The Importance of People and Systems in Treasury with Janko Hahn


About this episode

It’s not often you find someone in Treasury with a passion for systems and a talent for people management. But this is exactly the breadth of experience my latest guest has acquired during his career in Treasury. Janko Hahn, Head of Treasury Operations at Autoneum Management AG, joins me on this week’s episode of the Treasury Career Corner. After completing his studies of Economics at the University of Augsburg, Germany in 2005, Janko held a variety of Treasury roles. In 2010, he was hired as Treasury Manager for Rieter Management AG. He then transitioned to the newly founded Autoneum Group Treasury Department when the Reiter Automotive Division separated and was listed independently on the Swiss Stock Exchange in May 2011. Today, Janko is the Head of Treasury Operations at Autoneum Management AG in Winterthur, Switzerland. Autoneum Management is a global leader in acoustic and thermal insulation products for the automotive industry. It develops and produces multifunctional, lightweight components and systems for interior floor and engine bay as well as the underbody of cars.
