Make our team your team

Zbynek Zelenka

General Manager

I founded ZELENKA in 1990 with the vision of building a company full of quality and reliable experts. I wasn’t afraid to surround myself with people who were better than me, and I listened to them carefully. As a result, we managed, step-by-step, to build up a translation company our partners could rely on whenever they need us.

Roman Zelenka

CEO

Over the years, I have worked in every position in our company, and in 2008 I took over. I identify with its defined values and every day I help the whole ZELENKA “family” do the same. Honesty, fairness, the courage to work hard, and a friendly approach – these are the strengths we use most when helping you succeed.

Iva Zelenkova

Customer Relations Director

My job mainly involves keeping in close contact with our VIP clients and providing them with the best care possible. I joined the company in 2007 and am very happy to see where we’ve come since then and how positive the feedback we receive is. ZELENKA is where my heart lies.

Juraj Porada

Head of Sales

I’m in charge of ZELENKA’s sales department. I make sure our clients from both the Czech Republic and Slovakia have everything they need. A fair and friendly approach is a big part of what I do, and that’s another reason why I enjoy my job so much.

Krisztian Szinapisz

Sales Director (DE/AT/CH)

For years I’ve been in charge of a team of sales representatives for German-speaking markets and I deal with VIP clients. I take pride in being reliable and precise, and I keep my word under any circumstances.

Michael Borkovec

Head of Projects

I’m in charge of all our projects, and I’m going to successfully finish yours, too. It’s all thanks to my years of experience and our team of very competent colleagues. As my business card says – ‘Leave your worries to me’.

David Moznar

PM Team Leader, Deputy Head of Projects

I’m a warrior in my heart and soul, and you can see it in my work. I fight for every single project of our Czech and Slovak clients and I don’t stop until they are absolutely satisfied. And that’s something you can absolutely count on too.

Katerina Zabka

PM Team Leader

My job requires a fine mixture of flexibility, technical proficiency, and empathy as well since I work with clients from the most prestigious agencies. I also master precision at everything I do and working effortlessly to improve my leadership skills to be the best leader for my team.

Barbora Smykalova

PM Team Leader

I’m good at anticipating what our clients need and I do my best to meet their expectations. I’m good at communicating and it helps me successfully negotiate with VIP clients from German-speaking countries.

Tereza Verbikova

Quality Manager

I am responsible for making sure that we consistently maintain the highest level of quality in our translations and that we meet all international standards. Being a quality manager also means preserving the quality of the services we provide and all internal processes in the company.

Jana Pokorna

HR Manager, Vendor Manager

My primary objective is to make sure our colleagues and translators feel well taken care of and feel motivated. One way of doing this is through our team building activities and training events which I help organize. And as an HR manager, I always treat everyone fairly and give them a chance to show their best :-)

Iveta Pucalikova

Vendor Manager

My role at ZELENKA is establishing cooperation with new translators, proofreaders and even DTP specialists, and caring for the current ones. If you’re thinking about joining our team don’t hesitate to contact me at vendors@zelenka.cz or +420 775 867 700. I’ll be happy to go through any questions you may have and you’ll see we come to an understanding :-)

Dana Shuster

Business Development Manager

My job is to establish partnership with translation agencies from Europe and the USA. Their working style is very similar to my own, I admire their drive and precision and I'm inspired by them every single day.

Eric Jokiel

Business Development Manager

My specialization is people! I love the fact that my job requires daily interaction with clients and colleagues. I am responsible for establishing new partnerships with clients from German-speaking countries. I bring a personal touch to my friendly approach and a willingness to go the extra mile to help our clients in any situation.

Roger Smith

Business Development Manager

A huge part of what I do is to make sure our clients' well-being is a top priority. As a Business Development Manager, the most important skill, that constantly needs refining, is the ability to really listen to the clients and make sure we provide the exact services they really need. “If you want to go fast, go alone if you want to go far, go together.” - This motto is easy to live by if you are surrounded by like-minded people.

David Klouda

Marketing Communications Manager

I'm in charge of showing the world the great job my colleagues do and how they can get the most out of our services. Marketing materials, social media, PR, dealing with service providers... no matter what I'm doing, I make sure that the spirit of our company shines through: top-quality translations with a human touch.

Jiri Kouril

Head of DTP

Since an early age, I needed to have everything neatly organized, arranged and in its place. I had no idea that this would become so handy in my role as the Head of DTP. Everything we produce needs to be exact and meet our client’s requirements. And I can keep my eagle eye on it.
