Igor Kadunc, acting director

Igor Kadunc completed his studies at the Economics Faculty in 1974. Twelve years later, in 1986, he became a manager for the first time and subsequently held leading positions at multiple companies and institutions. His first foray into media was between 1996 and 2001, when he was assistant general manager at RTV Slovenija in charge of business operations, a role as part of which he actively participated in resolving the public broadcaster's troublesome financial situation. This experience was the springboard for his stint as general manager of RTV Slovenija between 2017 and 2021. On 18 October 2021 he was picked by the supervisory board of the STA as director for a five-year term, starting as acting director on 31 October and proceeding to a fully-fledged role on 1 January 2022. From the beginning of his career he has been keenly aware of the importance of training (for himself and for the staff). He has completed the President MBA at the IEDC - Bled School of Management and other courses, and also lectured at multiple institutions on topics such as banking, finance, controlling, entrepreneurship and governance.
