Sharry Hires New Head of Sales and BDR to Boost Its Global Growth
Sharry, a workplace experience platform around digital employee badges, is excited to welcome Ondřej Vodňanský and Carlos Vazquez to its team. Previously at Spaceflow and Cushman & Wakefield, Ondřej joins Sharry as a new Head of Sales for the EMEA region. Carlos comes on board as a Business Development Representative responsible for managing the North and South American markets.
Ondřej’s main responsibilities as the Head of Sales at Sharry will be supporting new business in the EMEA region, reviewing and improving the various growth channels, and co-creating a go-to-market strategy for the region with Sharry’s management team.
“I am excited that we are joining forces with Sharry as they continue growing their presence in the EMEA region,” said Ondřej Vodňanský, Head of Sales for EMEA. “There are many reasons I was excited about joining the company but most importantly it’s their robust and fully fleshed out solutions that combine two of my passions: impacting how people interact with buildings while also promoting sustainability.”
In his role as a Business Development Representative, Carlos Vazquez will drive Sharry’s expansion in the mobile credentials market and specifically of the Apple Wallet solution. Carlos will also support Sharry’s regional growth by establishing relationships with new and prospective channel partners and clients. He will also ensure that existing customers such as SL Green, Shapack or Urbanova in North and South America receive ongoing support.
“I had already been familiar with Sharry’s work and have observed its global growth from afar and as such I was thrilled when we agreed to work together,” said Carlos Vazquez, Business Development Representative. “I have previous experience in B2B sales, product distribution and customer experience management and I am excited to use my knowledge to support Sharry in its international expansion.”

“I am excited that both Ondřej and Carlos are joining Sharry,” said Josef Šachta, Co-Founder and CEO of Sharry. “Over the years, we have been building a strong presence in the United States and Europe and both of them will be pivotal in our international growth and rapid introduction of the digital employee badges in Apple Wallet thanks to their vast combined experience.”
Sharry’s plug-and-play solution and open API, ready for third-party integrations, perfectly fit the needs of hybrid workstyle and flexible offices even across a property portfolio. This is especially important in post-pandemic times when businesses are establishing new protocols for office attendance. With Sharry, enterprises can provide employees and occupiers with a best-in-class workplace experience through the integration of all office and building systems into one platform.
Based out of Prague, Sharry redefines workplace experience with its platform built around digital employee badges, with Apple Wallet support. Over the past year, Sharry has launched an employee badge in Apple Wallet at 167 Green Street, a multi-tenant office in Chicago. This has been possible thanks to a long-standing collaboration with HID. In fact, Sharry's capabilities and reliability were recently recognized through the company's designation as an Elite Level HID Origo Technology Partner, a premium tier for industry leaders offering innovative and integrated HID Origo solutions. Additionally, in the past year, Sharry delivered its workplace experience platform at office developments in Spain, Belgium, and Peru.
Over the years, Sharry has established itself on the Czech startup scene, this also being supported by the recent inclusion in the 20 most popular Czech Startups (as selected by the magazine CzechCrunch). The brand also continues receiving international accolades for its product in international media outlets such as Forbes Peru, PlaceTech, Security Journal Americas, Verdantix, and more.
