Prague January 26th 2019 (PROTEXT)
In January 2019, Josef Bečvář, Retired General and former Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic, became president of Glomex Military Supplies - a system integrator and supplier of comprehensive projects and services for armed forces. Glomex Military Supplies (Glomex MS) cooperates on projects in the Czech Republic and abroad, in particular with US manufacturers of high-tech products for which it serves as a system integrator, as well as the marketing, training and service centre for Central and Eastern Europe. Josef Bečvář, as the top manager of the company, is responsible for its strategy and relations with key partners and customers.
Jiří Sadílek, CEO of Glomex MS, commented on the arrival of Josef Bečvář:
"As the Chief of the General Staff of the Czech Army, as well as in other responsible positions, General Bečvář proved to be an excellent manager and has an excellent reputation; his long-term work in a military-diplomatic function abroad is very important for us. So, after completing his military career, he got an offer from our company to become president and executive manager of Glomex Military Supplies. Glomex MS considers his arrival an exceptional opportunity to include one of the most experienced Czech military experts in our team. We participate in a number of strategic armament projects in Central Europe and other regions. We consider it important that an experienced senior manager and a prominent personality of the defense community has become the head of the company. That is why we are informing the general public about this step in a transparent manner."
Josef Bečvář, President of Glomex MS, says: "After reaching the peak in my career in the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic, I decided to start my second career as a manager in a private company. Logically, I wanted to operate in the field in which I had worked for decades. I chose Glomex MS because it offered me a full-fledged management position with a comprehensive responsibility for strategy, marketing and work in teams dealing with individual projects. I thank Glomex MS for this opportunity to gain new experience and to work in the private sector. "
Another important reason for the decision to accept this offer was the company itself: "Glomex MS is a smaller and younger defense and security company that gives me the opportunity to act as an executive manager and grow professionally. It has been able to gain the trust of leading manufacturers and developers from the US and other NATO countries, and successfully implements projects using their technologies in the Czech Republic and abroad. Given that I have spent a significant part of my military career and education in France, I would like to deepen our cooperation with the French defense industry and look for business opportunities in French-speaking countries as well," says Josef Bečvář.
Before taking the post of Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic, Retired General Josef Bečvář served as First Deputy Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic, Chief of the Military Police, as well as the Defense Attaché to France. In combat units, he served in command and staff positions with specialization in artillery and rocket artillery.
