Incheba, The Slovak Spectator corral new managers

Alexander Škurla, 26, recently became the marketing director at Incheba, the trade fair and events organizer in Bratislava.
Škurla, who is single, began studying at the State University in Kiev at the department of international economic relations. In 1990 he left Kiev to continue his studies at the Economics University in Bratislava, from which he graduated in 1993. Upon graduation, Škurla went through several educational stays in Great Britain and the USA. At the beginning of 1995, he started working as an assistant at the department of transition economies at the Economy Ministry.
After a short period of time at the ministry, Škurla was sent on a one-year, post-graduate stay at the Scuola Superiore Enrico Mattei in Milan, Italy, where he studied economy and management of the petrochemical and gas industry. Because of the many countries Škurla studied in, he speaks fluent English, Russian, and Italian and he is conversant in German and Polish.

After his return from Italy, Škurla was promoted to be advisor for the director of transition economies at the Economy Ministry.



Now with Incheba, Škurla believes it is important that "marketing finds a strong position in Incheba." He said he will be satisfied when Incheba becomes a more attractive exhibition and congress center than it is today. How? Through daily work with clients, partners, media and official institutions, he said. "The goals themselves are not important," Škurla said. "What is important, is that one of my goals comes true."

Marián Hitka, 22, has been promoted to the position of financial manager at The Slovak Spectator.

Hitka is pulling double duty by also continuing his studies at the Economic University's Faculty of Informatics in Bratislava, where he focuses on auditing and accounting.

Hitka worked at the Tip Tour travel agency in 1995 as an assistant to the sales manager, and then joined The Slovak Spectator as a financial assistant.

Hitka, who speaks fluent English and Russian, was a part of AIESEC (an international organization of students studying economics) between 1994 and 1996, where he worked on several projects. In his spare time, he likes to learn about new information technologies, enjoys travelling, reading, and spending as much time as he can with his wife.
