New Partners in Penta. Changes in the Group´s top leadership

Penta Investments has three new Partners. Fabrice Dumontheil, Václav Jirků and Marián Slivovič become co-owners and leaders of Penta.

"I am very pleased that our three long serving colleagues have accepted our invitation to become Partners. Fabrice, Vašek and Marián are proven top managers who have significantly contributed to the creation of value in our companies and projects. Our top management is gaining significant strength in a situation where our group is performing well, despite the difficulties caused by the pandemic. Our portfolio of businesses are proving to be quite resilient and our preliminary results for 2020 are far exceeding our initial pandemic forecasts. " said Iain Child, Penta's Managing Partner.

Further, at the end of 2021, current shareholder of Penta and Partner Eduard Maták will end his current position as co-owner of Penta as well as his leadership role in managing Penta´s healthcare investments (Penta Hospitals International and Dôvera zdravotná poisťovňa).

"I have decided that after 20 years of being active in Penta´s leadership, it is a time for change. Penta has always been a very active owner in its companies. Therefore, my close colleague and the new Penta Partner Vašek Jirků will gradually take over the day-to-day active management of our healthcare portfolio. I will continue to be involved through Supervisory Board in both of our healthcare companies, ” said Eduard Maták.
