Igor Prerovsky to Take Over as Yettel Hungary CEO
Igor Prerovsky is expected to step into his position as CEO of telecommunications at Yettel Hungary as of September of this year.
"I'm looking forward to the challenge of managing one of Hungary’s leading telecommunications companies, Yettel Hungary. [...] The possibility of strengthening the Yettel brand with innovative wireless services is beyond exciting,” comments Prerovsky on his new position.
PPF Telecom Group, the majority owner of Yettel Hungary, has announced that Prerovsky will overtake the duties of the CEO of the organization, as well as heading PPF's telecommunications branch.
Prerovsky returns to the PPF group after working at various locations in Europe and the Middle East, focusing on digital business development at Creative Dock Group as a financial manager in the fintech area of telecommunications projects. He also assumed a senior position at Home Credit, PPF Group's global retail finance business, from 2006 to 2009. He managed services in the United States, Vietnam and China.
“It is a pleasure to, once again, be working with my PPF colleagues. Together we can develop various areas at the company based on our expertise, such as telecommunications and digital mobile services,” Prerovsky says.
Prerovsky will succeed Peter Gazik as CEO of Yettel Hungary, who has been maintaining the position since 2021.
“First of all, I would like to thank Peter Gazik for developing Yettel Hungary through creating one of Hungary’s largest 5G networks and introducing home internet and TV service developed into one service provider,” Sharma Balesh, CEO of PPF Telecom Group, notes.
“By appointing a new CEO in place of Peter, it creates an opportunity for PPF to work with Igor once again, who has previously had a successful company with us. This appointment gives the PPF Telecom Group new momentum in its efforts to provide our customers with cutting-edge telecommunications and provide online services,” he explains.
