Biography

When I started looking around for a job after graduating from the University, I was invited for an interview by a recruitment agency and to my surprise, they offered me a job as a recruitment consultant. How lucky was I! From day one, I have been absorbed by the recruitment / staffing industry and I immediately fell in love with my job. Finding the right match between candidates and companies, designing the right candidate attraction strategies and mainly helping people realize their potential and setting them on their way to achieve great things is such a purposeful goal in life.

I was fortunate to spend 13 years in Grafton Recruitment where I learned so much from my colleagues, bosses and owners. I became fascinated by people management and leadership and I realized that it is a life-long and never ending journey to become a leader and industry expert.

In 2014 I met with Josef Kadlec, was impressed by his desire to change the industry stereotypes and we started a new venture together. I dedicated my professional career to recruitment and people management, so I felt strongly that we need to constantly innovate and disrupt the ever changing market place. I became a founding and majority shareholder of GoodCall, Recruitment Academy and Datacruit and I designed a business model where we combine practical Sourcing and Recruitment, Education and Technology.

It is all about people! My vision is to build a company where people enjoy working, are proud of the company purpose and are inspired and motivated daily to innovate and bring value. We believe in the Employee First concept – we put our employees first because we believe that their happiness and satisfaction will automatically turn into happy and satisfied customers.

I am also focused on putting my passions and skills to good use to give back. I started a non-profit organisation called Genixa with a simple goal to transfer and share our knowledge with those who find it difficult to find (any) job.
