Why do you think membership in the American Chamber of Commerce is important for businesses operating in Hungary?
AmCham denotes for me the highway entry that all businesses in Hungary should use to gain traction in the marketplace. The proven track record of effectively representing the members’ interests, a high visibility and its unparalleled knowledge-base are the best indicators and binding pledges for AmCham
to be a true flagship organization of the Hungarian economic and social landscape. AmCham is for me the most valuable platform to connect, to serve, to engage and get engaged in furthering its mission to raise the country’s competitiveness and thus, to shape its future.
What motivates you to be an AmCham Supervisory Board Member?
I have been practicing law for over 20 years, serving large corporations and mid-sized companies alike. In addition, I have always been committed to programs with special social responsibility. Being part of the leadership of voluntary organizations, such as local and global alumni associations, chambers and charity foundations strengthened my conviction about the importance of a protecting, overseeing body to help safeguarding the organizations’ abidance by their own by-laws, by the ever-changing regulatory frameworks and by their well-established internal principles. I hope that my legal background and longstanding management experience makes me a valuable candidate for the position.
Why do you feel you are qualified? What skills do you bring to the Supervisory Board?
Since 2000 AmCham has been a natural part of my life. From the beginning, I have been an active member of the Regulatory Committee. In earlier years I also had the privilege to lead the Membership Committee and act as Jury Chair of the Women of Excellence Award. Beyond that, during my longstanding engagement I have been involved in the organization and coordination of a wide variety of AmCham programs, from seminars, position papers and social events to the strategy building of the Policy Task Forces. To my distinct honor, for altogether 8 years I was elected to serve as Member of AmCham’s Board of Governors, whereas during the last 4 years I acted as 2nd Vice President of the Chamber. I trust that during the 18 years of my AmCham affiliation and dedication I have become well equipped – both by expertise and by experience – to oversee, to the extent required by law, the affairs and operation of AmCham.
How have you been active in AmCham over the course of the last two years?
During the last two years I had the true privilege to represent AmCham’s interest as its 2nd Vice
President. In this function, both in the Executive Committee and on the Board of Governors I had the
entrusted duty and simultaneous pleasure to play an active role in shaping the strategy and contributing
to the daily operation of the Chamber. The close cooperation with AmCham fellows and the possibility
to work for the realization of valuable initiatives of members has been my constant source of motivation
and strengthened my dedication to the mission and values AmCham stands for. The Supervisory Board
Membership would grant me the opportunity to continue serving AmCham in a valuable different role
and to contribute with the best of my professional knowledge for the benefit of the members.
