IESC business volunteers leave Slovakia

The International Executive Service Corps, an American-based organization on retired business executives and other experts helping businesses around the world closed its office in Slovakia on September 30, "after seven years and more than 300 consulting missions in Slovakia," said Donald J. Shaughnessy, IECS's country director in Slovakia.
But a Slovak organization will be created to take the place of IESC, with an experienced staff and initial American funding to provide busines and marketing services. The new group will also offer the same kind of consulting assistance IESC offered, drawing on the same pool of American volunteer experts to help Slovak companies find their way into the markets newly opened to them around the world.

Miriam Sedláčková, IESC partner, said that the new consulting group will be known as Partners for Business Growth (PBG), and will be staffed initially by four key Slovak employees of IESC. "We are very satisfied with IESC's work, but we want to continue what they started," said Sedláčková.
