THE BEGINNING of 2011 witnessed a reshuffle of the top positions at one of Slovakia’s most internationally well-known companies, Eset. As of January 1, most of the co-owners of Eset, which develops and sells IT security software, left the company’s top management. The departing managers were Miroslav Trnka, Rudolf Hrubý, Maroš Grund and Anton Zajac. Another co-owner, Richard Marko, who previously worked as chief technology officer, became director-general, the SITA newswire reported.

“This step is part of a re-organisation of the company,” said Trnka. “The current owners, except Richard Marko, are leaving the operating management. This re-organisation will not touch upon the ownership structure.”

Trnka is not leaving Eset completely as he remains a member of the board of trustees and thus will continue to have an influence on the company’s strategic direction. According to the Trend weekly, Trnka may be involved in the future in searching for and fostering new ideas, as well as by lecturing.

Eset, which has appeared several times in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Central Europe ranking as one of the fastest growing technology companies in central Europe, was established in 1992. In addition to developing IT security software it is part of the global fight against new computer threats.

The company, which is exclusively Slovak-owned, is based in Bratislava, and has branches in Prague, San Diego, Buenos Aires and Singapore. It is represented in over 180 countries. In 2008 Eset opened a development centre in Krakow, Poland. It had global sales of €115 million in 2009.
