Prior to joining GPlus she worked for the European Commission’s DG Information Society and Media, where she was closely involved in the media relations around one of the most sensitive EU proposals on roaming charges for mobile phone users. She also helped with the communication of two other priority areas of the DG: the launch of the .eu domain and the IST Event 2006.
Previously, she worked for the Permanent Representation of the Slovak Republic in Brussels, Berlin-based Eurocast and the Association of European Radios. She has journalistic background from the Czech Information Agency in Prague and she collaborated shortly with the Project Finance Forum for Africa.
Zuzana Púčiková graduated in Economics, specialising in Management and Marketing. She holds a Master’s degree in European Integration and Development from VUB and a D.E.S.S. in Communication and European Affairs from IHECS.
