IN SEPTEMBER, Ness Slovensko announced changes to its top management. As of October, Martin Kohút became the new director general of the company. Simultaneously, he became country manager and a member of the European management team of Ness Technologies.
Kohút, originally the chairman of the board of directors and commercial director of Ness Slovensko, replaced Václav Klein, who remains with the company to work as chairman of the supervisory board. Klein, who is also a member of the European management team, is responsible for the development of new projects and international integration at the European level.
Kohút sees public and state administration and regional governments as the key segments for Ness, in which he wants to continue to strengthen the position of the company. He said his ambition is to elevate Ness Slovensko to be amongst the three most important IT companies in each of these segments in Slovakia.
Ness Slovensko is an affiliate of Ness Technologies. It specialises in providing complex IT solutions and services for the most important local companies in the energy and network industries, state administration, finance, telecommunications, industry and services sectors.
In 2005 the company opened a Ness Development Centre in Košice operated by its affiliate, Ness KDC. The centre, which focuses on development and testing of software and related specialised services for Ness’s customers from western Europe and overseas, employs about 250 people.
