Tomas delivers upon his strong blend of product and project management; keeping the customer in the forefront at all times. He has proven to maintain a clear focus on delivering new products and international projects - always hitting his targets. I would highly recommend Tomas for his in-depth knowledge and ability to get things done!
CEO of Yettel Bulgaria
I have known Tomas for the last 2.5 years and the pleasure of working with him as COO in Restu over the last 18 months. During this time Tomas was my co-MD with Restu. Tomas is an extremely dedicated and conscientious director being able to collaborate well at the C-Level as well as engage with the team to deliver on time and to budget. What I appreciated most was his ability not to be phased by the ever-changing circumstances of our business – and willingness to solve difficult people and operational situations. He shares a similar strategic, operational and hands-on mentality that I do which helped shape our team. Tomas is extremely fair minded and rational which helped us create an environment of trust in an uncertain COVID environment allowing Restu to hit incredible NPS ratings from our staff. In my view I believe he is ready for bigger things and would endorse him fully for a leadership position in operations, finance or direct company leadership and would gladly work with him in the future.
CEO of Restu
Tomas is a very skilled senior manager, who not only ensures that all the projects he is responsible for are completed problem-free, but that they also maintain very high quality at the same time. During my work with him, I had no problems with our communication and cooperation, and Tomas’ problem-solving skills are on point - he is dedicated to his work and comes up with great ideas on how to improve an existing project. I can recommend him 100% as it was a true pleasure to work with him.

It is always a pleasure to work with Tomas either as a colleague on new projects or on an external basis during my past experiences with him in Euphony and GTS Novera.
special projects manager at Seznam.cz
I had been working with Tomas on several projects related to internet and voice products. The cooperation has always been fruitful, as Tomas contributed with both technical knowledge and customer oriented approach. Together with the willingness to search for a most efficient solution and avoid the unnecessary complexity we were able to achieve what was needed. That's why I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tomas.
application manager, DWH & BI expert
I love working with Tomas. He is not just a senior product manager with deep product knowledge, but also a reliable team player and overall pleasant colleague.
content wizard at Vodafone
I used to work with Tomas on the same sales and product team and can recommend him wholeheartedly. He is an experienced professional with a team spirit and I could always feel his positive attitude around the workplace wanting to improve and innovate on things. His time management capabilities were a great inspiration not only to myself. Tomas is very bright, efficient, prompt and an original thinker. I respect him very much. I wish he never left GTS!
wholesale account manager at TMCZ
Tomas is a really interesting person to me. When I first heard his story about how he started something like Lingvus I was amazed. Since then I have always admired his rationality and sense of humor, which perfectly goes along with his role in the business. Tomas represents a benchmark to which I compare myself. He is the kind of person who does things rather than talks about them and even when the outcome is not what is expected, Tomas sees the positives and takes all the experience in order to succeed in the future. I will always be happy to work or cooperate with him.
experienced sales and management professional
We contracted Tomas as an external consultant of Hospitality Digital to help us better understand the product value of a company we had acquired in the Czech Republic. Our cooperation started as a six month project and was recently successfully concluded after almost three years, with Tomas also acting as COO and MD of the acquired company. I appreciated his hands-on approach, focus, clarity of communication and reliability he showed even in very difficult times when dealing with a company reorganisation. I fully recommend Tomas as an independent consultant as well as team player and would gladly work with him in the future.
Dr. Volker Glaeser
CEO of Hospitality Digital GmbH (Metro AG)
I worked with Tomas on the digitization project in METRO AG and every step of this journey was structured and held under control by Tomas. Tomas is an expert project manager with great communication skills and a reliable attitude.
HoReCa Marketing & IT Manager at MAKRO Cash & Carry CR
I have been working with Tomas for almost 3 years in Restu, where he initially started as an external business consultant and gradually became the COO and managing director of the company. I appreciated that Tomas was always interested to hear my market feedback so that the product and sales activities were in line with what our HoReCa customers expected. Tomas is not only a leader and expert in product and project management but is also very much hands-on when it comes to problems that need fixing. He also acted as our CFO and worked closely with the international legal teams, which helped me always get the correct up-to-date customer facing legal documents without any hassle. I enjoyed our positive can-do cooperation. I can comfortably recommend Tomas for any organization. I look forward to the possibility of working with him in the future again.
