Jakub Holec, 108 AGENCY founder and CEO, said: “I would like to sincerely thank the entire 108 AGENCY team for their excellent work and determination, and also all our clients for the trust they place in us. Behind our great success at the HOF Awards for the second year in a row is our strong team, the consistent support of our business partners, and in particular our know-how and the base of data which we rely on. I’m proud that we have managed to honour our commitments and as one of the top market leaders in procuring industrial real estate in Central and Eastern Europe, we have defended our 2019 victory. This is incredible motivation for all of us not to slack up and to continue to work hard in the coming years.”
108 AGENCY has been regularly achieving top rankings in the prestigious Central European real estate CIJ Awards since 2015. Its Czech and Slovak branches have won a number of categories over the past four years, including in 2018 when 108 AGENCY Slovakia won the CIJ Best Warehouse Lease award for securing the lease of industrial premises of an area of approx. 40,000 sq m.
The Hall of Fame Awards is organised by Roberts Publishing Media Group, and it brings together professionals in the real estate field and teams from across Central and Eastern Europe, who nominate winners from the prior CIJ Awards. These series of contests are held in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Slovakia. The fifth official HOF Awards 2020 award ceremony was held from 26 – 29 May as a special online webinar due to the current coronavirus crisis.
