The new branch OKIN FACILITY BG in Bulgaria will be led by Martin Šmíd

Martin Šmíd became the director of OKIN FACILITY BG EOOD, a new subsidiary company of OKIN GROUP, a. s. His assignment will be to develop successfully the commercial activities on the Bulgarian market and to gain the position of a leader in the field of integrated facility management (IFM).

“The main challenge for me is to prepare the Bulgarian market for providing IFM services,” comments Martin Šmíd his entering into the office of director of the Bulgarian company OKIN FACILITY BG EOOD, and adds: “It results from our present analyses that the Bulgarian market is relatively well prepared for the arrival of an IFM provider. In connection with extensive building-up of new administrative, commercial and logistic projects, often realized by foreign investors, space is opening for providers of quality supportive services as well. I am sure that with our supply of complex services we are able to satisfy the market demand and to ensure the same level of provided services to the clients from among foreign investors and developers they are used to in their native countries. Naturally we will also concentrate on local Bulgarian companies that are interested in having supportive services provided in the form of outsourcing.”

Martin Šmíd has rich experience in the field of facility management. He is coming to the company OKIN GROUP from Česká spořitelna, where he held the position Head of Property management division. He also worked at Komerční banka as a Head of Facility management division. “In my new position I want to make good use especially of my long-term experience from the facility management field. As a former client of the companies providing FM services I can now put myself better in the place of our clients and understand their needs,” closes Martin Šmíd.

Martin Šmíd is married with two children. He spends his free time with his family and travelling, sport and motoring are among his hobbies.
