Simon Capek

CEO

Šimon is our CEO.

At the end of the 1990s, as an employee of Seagram’s, he helped bring the Mexican beer Corona to the Czech market. A few years later, he brought Red Bull to the Czech Republic, and built an awareness of energy drinks throughout the country. For 13 years, he served as the company's Executive Director and Marketing Strategist. He spent the next 5 years growing the company in Asia as Regional Marketing Manager. He was responsible for 29 countries across the continent, including Turkey, India and Japan.

Šimon likes to travel and do anything outdoors. His weaknesses are the Ore Mountains, grunge and his family (including all his pets).

"I am happy to have helped bring something ground-breaking to the market. I firmly believe that a clear company policy and marketing strategy can work sales miracles, and build a new category of product that both customers and employees are loyal to."

"Moreover, I love the fact that Mana is an all-Czech brand and product, which is environmentally friendly to boot. For me, it's a bit of a higher purpose."
