IBA Opens New Office in Brno
On March 12, 2008 IBA Group, a global IT service provider headquartered in Prague, opened a new office in Brno, Czech Republic. The move was driven by an increasing demand for IT outsourcing services in Europe and served as a part of the IBA's enrollment in the business development program supported by the Czech Government.
The new IBA`s development center opened on March 12 in Brno, Czech Republic. The opening ceremony was held in the newly built office at 72, Krenova St.
Sergei Levteev, IBA Group President; Valentin Kazan, IBA Group Vice President; and Lubos Brzobohaty, IBA CZ CEO, appeared before guests from IBM and other partner companies, representatives of the press, and IBA Group employees.
The establishment of the new office is a step in the implementation of the program supported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic and promoted by CzechInvest, the Czech Investment and Business Development Agency. The program aims to encourage business development in the high–tech sector of the Czech Republic.

The same year, IBA Group relocated its headquarters to Prague. Furthermore, IBA Group invested in the construction of a new modern office in Brno. Within a program desiged for the dynamic expansion of the Brno development center, IBA CZ is planning to employ more than 150 IT and business professionals. The Brno professionals will develop products and solutions, as well as provide IT services in IBM and other up–to–date technologies.
