Zdenek BRABEC has worked for over 30 years in the field of digital technology. Most of his time has been dedicated to public telecommunications services.
As a senior expert at one of the world's leading telecommunications operators, he participated in the development of its services in Central Europe. Then as the director of human resources for the Moravian region of the Czech incumbent telecommunications provider, he was part of a team that transformed it from a geographically structured, technically-oriented into a commercially-oriented, line-managed company. After this, he founded a start-up, which restructured the telecommunications services within several of the Czech Republic’s largest companies.
