Petr Klouda

Vice President of Global Sales at Kentico Xperience

Why I love Kentico

Nothing is impossible in Kentico. At least in my experience. If you have a good idea that you are willing to put time and energy into, and you are able to convince others of its merit, you will always get an opportunity to bring your concept to life. You see nothing like that anywhere else. I have worked in many companies but none of them compare to Kentico. Here we have an absolutely unique approach to people. What you agree upon is set in stone, micromanagement is non-existent, and we treat each other as human beings first and co-workers second.

My job at Kentico

Together with my team, my main responsibility is to secure enough revenue to not only cover payrolls but also to enable the growth of Kentico Xperience. I look for new ways to transform our business so as to achieve the goals that Petr Palas and Dominik Pintér have set out for our Kentico Xperience division. I define our business strategy and come up with ways to achieve the best possible results through an international team of talented sales representatives. Kentico is all about the great people I get to work with. Every day, I get the opportunity to learn from my colleagues, our business partners, and from our customers too. In terms of positions within this industry, I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot.

My journey

I don’t have any special education in business. But I have 10+ years of experience in customer experience, sales, and key account management that, together with common sense, helps me to be a better sales leader. Before I came to Kentico in 2016, I was working in Moravia Propag where I was a key account manager for brands such as Coca-Cola. Later I was a key account manager in CCV/Grit where I cooperated on the strategic development of our customers. Then an offer from Kentico came. I was always drawn to the international business environment. I wanted to explore the world, different countries, cultures and meet interesting people coming from diverse backgrounds... In Kentico, I can do all of it, firstly as a Sales Director for EMEA, later as the VP of Global Sales for the Kentico Xperience division.
