RAILTARGET presents you with an exclusive interview with Katarzyna Halwa, who joined Siemens Poland as CFO and a member of the company's Management Board at the beginning of the year. Katarzyna reminisced about the brightest achievements of her 20-year-long career at Siemens, as well as the importance of the experience she got to gain while working abroad.

Your career in Siemens has over 20 years of history. What are the most memorable achievements you can remember throughout this period? 

I joined Siemens in 2000, so already a while ago. During this time, I have gained extensive experience with structure, processes and different challenges holding managerial positions in the financial and strategic fields of Siemens' Polish entities and our companies in Germany and the United Kingdom. 

In 2016 I returned to Poland to work on the development of Siemens Mobility business in Poland. Throughout these few years, we have grown significantly in multi-system locomotives, customer service, and as the supplier of different railway components in our local market. At the beginning of 2023, I started another chapter of my career, combing my actual role as CFO of Siemens Mobility Sp. z o.o. with being CFO of Siemens Sp. z. o.o. – the most prominent Siemens entity in the Polish market. 

Siemens offers a very unique opportunity to spend life with the company and, at the same time, work in completely different divisions, companies, and countries. Every role gave me very valuable memories, but a general comment – every role was an “eye-opener” in terms of what Siemens can offer to our customers.

You've held managerial positions in strategic and financial segments in Poland, Germany, and Great Britain. How different was it from working in Poland? Did you get any experience there that you could later apply to the Polish market, too?

The most important message I learned while working abroad is that we should never underestimate what we can learn from others. I mean, of course, gaining knowledge, but also a cultural experience, working with very diverse teams – that really prepared me to tackle almost all challenges any project could bring. Also, the extensive network of colleagues which I built during these years at Siemens gives me the opportunity to address any issue I may have.
