(Třebíč, August 28, 2023) Ladislav Zeman is to become the new Chief Executive Officer of TEDOM Group as of 1 September. Before joining Tedom, he worked in a top management position with the global Otis Group.

Ladislav Zeman will be the new head of TEDOM Group, a leading manufacturer of co-generation units and provider of energy services. He joins the Tedom Group with its 1,000 employees and revenues from sales of approximately CZK 6 billion from the management of the multinational mechanical engineering group Otis, a global manufacturer of elevators and escalators. He will replace Oldřich Šoba, Chairman of the Management Board of Tedom, who temporarily took over the management of the company after the departure of its former CEO, Vladimír Hlavinka, in May 2023.

"Although I have spent most of my professional life abroad, I know Tedom as a successful Czech company that managed to start from scratch and establish itself on foreign markets," said Ladislav Zeman. As the chief executive of Tedom, he wants to build on the work of his predecessors in this position: "It is mainly thanks to them that Tedom is now an ambitious company with a clear strategy, strong background and know-how, a capable team of people and, above all, excellent products and services that have the potential to contribute to the transition to a long-term sustainable economy. I want to contribute my experience to its further growth and build Tedom into a top international company.”

Zeman has spent the last 17 years in management positions at Otis in many different countries around the world. Most recently, seated in Dubai as Head of LEAP Transformation, he led the group's growth and strategic transformation in EMEA with revenues approaching USD 4 billion and 30 thousand employees. Previously, he was Director of Sales, Marketing & Communication for the MEECA (Middle East, Eastern Europe and Central Asia) region, ran the region of Ukraine and the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent Countries), and led Czech, Slovak and Ukrainian entities. In the past, he also worked in consultancy positions in PwC and the United Technologies Corporation.

The Brno native graduated from the Faculty of Economics and Administration at Masaryk University, and completed the Executive Programme at the prestigious grande école HEC in Paris. He speaks fluent English, German and Russian.
