János K. Illéssy

Professor, PhD, MBA, MSc

Within the context of the IBR’s master programmes Janos invests himself in equipping executives with tools that they can apply in practice. Having served on numerous boards of directors and supervisory boards of leading European companies in the telecom, banking, and engineering sector, he is aware of how important it is to not only know about finance, but to be able to apply financial know-how as a non-financial executive.

Currently Janos serves as Independent Member of the Supervisory Board of Magyar Telekom Telecommunications Public Limited Company. He is also managing director of his own venture Lebona Kft. and CFO of the Hungarian SME and trading company Ventil.

"I enjoyed most the practical approach used by Prof Illessy throughout the financial management residential period, everything about the course was exciting and it was a great experience that we started to simulate TARI in real life business situations. Thank you Prof Illessy"
