Harvard Welcomes Croatian Businessman Tedeschi

Harvard Business School invited Emil Tedeschi, the CEO and majority owner of the Atlantic Grupa, to speak on October 21st, 2015, about his experience creating a multinational company.
The invitation to the lecture states:

“Tedeschi will talk about his entrepreneurial beginnings, which date back to the end of the 1980s, a turbulent period for the European continent due to the fall of the Berlin Wall, which triggered a series of significant events, including the fall of communism in Eastern Europe. Unlike other former communist countries like Czechoslovakia, which went through a peaceful dissolution, former Yugoslavia collapsed into bloody conflict. It was not a very supportive environment for entrepreneurship. From humble beginnings in 1990, Atlantic Grupa has become one of the largest and most respected companies in Central and Eastern Europe. Tedeschi will also talk about how to establish a balance between work and private life, because in addition to running a big company, he finds time for his hobbies – music and basketball (he owns one of the most successful Croatian basketball teams.)”

Last June the Harvard Business School published a study on the takeover of Droga Kolinska five years ago by  Atlantic Grupa. The takeover is used as teaching material at Harvard, and is filed in the school’s database.

In September Euromoney, the leading professional financial magazine in the world, ranked  Atlantic Grupa the best-run company in Croatia, the second-best run company in Central and Eastern Europe, and the best-run company in the food and beverage sector in Central and Eastern Europe.
