Petr Bendl (born January 24, 1966 in Kladno) is a Czech politician, who served as Minister of Agriculture from October 2011 to July 2013 in Cabinet of Prime Minister Petr Nečas and briefly as Minister of Transport under leadership of Prime Minister Mirek Topolánek. Bendl is a former governor of the Central Bohemian Region after serving two terms. He has been Member of Parliament (MP) for Central Bohemian Region since 2010.
Bendl is a graduate at Engineering and Textile University in Liberec. After a short spell as firefighter, he worked as director of Kladno district office and municipal office’s departments.
Bendl was also vice-president of the Union of Cities and Municipalities of the Czech Republic in 1997–1998.
In 1998 he was elected into the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Republic (resigned in 2001 due to his regional career) as well into the Kladno assembly and was thus replaced by Milan Volf as the new Kladno mayor, staying only in the city council until 2000.
