Chairman of the Council of the UPB Holding

Uldis Pīlēns

A well-recognised architect and entrepreneur. He has proven that a small architect bureau can grow into an internationally important multi-sector group of companies. “Tomorrow will be nothing like today,” are his words. He believes that companies have to adapt their identity to the changing reality. Cooperation between businesses, merging capacity and synergy among horizontal companies and industries, as well as innovation are the means to gain recognition for Latvian companies abroad.
Known for his charisma, intelligence and strategic thinking, being a person who sets high standards for himself and others, he believes that lack of confidence and poor abilities to analyse situation in Latvia and future potential are the weaknesses of our society.
