The president of the Polish central bank was among those killed in Saturday’s plane crash, which also killed the country’s President and religious and military elites. Slawomir Skrzypek will be replaced by the bank’s deputy, Piotr Wiesiolek. The 10-member monetary policy council will also be managed by Mr Wiesiolek. Although his views are not well known, no significant change is expected at the bank. Forty-six-year old Mr Wiesiolek is a former banker specialising in asset management, who also has international central banking experience. Click on his photo for his official biography.
