Sylwia is the newest addition to our BEMO team and we couldn't be happier to have her! Joining us as our Head of People, Sylwia will be a stellar addition to our Leadership Team and will spearhead our aggressive recruiting plan, seeking out the best of the best for BEMO. We are so pleased to have her on the team!

A little background on Sylwia:

Sylwia Chmielewska Headshot-1

Sylwia comes to the U.S. by way of her homeland of Poland. Sylwia and her husband arrived in Washington state for what they thought would be a short stint in Redmond when he was recruited by Microsoft. 17 years later, they are still living in Washington! Having gone to law school in Poland, Sylwia was drawn to the rules and order as well as the help Human Resources provides companies and their employees.

Luckily for us, HR is what brought her to know our CEO, Bruno Lecoq, and what brings them to work together again, all these years later at BEMO! While Washington has clearly created a place in Sylwia's heart, when asked where her favorite place on earth was, she replied "My parents' house". Family is important to Sylwia. Her favorite family tradition? "Eating dinner together every day. We laugh a lot during dinner". says Sylwia about herself, her husband, and their two kiddos, ages 13 and 7. Their bunny, Coco, and their fish, Sparkly, also add to the fun.



When she has time to herself, Sylwia loves to paint. "I am passionate about painting. It helps me relax and be more creative in other aspects of my life."

Sylwia brings that creativity to the kitchen too! She absolutely loves to bake. Look at these amazing Polish Croissants she made!Sylwia Polish Croissants-1Still, right now, her biggest project takes place in the garage: mounting her tow hitch to her car with her husband! Sylwia is certainly a multi-talented individual. When we asked her the question "Who inspires you" she said "People that I can learn from and are enthusiastic about their job, family, etc. They are passionate about what they do. Positive people, because very often they spread the positive energy around them and other people feel good, positive and energetic."

A few more fun facts about Sylwia:
