Mátyás Dobó to become Vodafone Hungary's business unit director
Mátyás Dobó is set to become the new director of Vodafone Hungary's business unit, taking over from István Király on February 1, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
Király became the director of the telco company's business unit in 2014. He will leave Vodafone altogether on March 31.
During the more than six years he spent at Vodafone, Király worked on projects such as setting up the structure of Vodafone's fixed-line communications portfolio for corporate customers, the deployment of the ever-spreading business IoT services nationwide, and the launch of Vodafone Business brand - formerly known as Ready Business - which supports the digitalization of businesses. In addition to the above, Király also played a key role in the Vodafone-UPC integration, and Vodafone introduced the 5G private network and NB-IoT technologies under his leadership.
As part of the planned succession, Dobó will replace Király next month. The expert was previously responsible for Apple's CCEE B2B business unit before joining Vodafone on November 30, 2020.
He has over 16 years of experience in the digital technology field, having started his career by building his own startup company, before joining Magyar Telekom in 2013. He later worked for Deutsche Telekom, Invitech, and Apple, gaining expertise in sales, marketing, and business development management. The specialist holds proficiency in the introduction and implementation of design-based and agile methodologies in large corporate environments, alongside with the management of person- and customer-focused teams.
He has a special interest and experience in the field of IoT solutions and in the strategic development and implementation of digital transformation, according to the press release.
