As a director and senior consultant of MARKETiN, I have led and conducted numerous market research, competitive intelligence and strategy consulting projects, especially for leading global companies from heavy-industry and related business-service sectors, and assisted them in entering Slovak, Czech and other CEE markets. Besides my experience as a business strategy and marketing trainer for various companies, I also acted as a marketing lecturer at the University of Economics in Bratislava. Prior to establishing MARKETiN in 2003, I worked for such companies as Euromonitor International, Bauer Consulting, Accor Services, Ability Development and Satur Travel. I have recieved a masters degree in Trade & Marketing and Ph.D. in Industrial & Cross-Sectoral Enonomics at the University of Economics in Bratislava. I am fluent in English, Slovak and Czech, and able to understand some German, Spanish and Russian.
