Andrzej Czernecki was one of Poland’s leading businessmen. His success would be very hard to replicate in Poland - he took over nearly half of the world’s market in a very focused field, producing precise equipment used for basic medical analyses.
What's more, he developed, patented and produced the equipment by himself, operating within a large global competition; no one has ever accomplished that in Poland.
Andrzej Czernecki graduated from the Physics Department at the University of Warsaw. As a member of the academic faculty, he obtained a scholarship in Austria where he was singled out by the head of the department of Beckman Instruments, an American company manufacturing laboratory equipment. He returned to Poland with an offer to look into the potential of the Polish market. As a company representative, he was soon looking after the Polish and Soviet markets.