Alex Van Damme
Managing Director at Gastro Partners Kft
I had the opportunity to cooperate with Tomas in Restu for almost 3 years. He started as an external consultant and project manager contracted by our mother company to manage the product integration of both companies. Later he also became the MD and COO of the company. Foremost, I valued Tomas’s willingness to listen and search for solutions holding benefits for customers as well as efficiently taking advantage of resources available to the company. Tomas was also able to fight for our team’s priorities within the mother company’s corporate environment and he always respected and stood by our agreements. He brought a breeze of fresh air and a new perspective of looking at things. I would gladly work with Tomas again in the future should there be such an opportunity and recommend him wholeheartedly.
CEO of Restu
I met Tomas in Zoot during a company crisis and severe circumstances from both managerial and financial perspectives. Tomas took over as IT Director (CDO) a difficult task of leading a wide variety of teams and personalities while tackling a challenging financial situation. Tomas quickly merged with about 40 of his IT team members and introduced a single company view on all product and project activities with the goal of clearly prioritising the financial impact of these into the company’s financials during top management meetings. I appreciated Tomas’s character, human touch and clear communication, which he was able to use also during difficult situations such as letting go some of our employees. These are some of the reasons why I recommend Tomas for any IT managerial role.
Director of HR at Zoot
I worked with Tomas as business analyst in e-commerce company Zoot, where Tomas was responsible for the entire IT division as CDO. Tomas gave me not only the freedom to decide on how to manage my work but also the support and guidance in those moments that things did not go smoothly according to plan. Tomas introduced a transparent business prioritization process into Zoot for all product and project management activities, which was a significant change from the punk environment we were used to. I appreciated the clarity this brought to answering why we worked on something and what it was. I also liked his personal approach to things. It was great to work together.
Business and Data Analyst at Zoot
I worked as an external lawyer with Tomas on the contractual documentation within the Mall Pay project. I appreciate Tomas’s ability to very well understand legal texts, revise them and to lead contract negotiations with customers. He was also able to give me well articulated requirements and expectations regarding the creation of new contracts and amendments of existing ones, even though his expertise lies in a completely different field – project management. Our cooperation was always factual and constructive. I wish all my clients were like that! I will gladly work with Tomas in the future.
Klara (Kokoskova) Wagner
Attorney At Law at Ostry & Co.
I have known Tomas for many years and we have worked on a variety of projects. To this day his ability to manage his schedule fascinates me and I’m pretty sure that he could lecture others about time management. In the projects we shared, he was always able to clearly articulate the scope of work and was a strong partner for me to discuss the essential cornerstones of our technical approach. He has also strong understanding of financial management as well as legal, tax and bookkeeping experience which enabled him to manage a wide range of both activities and teams. If I had such an experienced person to work with on every project, my job would be much easier!
PHP developer & architect
I got to know Tomas as co-founder of Lingvus, which was a startup we accepted into the early days of our StartupYard accelerator program. In those days Tomas was a young and enthusiastic founder who wanted to disrupt the world of corporate translation companies with the idea of a reverse auction marketplace that would connect both sides of the market – professional translators and customers. Even though he and his team did not succeed, I saw Tomas’s dedication, focus and hard work he put into this startup idea, which is the key to any endeavor. I also enjoyed his positive spirits and vibes he brought to our accelerator.
COO of StartupYard
I met Tomas in 2012/13 as a mentor of StartupYard, a technology start-up incubator in Prague. At the time, Tomas struck me as a bright young entrepreneur who along with his co-founder and team wanted to innovate within the translation market industry and although their start-up idea failed in the end, I’m positive that Tomas’s work ethic, energy and professional business approach is something that will lead him to success in the long run. I enjoyed my meetings with him and the team and wish them all the best.
Head of NEWTON Business Accelerator & M&A Advisor at NEWTON University
I was in Tomas’s team as Android team leader and Tomas was Head of mobile development. I enjoyed the freedom that Tomas gave me and my team while also knowing that he would shield us from things that most developers deem to be useless waste of time. Tomas expected us to deliver great results, but at the same time he always listened to and challenged our proposals, which upon acceptance we had the liberty to deliver as we saw fit on time and on budget. We also had a fantastic atmosphere within the team and enjoyed it also outside of work. I would be happy to work with Tomas again.
