On 21 March 2013, Japan Consulting Office launched a new branch in Budapest, Hungary. The new office will be headed by the former Ambassador of Hungary to Japan, Dr. Zoltan Sudy. With a diplomatic and commercial career, Dr. Sudy has a deep knowledge of working with the Japanese that compliments JCO’s core business. Working with Dr. Sudy and taking on the day-to-day management of the JCO Hungary office, will be Anna Papai-Vonderviszt. Ms. Papai-Vonderviszt has lived in Japan for more than 6 years and has worked with many major Japanese companies in a consulting role.
“I am very impressed by the extensive experience of Dr. Sudy and Ms. Papai-Vonderviszt. I know their many strengths will enhance the knowledge and awareness of Japanese business culture in our network. Together, I’m certain they will be enthusiastic advocates for Japan Consulting Office in Hungary. I am excited to see how this very dynamic team will respond to the needs of Japanese companies and local businesses working with Japan in Hungary,” said JCO founder and managing director Olivier Van Beneden.
