István Herczeg

COO - Fornetti Group

I joined Fornetti because I received the proposal in a period of my life when I was open and ready for challenges given by a new company and new environment.

I do believe that the company can benefit from my experience and knowledge and with my new team we can contribute to the ongoing successful operations of Fornetti.

I completed my Food Engineer and Quality Control Engineer degree at the Szeged College for Food Industry. For 18 years I was working for Sole-Mizo in various areas of the operations, and left that company as the deputy CEO.
