Petra Pohořská, the co-owner and COO of ABO valve, won the 14th EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 of the Olomouc Region. The jury, headed by Radka Prokopová from Alca plast, appreciated, among other things, the perseverance and courage with which Pohořská threw herself into establishing business partnerships across continents, as well as her devotion to the family business and respect for her father, who was at the birth of the successful company.

The EY Entrepreneur of the Year is an international competition for entrepreneurs announced annually by the Ernst & Young consultancy. The decisive criteria for the competition are not only financial results, but also entrepreneurial story, integrity and international reach.

We are keeping our fingers crossed for Petra in the national round of the competition, the results of which will be announced on 3 March in Prague. The winner of the nationwide round will then represent the Czech Republic at the world finals in Monte Carlo in June.
