IBA Group Opens Branch in Slovakia
Prague, 5 May 2015 — IBA Group, an alliance of IT companies with more than 2,500 people is expanding its activities to the Slovak market. Aleš Hojka, IBA CZ director, is appointed as Managing Director of IBA Slovakia.
“Expansion into Slovakia is part of the long–term plan of IBA Group. We began taking the legal steps required to set up IBA Slovakia in Bratislava and got it up and running at the end of 2014. We did this on behalf of IBA CZ with the authorization of the parent company. IBA Slovakia became fully functional as of May 1, 2015,” says Aleš Hojka, General Director of IBA CZ and Managing Director of IBA Slovakia.
“Slovakia is not a new market for IBA Group, as we already have several important clients there, including O2 SK, Allianz SK, and Slovak Telecom. Our aim is to be even closer to our valued customers. We opened an office, hired a local representative to take care of commercial issues, and formed a team of IT experts. We need to have a deeper insight into the local environment and understand the needs of the market,” continues Valentin Kazan, Member of the IBA Group Board.
IBA Group wants to use its new branch to bring to the Slovak market the experience and technical know–how of all its centers of excellence. These mainly involve portal, document management, and mobility solutions.
