We are Gardner Denver

About us

We are an American company and we provide every kind of administrative and financial service for our European branches. We have been in Brno since 2011 and we quickly grew from the original staff of 30 employees to 200. The corporate world and its anonymity are not for us, as we want to know the names and faces of the people around us, and that has worked well for us. We work in an international environment and we are a diverse group of people, languages and experiences. We communicate daily with customers across Europe and, in total, we can offer greetings in at least ten languages.

If you want to get to know us better, you can find us at Veveří in Brno. We like to be at the centre of events and you can be with us!

How do we work?

For a better idea about us and what we do, you can have a look at the individual departments and what they do.

Department of Finance

Supervision of all financial processes.
  • Accounts Payable teams are responsible for vendor invoices and ensure timely payment of all of our obligations.
  • Accounts Receivable teams analyze the credit risk of individual customers, set credit limits, ensure that all invoice are paid on time and allocate payments in a timely manner.
  • The General Ledger team administers asset accounts, the general ledger accounting books and travel expenditures.
  • Teams of financial controllers and analysts supervise our financial reports and management accounting.

Market Services Department

This department provides management of orders across Europe.
  • The team of Sales Coordinators processes our customers’ orders, handles price offers, verifies delivery dates and supervises adherence to those dates. It also assists the sales managers in various locations and is available to our customers in the event that they have questions.

Smaller but no less important department

  • The Commodity team unifies the global supplier network and negotiates better purchasing conditions for us.
  • The Pricing team sets the pricing policy of our products.

People

Radim Lukeš (33) Project Analyst

Before I joined Gardner Denver five years ago, I travelled a lot and worked in America for a short time. I am a bit of an adventurer and I would never do anything that seemed mundane. That cannot happen to me here, as I am responsible for projects. Each of them is different and when I am working on them, I encounter professionals here in the Czech Republic and abroad who are often leaders in their fields. I learn from them and I try to improve myself; in winter, for example, I earned the PRINCE2 certificate. Instead of having mulled wine at Christmas markets, I soaked up knowledge at courses and the result was worth it.

Petra Linhartová (29) Team Leader Collections + Cash Allocation

Gardner Denver was my first full-time job. I joined the company right out of school and after half a year, I was given the opportunity to advance to the senior position of AR coordinator. I benefitted from language courses in France and, of course, from studying French and English, and thanks to contributions from the firm, I can now study Italian, which is great. After another year and a half in the company, new role of a team lead appeared within my team and I have been lucky enough to occupy that role ever since. What I enjoy the most here is the work with the people within but also outside of the team all around the world, where every day means new challenges and provides valuable experience.

Lilly Ley (23) Sales Coordinator

I have worked for the company since 2017 as a purchaser, so I create orders within the company. I wanted to work for an international company so that I could use my English, which has worked out for me perfectly here – not only in communication with customers, but also within our “multi-culti” team. Which, by the way, is great, because in comparison with my previous job, where there were always a lot of people around me, there are only ten of us on our team. Besides that, I am glad that, thanks to company benefits, I can study Spanish and do sports.

Juan Antonio Contreras (28) Accountant

I have been working for Gardner Denver since September 2017, on the SAP B.1. team as AR and GL coordinator for Gardner Denver Iberica in Madrid, Spain. I am enjoying and learning a lot. In general, it is a great company mainly because of the support I have received from my superiors and colleagues. I am glad I got the opportunity to work here, to learn new things and to grow professionally.

Tereza Meziane (39) Supervisor Market Services

I have been working at Gardner Denver since 2016, when I joined the company as Sales Coordinator for the UK following maternity leave. Even though I had not originally planned it, in September of that year I was promoted to my current position and I am one of three supervisors. I am in charge of a team of several people, which is constantly growing, so I have a lot of responsibility and I need to make decisions quickly. In addition to that, I have to take care of my two children, so I particularly appreciate my flexible schedule and the company’s excellent location, since working in the centre saves me a lot of time. And, of course, I enjoy the open atmosphere and friendly team.
