Mr. Liszkowski is a Chartered Professional Accountant (“CPA”) since November 1998 and member of the British Columbia Institute of CPAs. After spending 13 years in public practice with global audit, tax and advisory services firms in Montréal, New York and Vancouver, Mr. Liszkowski joined Iplayco in November 2009 and was named Chief Financial Officer in January 2010. Mr. Liszkowski started by focusing on Iplayco’s financial turnaround. After three consecutive years of operating losses (2009-2011) costs were cut, sales increased and Iplayco returned to growth and profitability in five of the next six years (2012-2017). Mr. Liszkowski then reshaped the Corporation’s capital structure in November 2014 by completing a non-brokered private placement of CDN$8.8 million with the FAS Group, a Saudi real estate conglomerate. In the following years, Mr. Liszkowski secured millions in trade-financing with a global bank to enable Iplayco to supply some of the largest playgrounds in the industry. Mr. Liszkowski then completed a series of strategic business combinations, starting with the acquisition in June 2016 of IREC Corporation, a contract manufacturer in the Philippines, followed by the brand and intellectual property acquisitions of Play Mart and Play Planet in October 2017 which resulted in the set-up of manufacturing operations in Bulgaria and franchising operations in Italy. Iplayco can now supply and service its global customer base from North America, Europe and Asia.
