Obituary: Nick Pawlak

The following obituary was received from the Saxoncourt Group:

It is with deep regret that we announce the death of Nicodemus (Nick) Pawlak, Executive Director of Saxoncourt Polska, who passed away in hospital on Monday 14th of June after a long illness. Nick was a valuable asset to the Group and we are very grateful for his significant contribution over the years.

Nick, along with Andrew Eddles, was one of the founding members of Target Professional English Consultants in Warsaw. From its inception in 1995 Target quickly grew to become one of the pre-eminent suppliers of in company English language training and tuition in Poland. Saxoncourt purchased a share of Target in 1998, by which time the company was also involved in running schools is the Warsaw area.

Nick was always fiercely proud of his Polish roots and was a keen promoter of Poland and its role in modern Europe. He was a skilled photographer and combined this with his love of music, working for a number of well-known music publications including the New Musical Express in London.

The Saxoncourt Group would like to express our deepest sympathies to Nick's family and friends; he will be sorely missed by everyone who knew and worked with him.
