Jan Blaško leaves the management of PPF to focus on his own projects
Following his thirteen-year tenure, Jan Blaško (46) is leaving the management of PPF Group to focus on his own investment projects.
Jan Blaško worked as the Chief of Strategic Business Development from May 2008. He was in charge of finding new opportunities for PPF Group to expand its investment portfolio. As a member of the top executive team of the Group, he also coordinated PPF’s activities in Asia, primarily China, where he had worked for the three previous years, managing the demanding project of establishing the Home Credit China consumer credit business and building its team. This effort resulted in the issuance of an independent consumer finance licence to PPF Group – as the only international company in China. During the previous year, Jan Blaško managed PPF Group’s investments in healthcare and real estate projects.
Petr Kellner, the founder and majority shareholder of PPF Group N.V., said: “Jan Blaško’s has made a great contribution to the Group and I would like to thank him very much for the work he has done in China in particular. I wish him every success.”
