- Izabela Jarosz, former head of HR and a member of the executive team at Allegro Group, joins Miinto’s executive team. At the Scandinavian fashion tech she will lead the People & Culture area as Chief People Officer.
- Her primary focus will be on supporting the global development of the company and its IT hub in Poland, increasing the number of employees and building a work environment that creates opportunities for people to implement interesting projects on an international scale, develop their skills and thrive in a multicultural environment.
- Miinto, one of Europe’s largest fashion platforms is growing in strength by foreign expansion, technology development and tapping the market for the top talent. This strategy brings results – Miinto closed 2021 with a record-breaking sales volume.
After six years at Allegro, the most popular shopping platform in Poland and one of the largest in Europe, as well as a several month break to pursue family and personal plans, Izabela Jarosz changes her employer to Miinto. This Scandinavian fashion platform, founded by Konrad Kierklo in Denmark, operates in 14 countries. In Poland, Miinto is present under the Showroom brand acquired in 2019.

Before taking up the position at Miinto, Izabela Jarosz was responsible for developing and implementing Allegro’s people strategy, which was one of the important factors contributing to the company’s dynamic growth. Previously, she was professionally associated with Allianz Group, where she held the position of HR Director for Poland, Southern and Eastern Europe region, as well as a global role at Allianz Partners’ headquarter in Paris. In 2010 she was the winner of the prestigious Top HR Manager competition.
“Since we are growing fast we need the very best talents – both to keep up with the pace of the growth and to help us achieve even more. However, chasing global success is important, but providing personal growth and work satisfaction is equally significant for us. Izabela, joining from the company that is one of the most well-known Polish success stories, provides an insight into the way people-focused culture works in innovative tech-driven companies. We are glad to have her on the board with us as we strive to become an employer that provides excellent opportunities for both professional and personal growth” – says Konrad Kierklo, CEO of Miinto.
The Miinto business model has already grown out of the start-up phase and has proven its effectiveness. This is an amazing opportunity to join the team while heading towards the next stage of the organization’s development on an international scale. But above all I got stolen by the passion, professionalism and diverse talent of Miinto’s team as well as its nimble culture. So the best time for a new beginning is now – says Izabela Jarosz, Chief People Officer of Miinto
