Michal’s passion is following winners. Not surprisingly, as well as being a long-term fan of Liverpool, he’s also a key player on Rizlly’s team. Don't let appearances deceive you; with years of customer service experience behind him (he recently celebrated the opening of his 500th store), it’s fair to describe Michal as a seasoned retail veteran.
Want to smile? Then get know Ales. He’s a funny, warm-hearted guy who loves to sing, dance, laugh and live life to its fullest. Taking the same approach to his job, Ales’s unique personality makes Rizlly an even better place to work.
With over ten years’ accounting experience across diverse sectors including insurance, advertising and manufacturing, Adela is totally qualified to keep the Rizlly books balanced. But we always want a good work-life balance too – and Adela also ticks this box. In her free time she cooks, reads, enjoys all kinds of sports and volunteers as a children’s camp leader.
Patrik has been around the warehousing industry over 15 years. As such, he’s a guy who can be trusted to keep everything safe, under control and ready for dispatch when it’s needed. Retail demands efficiency – and so does Patrik.
His deep knowledge of technology and materials means Lukas is our go-to guy when it comes to production expertise. His hobbies include juggling (essential in the Rizlly world), slackline, skiing and in his own words ‘riding any strange things with wheels’. No – we’re still not totally clear what he means by ‘strange things’. Maybe we shouldn’t ask…
With extensive experience in client services, Jakub is all about forging relationships and building bridges. He’s worked with some of the world's biggest brands in sport and knows what it takes to help deliver dynamic results & exciting concepts, all without ever having worn a pair of running shoes. A larger than life character who loves food, travel, laughter, cooking, food, the Greek Islands and food; not necessarily in that order.
Reunited with his sibling Tomas, the Fabulous Cernik Brothers are ready to once again amaze with their incredible circus, sorry, project management skills. Be prepared to be astounded by Petr’s juggling ability and skill in making things appear out of nowhere.
Having travelled and worked around the world, Marcela brings a truly global outlook to everything she does. Equally passionate about people and projects, she has a talent for bringing them together to deliver exceptional results for the most demanding of clients. A self confessed adrenaline junkie in and out of work, she’s experienced, motivated and organised. But don’t be fooled by her determined and professional demeanour; behind that facade beats the heart of a true 70’s disco Queen.
Fun has always been a serious business for Rado. He kicked off his career designing and building playgrounds - and these days, when he’s not focused on fitting out new Rizlly retails design, he’s out for a serious spin on his bike or listening to music.
Martina handles Rizlly’s DTP needs like a champion. Because that’s exactly what she is – a former world champion in the sport of Racketlon, a full-on blend of tennis, table tennis, squash and badminton. It’s not an exaggeration to see Martina as the racket-and-bat equivalent of Roman Šebrle.
Whether in his personal or professional life, Michal loves perfection. It’s not a stretch to call him a renaissance man; a lover of nature, an ardent traveller, a connoisseur of the arts and someone who creates and builds. In other words, Michal adds even more polish to Rizlly’s world-class performance.
Marek is a real all-rounder – in every sense. Professionally, he’s Mr 3D with more than 20 years’ experience creating multi-dimensional visuals and virtual model for exhibitions, interiors and more. Away from the screen, he’s happiest spending time with his family, motorbike, dog and guitar – though not always in that order!
From his early days in the circus as one of The Amazing Cernik Brothers (possibly), Tomas has built on his many skills to be able to successfully juggle multiple projects in the retail industry. He’s travelled the world delivering exciting concepts and his dedication and determination with the details make him a valuable member of the team. He relaxes with Krav Maga and racing dragon boats (seriously?).
If you’re an enthusiastic downhill mountain biker, snow boarder & ice hockey player then the challenges of the retail industry are unlikely to intimidate you. His excellent attention to detail, hard work and a thorough knowledge of manufacturing make Jarda as efficient as his haircut. He’d move mountains to get to the perfect solution .... and if you’d met him you’d know he could literally move a real mountain.
Blanka has worked as an accountant year-round since 2009. But away from work, her activities change with the seasons. When it’s cold, she’s on skis. When it’s warm, she’s on a bike. And no matter what the weather is like, she makes sure her garden keeps looking its best. Then when she finally gets a chance to take it easy, Blanka happily digs into something else: a good book.
Born in Yorkshire and now resident in the Czech Republic, Mike brings the very best characteristics of both these great nations to his life & work. Driven, hardworking, honest and down to earth, he’s responsible for bringing to life some of the world’s most iconic brands with his no nonsense approach, wealth of experience and attention to detail. When he’s not helping to re-invigorate the high street, he can be found throwing himself down mountains on a bike or a snowboard whilst wearing a flat cap.
Rizlly has quite a few adrenaline junkies – and Petr is up there with them. He’s always aiming to go higher travel faster or preferably do both. If you can’t trust a man who engineers and makes his own bike parts, who can you trust?
Need it built? Then you need Martin on your side. He’s one of Rizlly’s turn-it-into-reality specialists who takes an inspired design and makes sure it’s built on time and millimeter-perfect. Away from tape measures and tool kits, Martin focuses on his family and unwinds out in the open on two wheels.
So you think the only things an accountant can punch are the keys on his calculator? Then you need to meet Dominik. Boxing is his thing - so don’t argue about whether a calculation is correct. And when he’s not hitting a punch bag, he’s battling through textbooks in his other life as an economics student.
Today, Gabriela keeps the Rizlly office running. But for three years, she kept people running - and working out in many other ways - as a professional fitness instructor. Although she’s now back in an office environment, she doesn’t take life any easier.
After spending the day indoors, she gets outdoors fast. Whether on a bike, on skis or on foot, Gabriela never relaxes when it’s time to relax. And when she finally puts her feet up, her brain stays fully engaged as she studies yet another personal development book…
A deep inside knowledge of retail + experience working for extreme sports brands = Radek. With a background like this, he’s perfect for Rizlly. And when he’s not helping us stamp an even bigger footprint on the retail world, Radek travels the wider world looking for weird and wonderful subjects to photograph.
Martin’s our on-the-ground expert who draws on extensive construction experience to ensure everything is installed where, when and how it should be. And in his free time, he stays in contact with the ground in a different way…
Martin’s an avid skateboarder. Then when it gets cold, he switches to a snowboard. And on the rare occasions he’s indoors, he makes tracks of a different kind by transforming into a music producer.
Tomas is at the cutting edge of Rizlly’s production department - in every sense. It’s his job to transform Rizlly’s amazing design concepts into even more amazing reality. To do this, he draws on deep experience including three years as a manager in a UK manufacturing company and five years as a site manager with a large building company.
When it’s time to put the tools down, Tomas is (like the rest of Rizlly) sport-mad - especially if engines are involved.
Michal enjoys burning the candle at both ends. Whether it’s solving logistic challenges, doing cross-fit seven times a week, eating vegetables (instead of real food) or taking advantage of Prague’s amazing night life, he always gives 100%.
