Founder and Principal

Jonas Puck is a full professor at WU’s Institute for International Business and Vice President of First Vienna FC, Austria’s oldest football club. He is convinced that management and sport can contribute a lot to each other – though his contributions will be off the pitch as his kids are much better players than he ever was.
