From its Warsaw office, Visa will manage business in already eight markets in the region
From the information of cashless.pl it seems that as a result of changing Visa's organisational structures in Europe, the importance of the institution's Polish office will increase. This is confirmed by Visa's press office in Poland. "From October 1 this year Jakub Kiwior, Visa's managing director for Central and Eastern Europe region, will also be responsible for the company's operations in Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania and Slovenia. These countries will join the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary, which Jakub Kiwior has been managing so far", the company wrote in response to cashless.pl's question regarding the matter.
According to Visa's press service in Poland, the new enlarged region with a hub in Warsaw will strengthen Visa's presence and cooperation with partners on local markets, ensure continuity of operations and investments in these countries and exchange experiences between Visa's growing teams of employees in offices in Bratislava, Budapest, Bucharest, Ljubljana, Prague, Sofia, Warsaw and Zagreb.

Poland is the biggest market in the region of Central and Eastern Europe for Visa. Therefore, it seems natural that the most important authorities of the organization in this part of the world work here. The importance of the Polish market for Visa can also be proved by the launching of the Innovation Incubator here several years ago (now the Innovation Studio). With the participation of this unit, the world's first tests of a new online payment service - Visa Mobile - have recently begun. More about it in the text entitled "Visa and Nest introduce a new model of card payments on the internet".
