ULLMANN, ADOLPH (1857–1925), Hungarian baron, economist, and member of the Hungarian Upper House. He entered the service of the General Hungarian Credit Bank. In 1885 he was appointed director of the petroleum refinery, a subsidiary of the bank, and in 1909 (after the death of N. Kornfeld) he became the bank's chief executive. Ullmann played a decisive role in the financial activities of the Hungarian government and in establishing factories and industrial enterprises. He was also the president of the national industrial union. His articles on economic problems were published (in German) in the daily Hungarian government newspaper, Pester Lloyd.
