What other says

“Milan has qualities that are rarely found on the market today. He is a┬átrue leader who knows how to send positive vibes, motivate┬ápeople and achieve results beyond all expectations.

A Master of life┬áand business!”

– Dusan Kaljevic /General Manager and Board Member at OOO Filippo Berio RU –

“My great privilege to recommend Milan is based on following facts, evidence and benefits :

A/ PROACTIVE: From the very first time we met each another denied that problems exist. For him everything problems are simply an opportunity. We’ve had two managers whose assessments indicated certain skills problem and he insisted that each of them has a training and fair chance to develop themselves in order to become better performers. On top of that, he took personal responsibility┬á for training and coaching them.

B/ Person who sees the BIG PICTURE: At the beginning of each meeting we held Milan expressed his vision  which he would like for us to achieve. He always knew in which direction he would like to lead his company and colleagues.

C/ WIN-WIN PERSON: Milan’s attitude is always in a line with readiness to achieve better results for both sides rather than to care about his interests only. His ability to see things from another person’s point of view was more than obvious when he made a project regarding Coffee machines, where both sides, the manufacturer and consumer were had their expectations fulfilled.

D/ person of SINERGY: Milan always underlines the necessity to understand that all departments in a company are one entity. He says that the ballace sheet and EBIDA are the same for the whole company so each department has to contribute to them and be aware of each other’s impact. In his present job he has been trying to convince and make people understand that ┬áhuman relationships are more important than professional roles and that other sectors, such as logistics, warehousing, HR and others are as important as marketing, sales and finance. For me it is a true priviledge to know, work and learn from a great leader such as Milan.”
