MEET OUR TEAM: VÁCLAV SMÍTKA
Today we would like to introduce you Václav, our Chief Technology Officer. Václav joined AMIRES in 2013 as one of the first employees of the company.
He graduated from the Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Civil Engineering in 2009. At the same faculty he finished his Ph.D. in 2013 with the specialization on laser scanning and deformation measurements methods.
His first contact with the research and innovation project is dated back to the time of his studies and employment at the Department of Special Geodesy where he took part in many research and development programmes and projects as a coordinator as well as a member of a research team. At that time he had no idea that preparation and management of these projects would become one of the main part of his professional career.
In AMIRES, Václav started out as a Project Manager, but over time he became more and more involved in the preparation of new project proposals, which became his main job in the company. Currently, he oversees all the activities associated with the new projects preparation and is also involved in new customer acquisition. In addition, Václav is a leader of the Energy and Sustainability team.
About his work he says: “As a tech enthusiast, what I value about my work is that I can be in close contact with people who not only come up with brilliant innovative ideas, but can also transfer and implement them into concrete devices and technologies.
Václav divides his free time mainly between family and sport. He loves volleyball, which he has been playing for more than 25 years. He is also a big fan of ice hockey and American football. His favourite teams are HC VERVA Litvínov and Pittsburgh Steelers.
