2012 AmCham Wings Award for Milena Jaburkova

At Saturday’s 20th Thanksgiving Ball, Milena Jaburkova of IBM was awarded the AmCham Wings Award. The award is given to the member who has personified AmCham’s commitment to make the community better. Milena is the type of individual who, when there is a problem, does not point fingers at others, but points it at herself and gets to work finding and implementing a solution. She challenges conventional thinking, she views “no” as the first step to getting to “yes”, and considers the government a piece to the puzzle, not a separate and alien power.


Her work in Amcham focuses on making the country a hub of international business. This year, her efforts were integral to devising a better policy for immigration and labor. In the next year as the country continues to find its competitive footing, we are counting on her to help us fill the vacuum in positive economic policy that the continuing political crisis has created.

Congratulations, Milena! And get back to work!
