Sławoimr Heller

Reward excellent failures. Punish mediocre successes.

Sławomir Heller was born in Warsaw and is a graduate in Civil Engineering at the Warsaw University of Technology and a doctor of technical sciences. He is still associated with the Warsaw University of Technology since graduation. Initially as a scientific and didactic fellow, in later years as the initiator and lecturer of the course “Road Information Systems” and now as a lecturer at the postgraduate studies “Operation and Maintenance of Roads”.

Since 1990 he has moved the main focus of his professional activity to Germany. Working at TÜV Hessen, he developed the basis of the German system for evaluating the technical condition of roads, which has been in use in Germany so far and is also being implemented in other countries, including Poland.

In 2001, Sławomir Heller founded HELLER Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH, a consulting company which he has managed for years and in which, in addition to the owner’s responsibilities, he currently holds the position of senior consultant and is responsible for international connections.

In 2016 Sławomir Heller was nominated German delegate to the World Road Association PIARC and this mandate was extended for a further 4-year term.

In his private life he is married, has two children and one grandchild. He listens to jazz and is a marathon runner. He ran 17 marathons, including all the biggest in the world.
