His first experience in Prague was in the mid 1990’s when he came to oversee the opening of the four-star Don Giovanni hotel. Roman remained in Prague when in 2002 he was appointed General Manager of andel’s hotel, and consequently the Diplomat, Andel’s Suites and the angelo, all of which are part of the Vienna International Hotels & Resorts group. Roman stayed with the Vienna International Hotels & Resorts for over 10 years; in 2006 he was appointed to the group’s board of directors, taking on responsibility for marketing and sales of the whole group, and subsequently playing a major role in the group’s rapid expansion into new markets.

In 2012, Roman moved to Innsbruck, Austria, to take up the position of General Manager of the Grand Hotel Europa, Palenca Luxury Hotels group, where he remained until joining the Prague Congress Centre.

In addition to his native German, Roman speaks fluent English, French and Italian. He also has a working knowledge of Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch and some Czech.
