4iG Makes ‘Strategic Transformation’ Appointments


István Király

The listed IT group 4iG, which has a portfolio covering domestic and international markets, says it has begun the strategic transformation and integration of its telecommunication companies. The goal is for the companies to make more efficient use of the cooperation opportunities within the group and the synergies arising from business operations.

István Király assumed the position of CEO of Antenna Hungária Zrt., which combines the telecommunications portfolio of 4iG Nyrt., from July 1. As the top manager of the business, he will coordinate business processes, improve the effectiveness of the group by exploiting operational synergies, and define the joint development and business strategy of the telecoms companies.

Király was described by the 4iG as “one of the most outstanding managers of the domestic telecommunications market” with deep industry expertise. He previously worked in high-profile positions at Magyar Telekom, Vodafone, and Digi Hungary. He also played a crucial role in managing four large-scale mergers in the Hungarian ICT market and the integration that followed them.

Róbert Budafoki

Róbert Budafoki, who has outstanding international experience, took over the management of the foreign subsidiaries of the telecoms business branch and was appointed the top manager of 4iG International, a new organizational unit established within 4iG with its headquarters in Tirana, Albania.

Budafoki will be responsible for the operation and development of the Montenegrin mobile service provider ONE Crna Gora and two Albanian telecommunications subsidiaries: One Telecommunications, and ALBtelecom. His first task will be to oversee the integration and unification of the two Albanian subsidiaries under one brand name.

Tamás Tábori

The management of Digi Telecommunication and Service Provider Kft. and its subsidiaries (Invitel Zrt., Digi Infrastructura Zrt. and i-TV Zrt.) will be taken over by Tamás Tábori, who has experience in organizational integration and the introduction of agile operations. The board of 4iG expects Tábori to increase the efficiency of business operations, develop the services of the DIGI group, and prepare the company for integration.

Csaba Bőthe

Finally, Csaba Bőthe, as the new general manager of Invitech, takes over the duties of Gerald Grace, who is stepping down from his role as the head of the company. Bőthe, who has three decades of professional experience, joins the company from Yettel, although he previously managed 4iG’s marketing and business support areas between 2018-2019. In his new role, he will support the integration processes, increase the business efficiency of individual subsidiaries, and establish the conditions for effective market operations.
