Experience

He has more than 20 years of experience in publishing. In 1991, he founded Rokus Publishing, which had developed from 1991 to 2005 from a small scale publisher into the first largest Slovenian education publishing house – until today, it has received more than 20 prestigious domestic and foreign awards, and contributed significantly to the improvement of the quality of study materials on the Slovenian market. In 2004, German education publishing house Klett Verlag bought a share in Rokus Publishing, thus enabling the latter to expand outside the Slovenian borders. The company founded subsidiaries in Belgrade and Zagreb. At the 15th anniversary of the establishment of Rokus Publishing, the latter renamed itself into Rokus Klett Publishing as a token of successful cooperation and operations within the Klett group. In 2008, Rokus Klett Publishing became the third largest publishing house in Slovenia.
