Lenka Žlebková was Appointed as the CEO of the Prague Congress Centre
As of March 2020, Lenka Žlebková was appointed as the CEO of the Prague Congress Centre (PCC). She aims to place PCC among the most important European congress centres. In addition, she will also focus on development of the entire area, including public space around PCC and the planned construction of the New Exhibition Hall should help achieving it.
Lenka Žlebková has already fought intensively for this construction to happen in her previous position of the Sales and Marketing Director of PCC. „One of my priorities will be to change the corporate culture because I believe that the more satisfied employees are, the more satisfied clients we have” says Lenka Žlebková starting in her new position.
„The new director succeeded in the selection process from more than 100 candidates. She is a professional with many years of experience in the field and she has a strategic approach. In addition, as a Sales and Marketing Director she managed to achieve excellent business results” says Pavel Vyhnánek, Shareholder Deputy and Deputy of Mayor of Prague. According to him, the time has come for the Prague Congress Centre to contribute to change the structure of foreign visitors coming to Prague. „If more people come to Prague for congresses, the city centre will focus on them, offering more sophisticated services than the beer tours” he adds.
Lenka Žlebková will replace Pavel Habarta, a member of the Board of Directors temporarily assigned to manage the company since April last year. His results are appreciated by management. Pavel Habarta will be still involved in the PCC as member of the Board of Directors.
