Senior Research Analyst | Czech
I joined Colliers Czech Republic in March 2019 as an agent in Office Agency. In several months, I quickly caught-up and was involved in several successful contracts done by the agency. By the end of 2019 I’ve decided to join newly staffed department of research with vision to utilize my curiosity and look for new challenges, as I become responsible for whole new set of tasks.
My first step in commercial real estate carrier was in 2013 with PSN, a local developer active in residential, retail, office and warehouse sectors. I was able to acquire much experience in all these fields and in time accepted a position of letting manager of Kotva Department store.
Just before joining Colliers, I worked for Tesco Stores as a Mall Leasing Manager. My responsibility was to secure new leases for five biggest shopping centres which Tesco owned by that time in Prague, Pilsen, Ostrava, Opava and Karlovy Vary.
Prior of my career in commercial real estate, I worked in several construction companies as a designer in both civil and transport construction.
