The Medici Living Group, the leading co-living provider in Europe and the US, is expanding into Poland. The company has appointed Renata Kusznierska as Director Expansion Poland. Based in Warsaw, she will be spearheading the group’s expansion and roll-out of the Quarters co-living brand in the region. She will identify locations and secure buildings, with an initial focus on Warsaw and Krakow. Other cities are to follow once a foothold has been established.
Renata Kusznierska, moves over to Medici Living from lifestyle, travel and hospitality platform Selina where she most recently held the position of Head of Country, managing all aspects of new operations in Poland. Between 2013 and 2017 she worked at Cushman & Wakefield, most recently as Partner and Head of Retail Agency Poland. Renata advised clients on re-/ development strategies for shopping centres as well as on expansion and long-term retail strategies.
“On our journey to become the WeWork of co-living over the coming years, establishing a foothold in Poland is another key step,” commented Medici Living founder and CEO Gunther Schmidt. “Co-living is becoming more of a topic within the younger Polish generation. We are meeting their demand for flexible and at the same time affordable housing in the large cities with our Quarters concept.”
“I’m really happy to take part in this amazing project, shaping the beginning of the co-living market in Poland. Is a true entrepreneurial challenge, which I like very much. I truly believe that housing should be affordable for young people and treated as a service. The Quarters community is also helping professionals change the country without any stress, which is an added service component for the target group,” said Renata Kusznierska.
