Why do you think membership in the American Chamber of Commerce is important for businesses operating in Hungary?
AmCham is the most influential, non-political, independent foreign chamber of commerce in Hungary. AmCham is THE HUB to be, and join forces to lobby the government and network amongst Hungary’s leading companies. AmCham is the only organization which is able to channel messages to the Government, facilitate the collaboration between educational institutions and business entities.
What motivates you to be an AmCham Board Member?
I would be part of it! I’m working for a company which values are standing on the massive pillars of Leading Change, Integrity, Respect for Individual, Excellence and Learning and Sharing, that has a lot of common with AmCham values. Our founder’s words “In a free enterprise, in the community is not just another stakeholder in business but is, in fact, the very purpose of its existence” are still driving us and this motivates me to realize my potential in AmCham Board. It gives me the opportunity to give back to the community and start to educate future generations.
Why do you feel you are qualified? What skills do you bring to the position of Board Member?
Having served large multinational companies in business development and marketing roles I feel I have gained a set of knowledge, skills and experience in Services Industry and Public Sector that makes me ready for Board Member challenges. I believe my long-standing employment and leadership role at TCS, the values that I live with, as well as instinctive willingness to help proves that I’m the right candidate.
Humility and resilience are my driving factors. I’m also said to be energetic and dynamic, these are the additional characteristics that I would bring to AmCham Board.
How have you been active in AmCham over the course of the last two years?
Through my former employers AmCham has been a part of my life since 1998. Since then partnered Tax conferences with Andersen and Ernst and Young, participated in several Business Forums, conferences and other events for many years. In the past couple of years I’m active member of the Investment Task force. We are supporting Career and Language Ambassador Programs and shared not only the success but the hard prep works with AmCham staff. We are member of Talent and Digital task forces. I’m proud of the activities that I’ve been doing together with hundreds of other company volunteers to “make it happen” for the protégées of the AmCham Foundation.
What activity or Committee would you like to participate in?
I’d be honored to participate in the activities of the organization, thus contributing to the improvement of the business environment of Hungary. Working in the Shared Services Sector that attracts more than 40 thousand employees and almost 100 companies in Hungary I would contribute to the community and support the growth of the sector by sharing best practices and facilitate the collaboration between stakeholders. Representing a truly global company, where Corporate Sustainability and Diversity are at strategic importance, I believe I could contribute to AmCham’s activities in Diversity, Charity and Woman excellence.
