HB Reavis, an international workspace provider, will welcome a new CEO to Budapest, Robert Kubinsky, effective from the first day of 2020.
In his new role, he will benefit from his vast experience at HB Reavis. Along with a solid development pipeline and a strong local team of nearly 70 professionals, he will work closely on launching the second phase of the urban-scale project Agora Budapest.
To assure continuity, Jan Hubner, who is stepping down from his CEO role in Hungary after the agreed tenure of 3 years, will smoothly transfer the agenda to his successor in the upcoming period until the Agora Tower and Agora Hub are in the final delivery stage.
Robert Kubinsky’s history with HB Reavis goes back 8 years to when he joined the company as a Head of Operating Finance, when he was in charge of the HB Reavis Group’s planning & controlling as well as cash flow management, accounting and IFRS consolidation.
Two years ago, he became the Group HR Director and began focusing on people leadership program development, the development of HB Reavis Academy, talent management and the adoption of a new compensation scheme across all countries. Combining soft and hard skills gained directly at HB Reavis gives him useful insights into the challenges that the CEO role might bring his way.
Before joining HB Reavis, his 15 years of experience came from working in finance management for multiple sound finance institutions, e.g., the Intesa Sanpaolo Group and the Societe Generale Group. As a Head of Planning and Controlling and the CFO of the VUB Generali pension fund, he oversaw financial strategy implementation, the coordination of planning and the controlling of companies within the groups.
Jan Hübner has played a fundamental role in developing and leading the sustainability policies and green building standards at HB Reavis. Under his leadership the local operation has tripled its number of employees and was recognised as the “Real Estate Employer of the Year” by CIJ last year. He has spent 3 of his total 10 years at HB Reavis as the CEO for Hungary. He has decided to take a well-deserved break to rebalance, and he will stay involved until Agora Tower and Agora Hub reach the final delivery stage in 2020.
