Zdeněk is our CEO who really knows the Global IT Center like the back of his hand. He worked his way up from a junior position where he started right after finishing VUT Brno through managing Network last level teams to a director of the Global IT Center and all of that still at a very young age. His career path is a really good example of how people can grow in GITC.
Zdeněk is also a passionate wine producer who found himself in producing the natural wine, type of wine made with respect to the environment around. He believes anything we do we have to do the way it survives to the future. And as winemaking has to respect the nature to exist in future, IT itself has to develop and modernize to do so as well.
