Since 1st October 2018, Zentiva has officially been an independent company, owned by the investor Advent International. However, the first joint project, the strategic partnership in Hungary, already started a few months ago. In the meantime, the partnership has expanded to 13 countries.
To learn more about the new Zentiva setup, the European activities, and to discuss the country plans for the upcoming year, participants from both companies came together for the first Partnership Meeting on 20th and 21st November 2018 in Prague.
Robert Storch, Trade & Revenue Head at Zentiva, and Nemanja Jankovic, Head of Partnerships at PHOENIX group, welcomed the participants and gave an update about both companies and about potential collaboration projects. After that, the Hungarian teams which have already been working together, shared their experience of their strategic collaboration.
On day two, all country teams discussed and later presented their concrete country plans for the next year. In a very friendly and trustful atmosphere, the meeting represented a successful kick-off of the European Partnership.
"The partnership between Zentiva and PHOENIX is a great match, not only because we are operating in the same industry, but also because Europe is OUR homeland." – Robert Storch, Zentiva
"As PHOENIX group we believe that Zentiva is an excellent partner of choice for the European Partnership, that is based on the company’s history, broad portfolio and presence in large number of European markets." – Nemanja Jankovic, PHOENIX group
