Milan Janković (Serbian Cyrillic: Милан Јанковић, born 23 November 1950 in Veliko Gradište, SFR Yugoslavia now Serbia), most known as Philip Zepter (Serbian: Филип Цептер / Filip Zepter) is an international businessman and entrepreneur of Serbian origin. He is also considered to be one of the richest Serbs in the world with an estimated net worth of $5 billion.[1]

He completed primary school in Kozarska Dubica before graduating from University of Belgrade Faculty of Economics.

At the age of 29, he went to Salzburg following his wife Madlena Zepter (then Madlena Janković) who got a temporary job there and in order to study German, and liked it so much there that he decided to stay.

After he moved to Linz, he founded Zepter International,[2] which has over time grown into a conglomerate focusing on production and sale of high-quality[citation needed] consumer products.

According to Serbian press, he was interested in buying Serbia's famous football club Red Star Belgrade. However, he postponed the purchase because of the financial crisis.
