Tomáš Strýček becomes a Cleverlance Group Partner

​Tomáš Strýček has met the demanding criteria of Partnership in the Cleverlance Group and become a partner. He has demonstrated amply his quality in the sphere of IT security and has worked tirelessly at the subsidiary AEC, presiding over a significant increase in the value of the unit assigned him.

After graduating from university in 2001 Tomáš joined KPMG, where he worked with security technology and IS penetration tests. In 2004 he began working as an IT security consultant at AEC, helping to develop the Security Services Department. He later became manager of this emerging team. From 2008, when AEC was taken over by Cleverlance, he managed the IT Security Division and finally became CEO of AEC.

Under Tomáš’s management, over the last five years AEC has expanded its portfolio of services considerably. It has boosted the sphere of IT Security and Information Risk Management services. AEC is the leading supplier of services and products in the information security sphere for banks, insurance companies, telecoms and industrial firms in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The firm has become a supplier abroad by acquiring global contracts in international financial groups. Credit for these successes must go to the outstanding security experts at AEC, the number of which is increasing every year, with both experienced specialists and promising students from university incubators being taken on board. The company offers its customers not only technical innovations but comprehensive solutions adapted to their individual requirements.

Tomáš Strýček has demonstrated that he is able to transform his bold visions into a strategic plan that he then implements. Under his management AEC has become an important player in the sphere of IT security. It gives us enormous pleasure to welcome him on board the Cleverlance Group as a partner,” said Jiří Bíba, CEO at the Cleverlance Group.

“We opted for the concept of Partnership as a method with huge potential for developing our group. It is of benefit to both parties and offers opportunities for the full utilisation of the creative potential of capable people. We not only capitalise on the creative approach of our employees but are open to cooperation with people from outside the company,” said Vít Urbanec, CFO, the Cleverlance Group.
