Sazka SA Appoints New CEO

News broke this week that a former Managing Director of T-Mobile Austria, Robert Chvatal, has accepted the position of CEO of the embattled Czech lottery company Sazka SA, whose responsibilities he will take up in February.

The appointment was announced by Sazka owner KKCG Investment Group, and its spokesman assessed the new appointment as the beginning of a new era, a period of extensive development and growth.

About the new Sazka CEO, Pavel Saroch, chief investment officer for KKCG said: 'Robert is a seasoned manager with international experience.

'Thanks to more than 15 years working in the highly competitive environment of mobile cordless communications as well as marketing know-how he gained while serving with Proctor and Gamble and Reckitt Benckiser, he will be an exceptionally valuable asset for Sazka's future development.

"I hold in high esteem his reputation as a manager who lays strong emphasis on teamwork as well as on communication with customers, employees and shareholders.'

Saroch himself revealed plans to ensure the development of Sazka's non-lottery part of business, and to seek new ways of exploiting its distribution network of over 6,500 terminals.

This aspect of Sazka's growth will be the responsibility of Martin Blaha, whom Chvatal will join, as well as Kamil Ziegler, on Sazka's board of directors.

'Following a decade abroad, I am happy to accept this offer to serve in an important management position in the Czech Republic. An appointment to the helm of such a prestigious company as Sazka is a great challenge. Together with a credible and competent management, I want to continue to develop Sazka's business and prepare it for further expansion,' Chvatal said about his new position.
