Skanska Hungary, the local branch of one of the worldʼs largest construction and project development groups, has announced the appointment of Jakub Krenk as its new branch director for Skanska Construction Romania and Hungary, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
Krenk has 11 years of experience in a variety of managing roles in Skanska, bringing expertise in building large office projects and coordinating diverse teams in Skanskaʼs Hungarian and Romanian construction unit.
"My main objective is to strengthen the well-experienced and motivated teams that Skanska Construction has in Hungary and in Romania," said the freshly appointed Krenk. "In doing so, I am glad to work alongside open and transparent people, who share the same values with Skanska. This means we can grow together, engaging people and bringing to life the amazing projects of Skanska."
The new branch director has spent years working in the companyʼs various branches. Besides holding a number of project management positions, Krenk was also part of task forces related to operational efficiency, risk management, process mapping, and BIM.
In Hungary, Skanska has two business streams under the same roof. Skanska Property Hungary is led, since January 2016, by Marcin Łapiński in the position of managing director, while Skanska Construction Hungary is now managed by Krenk in the position of branch director.
