From 2004, Jana was in charge of leading Accord Group in Central and Eastern Europe and accomplished - together with her Partners in Poland and Romania, an MBO in 2005.
Being owner and manager of Accord Group in the Czech and Slovak Republic today, Jana continues to operate local and cross-boarder top level search and consulting assignments throughout different industries including finance, real estate, manufacturing and retail.
Her early career was in Human Ressource management within the group Danone and Nestlé.

Due to her origin, experience and family background (she worked and studied in Germany, Czech Republic and Bosnia), Jana feels “at home” in different cultures and languages German, Czech (both mother tongues), French, English (fluent), Russian and Serbian/Croation (working level). Jana is a long-term board member of the French-Czech chamber of commerce and represents CEE on the board of AltoPartners. She is the Treasurer of AltoPartners.
Jana comes from Germany, lives in Prague and is at home in all central and European countries, with a special fable for the Balkans. She is fond of languages and good literature. Her favourite energizer: listen to audiobooks while riding her bicycle.
