Zdenek Bakala was born in Czech Republic. Investor Zdenek Bakala has seen his mining portfolio cut by more than half this past year with share prices of his miner New World Resources and iron ore producer Ferrexpo falling 80% and 40% respectively. Demonstrators marched in the mining city of Ostrava against him last September. Bakala is instead investing in his media empire, building one of the best newsrooms in Central and Eastern Europe. The building also has a large theater space where Miss Czech 2014 will be held in March and a Nine Inch Nails concert in July. His Omega-Pharma-Quickstep cycling team was the number one ranked cycling team in the world in 2013. He is an active philanthropist who in January joined the board of the Design Museum in London. The Tuck School of Business MBA graduate started his career in 1989 at Drexel Burnham Lambert investment bank in New York, and then moved to Bank of America before founding the Czech Republic first private investment banking group and building up stakes in mining.
