“I am moving forward with all that I started back then: connecting and empowering national and international creative industry, academic and business players to help boost the global embeddedness and visibility of Hungarian design”, said Réka Matheidesz, MOME’s new CEO appointed as of 1 March 2023.

After exceptional accomplishments as a development policy expert and creative industry entrepreneur, she went on to drive a manifold increase in MOME's tender revenue and projects in less than two years as head of the Tender and Development Directorate newly created for this purpose, and became a widely esteemed and respected leader of the University. 

As CEO, she will oversee the university’s operational and development processes, including financial management, HR policy, tender activities and brand building.

She has received several accolades for her work, including the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and the European Entrepreneur Award. In March 2023, she was named one of the top 50 most influential women in Hungary by Forbes Hungary.
