I joined ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab from ŠKODA AUTO, where I worked in various positions for several years. I had the opportunity to deepen my marketing knowledge, and, thanks to Customer Experience, I learned to see the automotive world through the eyes of a customer. Last but not least, I helped to digitize the Czech ŠKODA AUTO market in various areas. I believe that all the above-mentioned experiences in DigiLab will help me effectively manage and develop a portfolio of digital services for our customers.
