Michaela Chaloupkova has been working for ČEZ for almost 11 years. She started her career there as a sales referent
and worked her way up to the Head of purchasing department, where she was responsible for purchasing all services and materials needed for building and maintaining power plants, distribution networks, for coal mining and for the overall function of the ČEZ Group. No wonder that in 2010, she became a member of the company’s board, the only female one. You can say about Michaela, that she has personally been through every ladder in the company management. Since 2014 she’s been leading the Group human resources with more than 500 people in her team. In 2012, she first appeared in the Top 25 business women survey by Hospodarske noviny and one year later, she was voted the 4th most powerful woman within it. Michaela has a four-year old son, so work-life balance is a very live topic for her.
