As of October 1st, 2016, the Prague Congress Centre has a new General Manager, Mr. Roman Ray Straub. With many years’ successful experience in top managerial positions in Europe and the USA, Roman joins the Prague Congress Centre with the aim of taking the Czech Republic’s largest conference venue into the top 5 European congress centres by 2020.

Roman began his career in operations and soon progressed to sales and marketing positions with Marriot International in the USA, the opening of Disneyland in France, InterCity Hotels in Germany, and with Le Meridien hotels in Portugal, Paris, the Caribbean and the USA.

His first experience in Prague was in the mid 1990’s when he came to oversee the opening of the four-star Don Giovanni hotel. Roman remained in Prague when in 2002 he was appointed General Manager of andel’s hotel, and consequently the Diplomat, Andel’s Suites and the angelo, all of which are part of the Vienna International Hotels & Resorts group. Roman stayed with the Vienna International Hotels & Resorts for over 10 years; in 2006 he was appointed to the group’s board of directors, taking on responsibility for marketing and sales of the whole group, and subsequently playing a major role in the group’s rapid expansion into new markets.

In 2012, Roman moved to Innsbruck, Austria, to take up the position of General Manager of the Grand Hotel Europa, Palenca Luxury Hotels group, where he remained until joining the Prague Congress Centre.

In addition to his native German, Roman speaks fluent English, French and Italian. He also has a working knowledge of Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch and some Czech.
