It's not about energy prices, but about differences across Europe, says head of Strnad's CE Industries group

Adam Šotek, the head of Jaroslav Strnad's large industrial holding CE Industries, talks about the threatened industry, the energy crisis, the railway business and entering new industries.

Unlike the experienced "production man" Jaroslav Strnad, he prefers numbers. However, both of them share a passion for rescuing and restructuring traditional industrial companies. Adam Šotek, a native of Opava, has extensive experience with crisis-ridden companies. For several years he worked with the well-known crisis manager Václav Novák at M.L. Moran. In 2019, however, he joined forces with former arms tycoon Jaroslav Strnad to help him build the civil industrial holding CE Industries.
