How I started?
After graduating from high school and commercial training in Hamburg, I started my working life straight away. My focus was on sales and marketing and since then made my professional career in various companies. In my last job as an export manager in a multinational Japanese electronics company, I was lucky enough to experience the upheaval in Eastern European countries firsthand. After which I decided to move into the Czech Republic.
In mid-life, I became self-employed. I achieved a radical change, quitting a well-paying job without any distress. Letting my dream of independence come true. Radical insofar as moving to the Czech Republic. To a country where I didn’t know the language and the people. I had suddenly found myself in a society which had to find itself after years of oppression by communism. After great difficulties initially, I managed to build a successful company with more than 60 employees in the field of AV media technology.
I am Martin, I was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1964. My parents emigrated to Sweden 1969 where I grew up. In 2005 I moved to US where I lived for seven years and after that I spent three years in The Netherlands. Since 2014 I’m now living in the Czech Republic.
Challenges, passion and energy are important for my work and I like when there are changes needed and challenges to overcome.
