Why do you think membership in the American Chamber of Commerce is important for businesses operating in Hungary?

AmCham is the most active foreign Chamber of Commerce in Hungary. It is the logical choice not only for all American companies, but also to any other company in Hungary. Regardless of size, nationality or ownership structure – members can benefit from the wealth of knowledge that is accumulated in the organization, and to tap into the outstanding networking opportunities AmCham presents.

What motivates you to be an AmCham Board Member?

I am already part of what AmCham is doing in Hungary, and 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 successful dialogue between AmCham and the government resulted in multiple legislation and policy changes that favoured the membership – and we need to continue on this part in order to improve Hungary’s competitiveness. Another topic that I strongly care about is the education and knowledge sharing. We shall continue ongoing success stories like the Career Ambassador, as well as expand the portfolio!

Why do you feel you are qualified? What skills do you bring to the position of Board Member?

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 SSC sector.

I myself 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 and create opportunities for my colleagues to do so - including active volunteer service as a Language Ambassador and Career Ambassador. I am Board Member since 2015, and on top of the board duties work in a number of policy task forces.

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 Talent PTF, and to continue contributing to the other Policy Task Forces as well.
