Mr. Boczkowski joined Cimbria Capital in an advisory role to strengthen the firm’s expertise in the areas of commercialization, strategic positioning, expansion strategies, and management of companies operating in the Water Economy. He currently holds the position of Deputy CEO and CCO at Aquaporin in Copenhagen, Denmark, where his responsibilities include overseeing the management, commercial strategy and execution for the company.
Prior to his current role, Mr. Boczkowski was Vice President of Industrial Markets and Key Accounts at SUEZ HQ in France where his responsibilities included the development of new markets, building the industrial marketing team, and identifying top strategic growth initiatives.
