(Prague) – Innovation agency Direct People has grown its team of partners. In January, Josef Dvořák, who has been with the company for four years, became a new partner. At the same time he took a new position of Innovation Delivery Director and is now responsible for the project results.
As part of Direct People he worked on projects for LMC, Česká spořitelna, WAG, Economia publishing house or IDC CEMA. For more than a year now, he has led Direct People’s cooperation with LINET – the third largest global producer of medical beds. In that time they have been able to launch two new digital products on the world market – digital platform SafetyMonitor on the EU market and, in the last quarter of 2019, SafetyPort on the US market. More projects for this client are now being prepared.
Josef came to Direct People from Deloitte where he held various positions working on dozens of IT and strategic projects for diverse clients. He started his career with the Czech Military Intelligence where he was responsible for developing a sophisticated Google-like platform for its employees.
“I have two pillars in life that are important for me – growth and relationships based on honesty and positive thinking. Direct People embodies both of these things for me. As we are constantly creating new things for various clients in virtually any industry, I am learning new things nonstop. That allows me to grow professionally and also as a human. At the same time, the team has become a second family for me. It keeps me grounded and gives me background I enjoy coming back to, even though things do not always go as planned (which is almost all the time in innovations). I am really happy for this amazing cooperation and I’m looking forward to all the great thing that are coming. The plans are huge,” says Josef Dvořák about his promotion.
