Managing Director

Mr. Gábor MIKES - With a strong interest in languages, he first graduated from Eötvös Lóránd University, Hungary, where he earned an M.A. in English Language and Literature. Motivated to gain an international experience, he received the prestigious Kellner Scholarship to study at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut (USA) where he studied Political Science and International Relations. Having gained an in-depth understanding of international politics, he worked for a Hungarian NGO dealing with EU communication campaigns. In the meantime, his focus turned towards online technologies, therefore he decided to work for Ericsson, the Swedish telecom giant. Gábor is particularly interested in growing Arboreus' potential as his knowledge of technology and EU affairs can finally converge!
