Marek Brylski is a product line director with Hexagon’s Geospatial division and enjoys being able to help customers drive significant change with the products and projects he has the opportunity to work on.

Brylski recalls one project in particular nearly two decades ago that he’ll never forget.

“There was major flooding in Poland in 1997, and the state initiated various activities to improve the flood protection,” he explained. “My first project for the company was to create the system that would support flood protection activities and ultimately make the region safer. With the system, we were able to predict when the flood waters would come, calculate the areas with the increased flood risk and prepare the evacuation scenarios and other flood risk mitigation measures to ensure everyone’s safety.”

“Twenty years ago, I thought I was smart. But I’ve learned that there are so many smarter people around me,” Brylski said, laughing. “I can learn from them and it makes my job so much more interesting!”

When you can witness that something is really used by people, and they are able to find solutions and outcomes to problems, that’s what gives me a real sense of satisfaction.

All joking aside, Brylski really enjoys the fact that working with the customers and solving real problems is part of every single day.

“You are able to see the impact and drive change,” he said. “When you can witness that something is really used by people, and they are able to find solutions and outcomes to problems, that’s what gives me a real sense of satisfaction.”
