Expertise: India

I am an economist with a master degree in Business Management from the University of Economics of Prague/Czech Republic.

My main area of interest is the management & development of newly set up projects both profit and non – profit with the predominant focus on India where I have been living since 2008 on different places.

For my work I use my long experience in megacities like Kolkata, New Delhi, Mumbai or Bangalore where I was representing companies VHS and Linet. Currently I represent company CONTEG India Pvt.Ltd. from the Czech Republic ( ) as the Sales Regional Director. On the contrary I was also working in remote areas in the state Jammu & Kashmir for almost one year where I was the director of the Sun school project for Kargyak village where I also had the opportunity to find out how the Indian educational system has been working.

I gained my project experience in company INBEV where I was a part of team responsible for the transfer of all financial activities from German breweries to Prague Business Shared Service Centre and similarly for company Johnson & Johnson from Brussels to Prague.

I am interested in a phenomenon called „wild goose chase to enter indian market and grow“, psychology of the Indians, the United Nations ( I studied Diploma on United Nations & International understanding at the Institute of United Nations & UNESCO Studies in New Delhi ).

I lived in India where I already have spent 4 years. I spent 6 months in UK, 4 months in Ireland, 4 months in Germany and had a few short stays of one month in Rumania, Nepal and Belgium.

I work in Czech, English and have good working knowledge of German. I also speak Hindi, Polish and Slovak.
