Welcome, Miloš! “This time next year…”

09.08.2018

It is a pleasure to adorn oneself with the light figures of an entire guild. In our case there is one at the very top: the inventor and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla, according to “Encyclopedia Britannica” one of the ten most fascinating personalities in human history and for many “The Genius Who Lit the World”, as a documentary film about him was called. With Miloš Stojković, the new Senior IT Application Manager in our IT Services team, comes another pinch of Tesla to TSCNET Services. Miloš finished the Electrotechnical High School “Nikola Tesla” in Belgrade, Serbia, before completing his studies at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering / Power Systems at the university there.

He also shares something else with the legendary electricity pioneer: Miloš got around a lot in his profession – since the end of his studies in 2004 he has worked in a total of 15 different countries on almost 60 projects ranging from the “Azerbaijan-Georgia-Turkey Power Bridge Project” via “System Analyses for Connection Study of a Thermal Power Plant” through to the “Study of Technical Solution for the Connection of a Wind Farm”. The past seven and a half years he worked with the Electricity Coordinating Center in Belgrade. IT and software usually played a central role. He should therefore have all the necessary prerequisites for his new role in our company as one of the product owners for the new system tools development. And he has ambitious goals: Miloš chose TSCNET because “here I can put most of my expertise into the balance to bring about a real improvement in an eclectic way”.

This leads us straight to Miloš’ favourite TV series: “Only Fools and Horses”. The sitcom is considered the most popular British series of all time. It is about two brothers and their grandfather and their not that successful attempts to earn as much money as possible with dubious businesses in the shortest possible time. A standard phrase of Derek „Del Boy“ Trotter, one of the three shady-looking characters, is one of our new co-worker’s favourite quotes: “This time next year…” We look forward to seeing what Miloš and his colleagues can achieve in the next 12 months in terms of tangible improvements for TSCNET customers and the European power transmission grid. “Only Fools and Horses” again comes with a suitable quote that became commonly used: “He who dares, wins!” – for this maxim also applies to completely serious and righteous undertakings.