Android developer & architect at Toggl
I met Tomas at a project for Vodafone as a junior IT analyst. I recognized immediately that Tomas is a really skilled worker with a proactive attitude. I really love his ability frankly to elbow the team's way to a viable solution for the client and for the team as well. We were between the rock and the hard place in the time when Tomas came to the project. So I would say - he showed us really a tremendous performance in crisis management. I hope and would like to work with Tomas again. Work with him was fun and you always know that there is someone taking care of you and your fellows in the team.
Business and IT Analyst at Komercni banka
I first met and worked with Tomas at Inventi, where Tomas initially led the largest company project – a software delivery for Vodafone. He was then also in charge of mobile development and a team developing VR and AR apps. I perceive Tomas as a senior project manager who is able to calmly evaluate even crisis situations, risks, benefits and then articulate his reasoning and lead people to the desired solution. Not only that, he is also a nice guy with whom one has the desire to go out after work for a beer :-)
Zuzana Matajova (Faltusova)
Sales and HR manager, Consulting and IT Technology Services
I cooperated with Tomas on several projects and I can recommend him with pleasure. Great mind, great ideas, always delivers more than expected, and all with professionalism and a smile. It´s great value to have Tomas on the team.
Jana Galvis Rivera
Head of Digital at Blue Style
I worked with Tomas on the BidSimplifier project in Vodafone CZ, which Tomas took over as project manager working for Inventi on the vendor side. At the time the project was significantly delayed and over budget. The overall situation was worse still due to the suboptimal quality of delivery. Tomas’s arrival gained me an important partner to rely on. The organizational changes he made within the vendor team made it not only possible to successfully deliver the project but also to properly hand over the maintenance and further development to a third party in due time. We really clicked on a personal level as well, I admired his reliability and willingness to search for solutions at any given situation. These are some of the reasons which make me recommend Tomas wholeheartedly.
Delivery & Bundle Manager at Vodafone CZ
I worked with Tomas as a Java developer at Inventi and Tomas acted as project manager on several projects. I appreciated Tomas’s lead as he was always clear about what goals are ahead of us and what are the expected results and requirements we had to achieve. He enabled me to work to the best of my abilities and gave me the freedom as well as the responsibility to make my own decisions. He is also a great guy to hang out with and I would enjoy working with him again!
Full Stack Developer at Investown.cz
I worked with Tomas on Lymet, a fintech project for Home Credit, which we had to rebrand as Mall Pay and transfer the solution to its new owner Mall Group. For me Tomas was a partner I could rely on to handle the entire project, financial and operational agenda, while I was able to fully focus on the product and technical side of the project. I very much appreciated Tomas’s attention to detail and organisational skills.
CTO of Skip Pay
I worked with many project managers during my career but I must say Tomas is by far one of the best project managers I had the chance to work with. He is very organised, precise and not afraid to get his hands dirty when issues arise. His patience and willingness to have things done pushed us to deliver the project deadlines and eventually to the successful completion. Hopefully I will have the chance to work with him again on another project soon.
DevOps Engineer at Trustsoft
Tomas is a highly skilled Project/Program Manager. We hired him in a critical phase of one larger migration project, and he proved his skills and professionalism. He quickly got to grips with the issue and brought the whole project to a successful end. I look forward to working with him shortly.
CEO of Trustsoft
We hired Tomas at Trustsoft to help us at a critical stage of a challenging project that needed to get done. There were many issues on both sides of the delivery, and we needed someone to quickly get a grip on where we stood, what options we had, and how to strengthen the team and get results – fast. And that's what Tomas did. Now that the project has been successfully delivered and transitioned into its support stage, we are exploring more ways of taking advantage of Tomas's unique skill set so he can help us further grow our company.
COO of Trustsoft
Thank you for your exceptional leadership during our six-month project. Your direction, guidance, and attention to detail were invaluable to the project's success. Your positive attitude and open communication style created a collaborative and productive environment. I highly recommend Tomáš to anyone looking for a skilled and experienced project manager.
Front-end React Team Lead at Inventi
Tomas joined us at Restu as an external project manager to lead the integration of Restu and its mother company Hospitality Digital owned by Metro AG. Later on he became the Managing Director and COO of Restu, thus becoming my direct manager. I appreciated working on Tomas’s team as he enabled me to improve on my strengths, ability to prioritise and focus on results, while at the same time he gave me the independence to work the best I could and the freedom to manage my time while meeting the agreed goals. The only thing I regret is that the project has now concluded and our cooperation came to its end. I recommend Tomas wholeheartedly and would happily work with him in the future.
