David Pavlík is set to become the new Chief Technology Officer on 1 June, replacing Ondřej Klamt, who decided to go on sabbatical after more than eight successful years.


The role of Chief Technology Officer is falling into hands of David Pavlík, who has an extensive background at companies like Netflix, SpaceX, Amazon, and has a thorough experience as Chief Technology Officer at ShipMonk and Nano Energies. It is perceived as a natural step in the evolution of the technology department, which has achieved significant success and innovation under the leadership of Ondřej Klamt. “David's arrival is critical to our next phase of growth. His experience and approach are exactly what the Rohlik Group needs for further technological development. At the same time, I would like to express my enormous gratitude to Ondrej for his excellent work with us. His contribution to our success has been enormous and he has left behind a strong legacy that we will build on," comments Tomáš Čupr, CEO and founder of Rohlík.


David Pavlík expressed his excitement about joining the team, "I couldn't resist the opportunity to join Rohlik.

The opportunity that has been presented to me is huge and I think we are just at the beginning."

"Making this decision was incredibly tough," Ondřej reflects, "It was an extremely difficult decision for me, as I can honestly say that I love Rohlik and the experiences I have had here are irreplaceable. Nevertheless, I have reached a point where it is necessary to pass the ball to someone else. I will use that time to recharge and spend more time with my family. I would like to express my gratitude to Tomáš Čupr. He did not only understand my decision but was also extremely supportive.“


Ondřej's tenure at Rohlik since 2016 has been marked by significant technological advancements and innovations, substantially contributing to Rohlik's success and growth.
