Working with Zdravko is quite an experience. After you delegate a task to him he will get on to it straight away, trying to identify problem from all angles, finding various solutions and finally you can always count that it will be done in best possible way. He doesn’t hesitate to consult others involved in process and to share his ideas aiming to find mutual benefits. He's truly reliable, hard working and open minded person who become close personal friend in I would say short period of time.
