What motivates you to be an AmCham Second Vice President?
I am already actively involved with most of what AmCham is doing in Hungary, and I would like to continue adding value as a board member - by shaping the course of action AmCham will take in Hungary in the coming years. The challenging times with recession, and the ongoing pandemic require re-thinking the way we work. AmCham’s key stakeholders are the member companies. As their – Your! – needs evolve, AmCham needs to evolve as well.
Why do you feel you are qualified? What skills do you bring to the position of Second Vice President?
I am a change agent, with a demonstrated track record of dealing with VUCA – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous environment. I trust we need these skills at the Board - more than ever - to deal with the New Normal.
I represent Lexmark – a privately held, multi-billion international company headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky. Lexmark Competence Center is in Hungary since 2008, and today maintains over 300 high value added positions in Hungary. I am well aware of the challenges and opportunities that most Member Companies would face – this being especially true for the BSC/GBS sector.
I have done well in several countries, cultures, industries, companies and roles – from individual contributor to a leader, and learned how to balance corporate activities with being a father of three. I am a fair public speaker, and my enthusiasm is said to be contagious!
How have you been active in AmCham over the course of the last two years?
For years, I have participated in most AmCham-organized business, educational, and volunteer events, creating opportunities for my colleagues to do so. This includes active in-person volunteer service as a Language Ambassador and Career Ambassador, and first-had contribution to making the Career Ambassador program a realty. I am one of the a founding member of the BSC sector branding task force, and have been a Board Member between 2015-2019. On Board or not - I am a doer, active in in number of diverse topics.
What activity or Committee would you like to participate in?
On top of serving on the Board, I am planning to be highly engaged in the Competitive Workforce PTF, and to continue contributing to the other Policy Task Forces as well. A big part of my attention will be towards helping AmCham, and members, adjusting to the New Reality of the post-COVID, challenging times.
