Pavel BrůžekPartner and Chairman of the Board of Directors
Pavel Brůžek is the personification of the term “family office”. As a successor of his father’s successful business, Pavel maintains a role of active investor and manager of family and bpd group’s assets.
His driving motivation is to constantly seek added value for his family, partners, employees and the society as a whole. Having grown professionally in his father’s company Draslovka Kolin from secretary through strategic development to Technical Director, Pavel learned how to deal with challenging and complex business issues since his very early age. He has sharpened his business knowledge with an executive MBA degree. Pavel‘s successful history of project executions have secured him a role of Chairman of the Board at bpd partners, where he continues to apply the principles of responsible and sustainable asset management.
When Pavel was asked for his interpretation of “Family Office” he replied: “For me, personally, family office means a responsibility to take care of the wealth and the legacy (in form of values and reputation) of our families for future generations. I have been raised by my parents in the way to understand that wealth does not equal money, but that wealth is created by what we can learn, what we can create and how many people we can help. So, now I understand that working hard, acting in a fair and ethical manner, doing right things for the right reasons is superior to profit maximization at any cost. This might not be the fastest nor the easiest way of doing business and creating value, but it is certainly the most sustainable way that one can pass onto the next generation.”
In his early age, Pavel was a successful snowboarder, representing the Czech Republic at international stage. To the date, Pavel maintains a positive relationship to winter sports.
He is married and has two children.
