Tomas Mall

Office & Accountant

Tomas is the heart and the good soul of the company and has been a member of the HELIOS family for many years. Before joining our forces, he had worked in a bank for many years, so he is pretty good with numbers. Today he manages both our companies‘ bureaucratic and administrative matters and is doing all accountancy for our projects. Simply put, he is indispensable.

Nearly nobody knows HELIOS better than him. Perfectly bilingual, he loves film as much as we do, and during his free time, he creates film footage you can find on POND5.
