Telenor Hungary has announced its new CEO, Financial Officer, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Corporate Affairs Officer. The mandate of the new leadership team started after Telenor Group recently completed the sale of its Central and Eastern European Assets to PPF Group.

Since then he has gained a broad range of experience in finance, telecommunications and leadership through various positions in O2.
