“Being one of the youngest members of an international management I always have the pleasant feeling that I can already be at that stage of my career at such a young age. Of course, that does not mean less challenges and responsibility at all, but I can still take them easier.”

“Dare to dream big even at a young age!” – I think hard work is essential for achieving success, but it is equally important to be determined and to be able to dream big. I consider myself to be very lucky, because I could get a taste of sales already at a young age. After completing my studies, I soon had the chance to get a glimpse of the life of a salesperson. I learned that it is not so important what you want, but you must rather be able to think with the mind of your partners and to provide them with proper solutions. I also found out, that an excellent salesperson never retreats from failure. Sometimes even the most professional sales representatives must face punches, this is something that comes together with this job. No one can produce a hundred percent sales ratio. Therefore, endurance and the ability to fight is essential for this profession. After my first workplace I got a sales job at a company, which specialized on selling lighting products and their main profile was actually to sell Rábalux products. This was a very important milestone in my career, because I could create a firm basis for my professional knowledge during that period. The expertise and product knowledge I gained helped me to be admitted to the Slovakian subsidiary of Rábalux Group in 2010, where I started to work as a sales manager. The Slovakian organization and the new position meant a lot of challenges, but I could also acquire plenty of valuable experience both in my professional and private life. In 2012 there was a change in the management of the Slovakian subsidiary. I applied for the position of executive director that became vacant and my application was successful. Back then it seemed to be a bold endeavour to work as a managing director, because I was still relatively young. I cannot say it was easy and seamless. It is still very difficult to live up to the expectations of the market, the owners, the team, but this is one of the reasons I love this job, because it is versatile and it is full of excitement.
