Kompania Piwowarska

Kompania Piwowarska operates three breweries with rich heritage: Tyskie Browary Książęce (established in 1629), the Dojlidy Brewery in Bialystok (1768) and Lech Browary Wielkopolski in Poznan (1895). These breweries provide Polish people with their favourite beers, including Żubr, Tyskie, Lech, Dębowe, Redd’s and the Książęce specialty collection. Our proven beer recipes, natural ingredients, pristinely clean breweries and, above all, superbly skilled and experienced brewers, allow us to brew beers that are highly valued in Poland and abroad.

As a socially responsible company, we take good care of people and our environment. Executing the Bet on Beer strategy, we promote moderate and responsible consumption of alcohol, train salespeople, save water and energy, support the development of our employees and business partners and engage in voluntary work. We are proud to sponsor many local teams. We have been consistently earning a spot among Poland’s top employers.

Over 10 year ago, we opened our doors to people who would like to explore our breweries, so they can see with their own eyes how we brew beer. Brewery tours can be booked at: www.zwiedzbrowar.pl (Tychy).

Our history

Kompania Piwowarska was established on May 4, 1999 as a result of the merger o Tyskie Browary Książęce and Lech Browary Wielkopolski. That’s when one of the biggest and most hi-tech brewing companies in Poland was born.

Four years later, on February 4, 2003, Kompania Piwowarska SA, with Euro Agro Centrum SA and South African Breweries Ltd as the main stakeholders, acquired a majority interest in the Dojlidy Brewery, which ultimately joined the group of KP’s breweries on April 30. Later that year, in July, Poland’s first beer trip centre Świat Lecha was opened and it still operates to this day, just under another name. Everyone can book a brewery tour at www.zwiedzaniebrowaru.pl.

One year later, on November 22, 2004, another Kompania Piwowarska brewery opened its doors to visitors. That’s when Tyskie Browarium was created, which at that time was called Tyskie Muzeum Piwowarstwa. Nowadays, brewery tours can be booked via www.zwiedzbrowar.pl.

Six years later, on May 14, 2009, SABMiller acquired 100% of Kompania Piwowarska’s shares.

In 2017, Kompania Piwowarska underwent another ownership change. Now, it’s a part of Japan’s Asahi Group.

Kompania's Management Board

  • Igor Tikhonov, President of the Management Board

    The President of Kompania Piwowarska since October 2018. His whole professional life has been revolving around the FMCG sector. He kick-started his career in the brewing industry in 2001 at SABMiller, first acting as Sales Manager and later on as Strategic Development Manager in Russia. 2008 marked his appointment as Managing Director of the subsidiary in Ukraine, while four years later he became Managing Director in Slovakia.

    In 2014, Igor Tikhonov took the lead at Romania’s Ursus Breweries, which under his leadership quickly became number one on the Romanian beer market. Over the last two years, he has also been responsible for the development of the company on the Hungarian market, where he made his name as an experienced strategist. Thanks to his management skills, the company returned to a steady growth path and began to generate record-breaking revenue.

    Igor Tikhonov knows the importance of teamwork. He compares business successes to sporting achievements – both require intense efforts of a whole team, while every accomplishment provides a boost of energy and motivation to keep moving forward. Moments spent over a beer are especially valuable for him, as he considers them the best opportunity to bring back memories, cultivate traditions and spend time with friends.

  • Michał Mrowiec, Vice President of Sales

    Since January 2016 employed at Kompania Piwowarska as the Vice President of Sales. Before he joined the brewing industry, he had held the position of Commercial Director at Coca Cola HBC Poland. Previously, he had spent many years gaining experience at a number of senior positions at Unilever, including work in the Customer Development department for Poland and other Baltic countries and at the position of Customer Relationship Manager. Michał has a proven history of achieving extremely difficult company objectives, building route to market strategies, developing customer strategies and customer relations, leading and coaching effective sales teams, negotiating and change management.

    He completed his Business Administration & Marketing studies at the Academy of Economics in Katowice. He has a great passion for running. In his spare time he drinks Pilsner Urquell.

  • Marcin Nikiel, Vice President of Finance

    He has been associated with Kompania Piwowarska since 2010. At first he served as Commercial Finance Director, and since November 2016 he has been acting as Vice President of Finance. Marcin has extensive experience in the field of financial management within the FMCG sector. Prior to joining KP, he had spent 13 years holding various positions within the structure of the Procter & Gamble concern both in Poland and the European headquarters of the company.

    He graduated from the Oskar Lange Academy of Economics in Wroclaw with majors in Management and Computer Science, and then received his PhD degree from the Warsaw School of Economics (Collegium of Business Administration). He also holds an ACMA title. He is a keen sailor, and his favourite beer is Książęce Czerwony Lager.

  • Jacek Kopiejewski, Vice President of Technical Operations

    Working for Kompania Piwowarska since 1984. Before he joined the Poznan brewery, he had been working at the Poznan Factory of Harvesting Machinery (1981-1984): first as a constructor of agricultural machines and later as quality control manager. He’s held a number of positions at the Poznan brewery, from deputy technical manager, to project manager and investment director. As a member of the Management Board of Lech Browary Wielkopolski, he was in charge of production and technical development. He has been responsible for the same functions as Vice President at Kompania Piwowarska since 1999.

  • Wojciech Moliński, Vice President of Human Resources

    Working for Kompania Piwowarska since 2008. As Vice President of Human Resources, he is in charge of employee relations at Kompania Piwowarska, making KP a consistently better and friendlier workplace. Before he joined Kompania Piwowarska, he had been a member of the management board at Volkswagen Poznan, responsible for human resources, and worked for Philips Lighting Poland and Wavin Metalplast-Buk.

    He is a psychologist by education, a graduate of the Catholic University of Lublin. As far as beer is concerned, he always favours the taste of Książęce Ciemne Łagodne.

  • Iwona Doktorowicz-Dudek, Vice President of Marketing

    Working for Kompania Piwowarska since July 2014. She has a vast experience in the food industry. She has worked for the Danone Group for a whole decade, successfully promoting the most popular brands, such as Activia, Actimel, Danonki, Danio, Danone yoghurt, Fantasia and Gratka. Because she likes challenges and changes, she decided to leave the biscuit and dairy drink business for the breweries. She believes that success, both in the beer and any other industry, depends on one’s individual talents, business experience, passion and teamwork skills, and definitely not gender

    She majored in English at the University of Silesia and completed MBA studies at the University of Warsaw and the University of Illinois. As a native Silesian, she favours Tyskie, which she supported even when it was still a local brand in the south of Poland.
