Tereza Šimková - Asset Manager

You started at CA Immo as a student back in 2019. How did your career progress from student position to asset manager role?

As the youngest member of our Prague team, I started working at CA Immo as a student. My responsibilities included office management and administrative work, which included preparing and filing documents. This allowed me to fulfill my other commitments alongside my studies. Through my daily work in documentation, I was able to follow developments in our portfolio. This gave me insight into the background of our asset department's projects as well as our leases. Overtime, I became more familiar with our portfolio, with the goals of our asset and property department, and I became more involved in our projects and in organizing events. I had the opportunity to follow the progress and activities of my colleagues and understand what was required to make it happen. I was lucky enough to be offered the vacant position of Asset Manager. I am very grateful to the excellent team that was willing to share their knowledge and experience with me. The support allowed me to learn everything an asset manager needs to know in a short period of time. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank them for their support. I am grateful for this opportunity because I really enjoy the daily challenges and tasks of the wealth department.

What advice would you give to other young people if they want to follow the same path as you?

I was lucky to find a company that values personal qualities such as a willingness to cooperate and hard work. My team recognized and appreciated my efforts and my willingness to learn new things. A first piece of advice might be to make sure you work in a company like this. The best way to grow personally and professionally is to gain all the experiences, learn and improve every day.

What fascinates you about the real estate industry?

As an aspiring junior asset manager, I enjoy project planning and execution the most. Building improvements and maintenance always involve something new, so it's exciting, varied work. We recently completed construction on the last two buildings. The development phase of the Riverside Karlín will now continue, with a focus on upgrading the exterior to create not only a suitable working environment, but also a place where our tenants and the local community can spend their time during the day and after work. With this step, we will increase the attractiveness of the campus and even improve the urban environment in this part of the city.
