Niki Cutts
Niki Cutts
Managing Director

I have been working in Prague since 2004. I moved to Prague, having visited as a student 20 years ago, and I now call it my home. Prague is a wonderful city. No expats want to leave once they have settled here.

I have a Master’s Degree in International Trade & Finance from Lancaster University, UK and an Master’s Degree in International Law from Wirtschaftuniversitat, Vienna, Austria. I have worked in the energy sector since leaving university and have maintained academic contacts while developing business contacts.

If you would like to know how we can help you, please don't hesitate to contact me, or a member of our team.

My areas of expertise include sales, marketing and business development in the energy sectors, and legal advisory work in relation to M&As. As a vegan and environmentalist, I have set up sustainable fashion company BETTER ON ME to produce a hemp-based range of luxury bags.
