Bart Balus

Co-opted Trustee

Bart Balus is a qualified member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. He has lived in Kingston with his wife and a son for over 7 years, and in the UK for 17 years after moving from Poland, where he earned his Masters degree at the Cracow University of Economics.

He brings with him over 15 years’ experience in various roles in financial management and business partnering. He has worked for large multinationals in the pharmaceutical industry since 2005. Bart has always been proud to work for companies that put patients’ wellbeing at the centre of their activities. His current employer, Abbvie, has won numerous praises as a sector leader in this respect. His commercial finance experience, in a private sector that thrives on innovation, will add a different perspective and support the development of TKA as it continues to grow.

As a trustee and a member of the Buildings, Finance and Resources committee Bart wants to focus on providing in-depth challenge of the TKA financial performance as well as support the development of robust strategic plans.

Bart is thrilled to have opportunity to contribute to the local community and to be able to put his professional qualifications and experience to a good use locally.

He is an ardent runner – making his rounds in local parks, pavements and further afield. He has always had an interest in history (which would have been his alternative career choice) and utilises the long commute to and from work to enrich his knowledge by listening to audiobooks
