelina Kałużna will lead the Strategic Workplace Advisory team at Skanska commercial development business unit in CEE, combining this role with her position as a Managing Director at Business Link, which is a part of Skanska.

Adapting to the current reality, Skanska office unit in CEE has introduced a strategic advisory service for its clients – Strategic Workplace Advisory. It is another stage of implementation of the strategy to create office space that will meet the future needs of the tenants and, most importantly, offer flexible solutions.

In addition to being an office developer, Skanska will henceforth also provide its clients with advisory services regarding workplace management. Those are going to be adjusted to the new reality through, for instance, creation and implementation of the Flexible Workplace concept, which combines the traditional approach to long-term renting with flexible renting offered by Business Link. The new department will also be responsible for consulting during the process of adapting office buildings to the core & flex offer.

Changes in the Business Link’s management board

“Ewelina’s new role combines her 15+ years of experience in building customer relationships and Business Link’s perspective with the current need to further develop our existing core & flex offer. I am delighted that Ewelina returned to us with a fresh approach to the current situation and market requirements,” says Arkadiusz Rudzki, Executive Vice President Leasing & Sales at Skanska commercial development business unit in CEE.

Ewelina Kałużna assumed the role of Managing Director in Business Link in November 2019. Maciej K. Król replaced her during her absence. Ewelina Kałużna has many years of experience in the real estate sector. During her career, she worked for over a decade for international consulting companies: JLL and Colliers International. For nearly six years she was a Leasing and Asset Director at Skanska office unit in Poland.

“I am taking a position at Business Link – a perfectly functioning organization, superbly adapted to the current market requirements. I am certain that, regardless of the business landscape, the future belongs to the mix of traditional offices and flexible office spaces. Combining the roles at Business Link and Skanska office unit in CEE provides me with a unique opportunity to co-create the optimal strategy for the development of the organization. The changes in the company's management board constitute another essential step towards further integration of Business Link within the Skanska Group structure. The pandemic has firmly confirmed the validity of the existing strategy based on a very close cooperation of both companies. Due to the changing market requirements, flex office spaces, which are a fundamental part of Business Link’s offer, have become particularly important,” says Ewelina Kałużna, Managing Director at Business Link and Head of Strategic Workplace Advisory at Skanska.
