He was replaced at C.S.CARGO a.s. by Petr Volák. The purpose of these changes is to enhance synergies of all countries where C.S.CARGO operates, mutual cooperation and exploitation of business opportunities.

In April 2012, he was named to the position of general manager of the company and also became chairman of the board of directors of C.S.CARGO a.s.
