Csaba Mátyás, the financial manager of Fornax came in first this year in the „Accountant of the Year” national competition. Csaba participated last year as well, and won second prize in 2014.
As a young child Csaba did not dream of a career in accounting, and later in his teen years he was more interested in music. A family anecdote, however, suggests that there were early signs of Csaba going down this path after all. According to the story, Csaba as a young child walked into the living room with two dictionaries on his head, and said „Look, I am balancing the books”.
The hunch turned out to be correct, following his training as a jazz drummer, Csaba enrolled to the College of Finance and Accountancy of the BBS, where he got his degree in 2009 with a „Pro Universitate Juventutis” qualification. He therefore traded his drums and other percussion instruments for the Act on Accountancy and Excel worksheets – to our great joy, as Csaba has been leading the financial team of Fornax for four years.
