From the very beginning, the Triple Jump Group has been distributing and presenting global brands on the markets of the former Yugoslavia and Hungary, and in recent years has achieved success in the field of real estate and hoteliery
A new wave of managers at Triple Jump Group consists of young people who have been employed as interns in the last ten years. Together with experienced team members and specialists who arrived from other companies, they are the future of our company, says Sonja Todorović.
Triple Jump operates in the fields of sports, fashion, cosmetics, hoteliery and real estate. Do you see this diversity as an exacerbating circumstance, as a challenge or as an inspiration?
Each company has its own basic identity, and for Triple Jump Group it is the distribution and presentation of global brands on the markets we cover – the territories of the entire former Yugoslavia and Hungary. We learn a lot from our partners: The Body Shop, Converse, Lindex, Arena, MAX & Co … and that is perhaps the most inspiring part of our business.
Hoteliery and real estate are a “forced” diversification as a result of many years of work and capital accumulation. This is common for companies or people who have been in business for more than fifteen or twenty years, and makes a good addition to the general business and image of the company. Diversity is a challenge because it means entering new programmes, but it is also an inspiration for those who are not afraid to enter new areas of business. A real example of this is our Jump Inn hotel, another is the field of digitalisation, an integral part of current and future business choices.

The strength of your company lies in managers whose potential your father recognised at the beginning of their careers. Do you treat new talents in a similar way?
I met today’s experienced experts and managers when I was an intern. They were recognised at the beginning of their careers as promising young people. I enjoy working with them and they strongly support the company’s goal of providing young beginners with space for personal development and identifying talents who can contribute to the further development of the company tomorrow.
That is why today’s “new wave” of leaders are young people who have been employed as interns at Triple Jump Group in the last ten years, but at the same time we have good examples of specialists who had previous experience in other companies.
In your company, women have always been able to hold responsible positions. Are you proud of this as a brilliant example to others and a strong contribution to the development of the economy and society?
The growing participation of women as those responsible for the most important tasks has been alive in our firm for a long time. With such a structure, it is easier to raise awareness towards faster acceptance of other important values that contribute to the development of society. I mean a contribution to environmental protection, the fight against violence, participation in humanitarian activities, and in cooperation with institutional leaders striving to accept such socially responsible behaviour, such as UNICEF, the Safe House, the Oncological Institute…
We are proud to have “involved” our employees and customers, with whom we can contribute to developing of awareness of socially responsible behaviour. In our company you can really feel the support and satisfaction of all team members because we are so active in this area.
