Podkarpackie Region is a highly innovative region oriented on economic development and social well-being of its citizens. G2A.COM managed by Bartosz Skwarczek, implements numerous initiatives and projects that perfectly fit into the development strategy of our economy and the entire region. I came to know Mr. Skwarczek as an experienced coach, motivator and above all, one of the most committed and ambitious entrepreneurs in our region. It is here in the Podkarpackie Region where he established his company, which was soon after recognized as one of the fastest growing global marketplaces for digital products, and where G2A PAY, an international leader in the payments field, came to life. Mr. Skwarczek;s positive approach to and involvement in the development of the “meetings industry” in the region manifests itself through his close cooperation with the Congress & Exhibition Centre of the Podkarpackie Region, which was given the name G2A Arena.

Bartosz is one of those few persons you meet in life that leave a life-time impression.
He is focused and disciplined yet not self-centred, patient yet efficient, professional yet friendly. Great person and great business person – someone you would gladly invest in the project with and go on holidays together. He achieved a lot, but his focus, competencies, people’s skills and business acumen will take him places. Great friend and valued business partner.
