Two key members of the team at translation services firm PAB Languages are celebrating a professional milestone.
Chief Finance Officer Monika Przybyszewska and Business Development Manager Lelde Plesa are both marking ten years with PAB this summer.
Monika is responsible for all the financial global operations, strategic planning and presentation of reports to support the current and future growth of PAB Languages.
While Lelde is responsible for elevating the PAB Languages brand and identifying how the company can add value and benefit society.
Iwona Lebiedowicz CEO at PAB Group said: “Having employees’ dedication in the company for ten years and more is a true milestone. A big success like this is the result of shared principles, effective communication, trust, respect, and constant teamwork. I would like to thank Lelde and Monika who have helped to make PAB Group what it is today.”
PAB Languages, which has UK offices in Nottingham, Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Yorkshire and Essex, offers translation, interpreting and localisation services in over 200 languages.
In charge of day-to-day tasks in the financial department, Monika oversees every aspect of PAB’s financial life. This involves developing budgets, monitoring transactions and preparing financial reports.
Monika holds a master’s degree in International Trade from the University Paris XII in France and a postgraduate diploma in Translation from the Jagiellonian University in Cracow in Poland. She speaks fluent French, Polish and English. Monika enjoys spending family weekends with her husband and three children on regular outdoor activity adventures.
Monika said: “I can’t believe it’s already been ten years since I joined PAB. I am proud and honoured to be part of this great team! It has been an amazing journey. I hope for many more successful years!”
Lelde helps grow the business by establishing relationships, building trust and promoting PAB’s services to the right people across the local and national business community.

She speaks fluent Latvian, Polish and English.
Lelde lives in Lincolnshire with her husband, two children, two cats, one dog and more than 50 fish.
She said: “They say: “Time flies when you are having fun.” Of course, not all is fun, hard work and dedication come first. These past ten years have given me some of my best memories and experiences. I am glad to be a part of PAB’s group.
“Thank you for all the help, support, mentoring and opportunities to develop myself over the past ten years.”
