New managing director at the helm of Wolt Hungary


László Sabjányi

Wolt Hungary has made a management change: as of mid-September, László Sabjányi will be the company's managing director, while his predecessor, Ákos Tajta will continue as managing director for the Central European region and the Baltic States, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

Sabjány has more than 15 years of senior management experience. He holds a PhD in Economics from the Corvinus University of Budapest and an MBA from the renowned Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

After 14 years in London in senior positions in technology and consulting firms, he moved to Budapest in 2010 as director of strategy and retail at Vodafone. In 2012, he joined Boston Consulting Group, where he led business transformation projects in the telecom and technology sectors across Europe and Asia. In 2015, he was appointed global sales director for the Amsterdam-based VEON Group, one of the world's largest telecom operators, where he was responsible for markets in 12 countries, including their digital transformation. 

"I am honored to work for one of the world's most successful digital firms. I'm stepping into big shoes, as my predecessor, Ákos Tajta, has built one of Hungary's largest food delivery companies over the past three years, almost everyone knows the blue Wolt logo, so it's a big challenge to continue this success story. At the same time, Ákos will remain with the company as regional manager, and we will work closely together, so the transition will be seamless. The team has fantastic momentum, nothing is impossible for them and I am very happy to be part of their continued success," said Sabjányi about his new role.

Talking about his successor, Tajta noted, "We have had a very intense three years, from an initial team of 8-10 people to over 200 in Hungary - not including courier partners. I am delighted that we have found a new Hungarian managing director in Laci, as the professional background and experience he brings with him will lay the foundations for further success in the years to come."
