First ten years of my proffesional Iife I worked as a planner both in private consulting as well as for the City of Brno as a Deputy Chief Architect heading Urban Development & Renewal Team. There I have gained not only the understanding of how planning impacts the development but also how to proactively use planning policies to initiate and support developments in both greenfields and brownfields. I had also studied relevant planing practices in the UK, Netherlands, USA and Japan.
I joined Bovis P&O Team in Brno in 1994 shortly after this developer started to build Czech Technology Park, which was one of the first industrial developments in Central Europe in cooperation between the City and Technical University. My mission was to promote this development, identify potential customers, work with the construction team in order to accomodate the needs of the tenants and manage the leaase transaction on behalf of the developer. I worked with companies such as Siemens or Silicon Graphics , which became the first tenants of this development.

I have grown and managed the industrial team of Colliers up till 2009 during which period this team became leader in the Czech industrial market having transacted over 3 milion sq m of industrial floor space and land both on behalf of the occupiers as well as the landlords. Most of the customers were international companies such as Prologis, AIG Lincoln, Ctp or Goodman on the landlord side or Bridgestone, VF Europe, Johnson Controls, Schenker, DSV, Gebruder Weiss, DHL, Moduslink and many others on the occupier side .
During this period I have also worked on behalf of the my international occupier clients Bridgestone and Moduslink in the other European markets such as Spain or France as well as various countries of Central Europe.
Shortly after the begining of financial crisis in the early 2009 I became Managing Director of Colliers Czech Republic and took the team through the trubled, loses making period and transformed it to the profitable business.
In the midle of 2011 I have joined newly formed Corporate Solutions team in London to accomodate the needs of my existing as well as new industrial and manufacturing customers across EMEA.
