Malgosia Bartosik - Deputy CEO, WindEurope
Born in Poland in 1978, Malgosia Bartosik moved to Brussels and started working at WindEurope (former EWEA) in 2004, working her way up from intern to deputy CEO. Across the decade she spent at WindEurope, she emerged as the true backbone of WindEurope of which she is now the longest serving employee. She is the brain behind WindEurope’s high-profile industry events, marketing and communications campaigns and membership services and growth.
In addition, Bartosik has been an essential link between WindEurope’s policy department and the rest of the departments, thereby enabling the integration of the trade body’s various activities in one coherent and concerted effort. She is directly responsible for all revenue-generating activities, ensuring that WindEurope remains a financially strong association able to deliver its all-important lobbying mandate for the benefit of its members and the international wind industry as a whole. Bartosik has attracted industry praise for her remarkable ability to create synergies and encourage creative collaboration among different industry players coming from media, policy and business, as well as other national and regional trade bodies.
Alongside former leaders, she turned WindEurope into a 600 strong member base, and saw the leading EU wind energy trade association growing from a team of 10, to a team of more than 50 employees, making it the world's largest and most powerful wind energy network. Bartosik is a regular speaker at various industry meeting events, advising events’ planners and marketers on creative marketing and communication strategies. Last year, Recharge magazine announced Bartosik as one of the 40 under 40, in acknowledgement of her key contribution in driving WindEurope’s successful operations, and a celebration of the decade of outstanding commitment to the development of the wind industry in Europe.
