“I am excited about the challenges and new responsibility associated with being a Partner in such a dynamic and fast growing firm like Pedersen & Partners.  In my five years with the firm, I have seen the management team show incredible skill in managing intense expansion, while balancing through a less than desirable market and maintain a steady growth across the firm.  It is an honour to be chosen to join this team of strong managers. I look forward in continuing to contribute with my experience as we move Pedersen & Partners to the next level,” added Petra Grabmayer, Partner & Country Manager, Czech Republic.
