Martin Elkán has been named CEO of Czech Post, the ctk news agency reports. Elkán, who headed Czech Post’s marketing division, is expected to lead the institution out of a crisis precipitated by a drop in demand for its traditional services. Czech Post will need to consolidate its finances and expand into new areas, but at the same time meet political demand for it to maintain highly unprofitable small outlets around the country. It currently employs 32,000 people.
