Witold Zabinski, managing principal of Corporate Strategies International (CSI) , an international management and finance firm specializing in Central Europe, has been appointed the attachÈ in Atlanta for the Polish Olympic Committee.
In this position, Mr. Zabinski will coordinate the many activities involving the Polish Olympic team and develop a center where Polish visitors to Atlanta may congregate during the 1996 Games.
Mr. Zabinski has been traveling to Poland from Atlanta monthly for the past year and has set up an office in Warsaw. He currently is providing consulting services to Bank 24, an outsourcing bank service company based in Kansas City, Kan., as well as other clients.
Bank 24 recently won a $150,000 grant form the Overseas Private Investment Corp. to conduct a study concerning the potential for ATM services in Central Europe.
CSI was assisted in this project by R. A. Taylor & Associates, another Atlanta firm with experience in financial services. “This project does many things for Poland and other Central European countries,” Mr. Zabinski said. “It will provide insights into the development of banking infrastructure, security and control of money as well as branch banking and the automation of banking services.”
Mr. Zabinski also is working on several other ventures in Poland, and expects that many Poles, in addition to the more than 200 athletes participating in the Olympics, will visit Atlanta during the Games.
He added that he is seeking a facility in the midtown area for a Polish Olympic Village.
