Piet Maasland, P.J. Maasland B.V., Netherlands

"I know Zlata for more than 20 years, from the time she was strongly motivated and hard working as production manager flat shadow masks in Philips Simonstone (UK), up till her successfull high-level recruitment and training activities for the Hranice tube factory in Czech Republic and the Namestovo Gun Assembly factory in Slovakia. At the time of these projects, I also met her in the Nanjing tube factory in China, and in HongKong, were she perfectly adapted to quite unexpected situations related to travelling around with a group of engineers from Slovakia! No matter what the circumstances, Zlata keeps going strong, demonstrating competence and reliability, and gaining natural respect of all involved."
