Business Breakfast with BCC Patron Tesco
There is something special about meeting and listening to this country’s most influential leaders as they open up about their strategies, hardest decisions and overall approach to their careers. Business Breakfasts organised by the BCC provide just that, and that’s why they have been in high demand by our members for several years now.
In another episode of the series, we will be charmed by Katarína Navrátilová, the CEO at Tesco Stores ČR, one of Great Britain’s most successful retailers and by far one of the largest ever grocery and commercial store chains in the world.
Don’t miss out on a unique opportunity for representatives of 15 highly valued BCC members to get to know Katarína better and hear her present her story, her long-lasting dedication to Tesco and her strategy as a CEO. Additionally, you’ll enjoy networking with other CEOs while savouring delicious buffet offerings.
Katarína Navrátilová started working for Tesco in 2000 as a purchasing coordinator. After several positions in the commercial department, Katarína moved to Turkey, where she took over the role of Sales Director at Tesco (Kipa) and, at the same time, became a member of the Board of Directors. After returning home, she became an HR Director for Central Europe and then a Product Director. She currently holds the position of Chief Executive Officer Czech Republic.
Although she likes to develop at work, her family is just as important. Katarina is a mother of two. She likes to engage in sports with her family and spend her free time actively while cycling, hiking or skiing.
Tesco entered the Czech market in 1996 by acquiring 6 Department Stores from K-Mart. In 1998, it opened its first hypermarket in the Czech Republic in Prague – Zličín, and within 17 years, Tesco became a key player in the Czech retail market.
However, Tesco is not ‘just’ a retailer. They pay equal focus and care to their customers and CSR projects. Whether ecology or sustainable entrepreneurship, communities we live in, or children in foster care, Tesco tries to live up to its core values, including: “We treat everyone how we like to be treated”.
