It is with great pain to announce that Piotr Soyka has died.
For many years he was the chairman of Remontowa Shiprepair Yard, the founder, chairman, co-owner and author of the global success of REMONTOWA HOLDING Capital Group, the largest Polish shipbuilding group and one of the biggest in Europe.
He was and will always be for all of us - employees and associates - the greatest authority and guiding light, a man who committed his entire life to developing the companies of our Group and the people who work in them. He opened the shipyard to the world.
Sharing his knowledge, wisdom and great experience, he was always with us, in good and bad moments, celebrating successes together and raising our spirits when the failures happened.
He inspired, advised, motivated, supported and encouraged us to defy the odds and to move on, achieving what seems unattainable and changing the reality around, which he himself was the best example of. For us he was and will always be a signpost, a mentor and a Friend. It was an honour to work with him.
His death is a huge blow to us. We will miss him very much, but the memory of him will remain with us forever...
And we continue to pursue his vision, working with Shipowners around the world, just as he taught us.
