As the Country Sustainability Manager for IKEA Austria, I do have a lot of passion for all environmental and social topics.
I am 36 years old, originally from Slovakia, married and have a five-year-old daughter. In my free time I am an enthusiastic runner. Since 2000, my wife and I have lived in Vienna.
After finishing high school, I started studying economics, but then decided to jump directly into professional life. I worked for different companies before joining IKEA 12 years ago. Last January, I took the responsibility for sustainability at IKEA Austria. In a company that wants to have a positive impact on people and planet, this makes perfect sense for me.
IKEA Austria made a lot of extra effort to support refugees during the crisis in 2015. To get a bigger picture, I applied for the IWitness trip to Jordan. I am looking forward to getting to know how IKEA, the IKEA Foundation and UNHCR are working together.
