Kateřina studied at International Hotel Management Institute in Prague and gained her MBA at the International Hotel Management Institute in Lucerne, Switzerland.

The main task for Marek Páleník and Kateřina Lenková in their new roles will be to primarily strengthen the position of Vienna House Czech Republic hotels on key markets and find the right balance between continuously satisfied clients, engaged employees and fulfilling shareholders' needs.

“I would like to congratulate my colleagues on their appointments and wish them good luck in their new roles. Marek and Kateřina are highly experienced hoteliers who will lead Vienna House Czech Republic in a strong client-oriented approach. Furthermore, I believe that the exchange of the hotel managers will result in a wider range of experience in our teams and in even closer cooperation within our group on the domestic market,” says Klaus Pilz, Regional Director of Vienna House Czech Republic.
