Born in Budapest, Akos spent six years in a local salon before relocating to Dallas, USA where he realised his dream of working under Anthony Mascolo. In 2004, when TIGI became a stand-alone company, Anthony Mascolo invited Akos to move to London to help to build the TIGI International Creative Team. His role quickly became focused on TIGI Education materials and Academy operations. Since then, his involvement has deepened to include all TIGI creative projects, from Educational Collections to advertising campaigns, as well as planning and executing shows and seminars around the world. Behind the scenes, Akos works tirelessly with TIGI R&D to ensure TIGI’s reputation for cutting edge product innovation remains second to none. Akos leads the team of TIGI mentors who each year train the highly respected TIGI Inspirational Youth Team.
