Founder & CEO

I have over 15 years experience with AX and even more in IT. Finished in a programming specific secondary school and already sold 2 business solutions (built in Borland Delphi) as a teenager. I was working while studying and therefore my diploma work for the IT BSc was based on a real project in Navision Axapta 2.5. I have been on the implementation partner and on customer side also. Lived in more places before: Cambridge, Budapest, Dubai and Gent. Recent achievements and personal development:

  • I have recently completed the marathon in less than 4 hours after a preparation of 10 months,
  • Becomame a member of Mensa high IQ society,
  • Obtained my second degree at the MBA program of the University of Miskolc.

D365FO / Dynamics AX Developer

After IT BSc studies worked as system administrator in Windows and Linux environments for 6 years. Always had a good sense of programming so deep dived into AX. As I was sitting next to Peter, I was mentored by a senior developer from the very beginning of my AX career. This way I quickly learned how to write good quality and well-performing code, how to debug and understand complex methods and solve complex issues. In free time become master of Rubik’s cube.
