1. When and where did you first hear about Hunnect?
It was in 2006 when I was working as a fresh graduate in my aunt’s accountancy firm. She was the accountant of the company, which had 4 employees at that time. I met Sándor for the first time in December 2006, when he was looking for a colleague to help him with financial tasks. That is how I came to Hunnect in February 2007, while also helping with the company’s accounting.
2. What are your first memories of the company?
When I started working here, I knew everyone’s name, age and where they came from. I spent my first few days putting names to faces and getting to know the people behind them. There were five of us in a small, quiet office overlooking the street. It was very cozy and I immediately liked the atmosphere. At the same time, it was already a very professional and well-organized team, where everyone knew their job and did it well. I really liked it and was happy to be a part of it.
3. You studied economics and business development at university – later you became a financial manager at Hunnect. Is this a field that has always interested you?
The world of finance has always attracted me. In primary school, I loved maths and languages. The latter led me to study tourism first, but I quickly realized that it was not my cup of tea. Finance was more appealing to me and I realized that this was what I wanted to do.
4. What is your most remarkable memory of the company?
What I love the most to this day are the team building events – they are the most memorable. Luckily, we have had a lot of them. These are the occasions when you really get to know your colleagues: what kind of people they really are and what they think about life.
5. Last year you were promoted to the position of Deputy Managing Director for Finance. What do you think it takes to be a good manager?
It was a great honor to be offered this position by Sándor. I have learned a lot from him over the last 16 years. I have seen a micro-business grow into a company with 23 employees. In order to become a good manager, I think it is important to know the people that you are working with, and to be aware of their professional skills and their personal traits. In my opinion, a good manager listens and tries to understand their colleagues and lets them make their own decisions.
6. How do you see the future of our industry?
You can read a lot about the future of the industry: how artificial intelligence and these new technologies will reduce the need for “pure” translation. However, I think there will still be a need for our industry as long as people are working and processing data.
7. What do you like to do in your free time, and who do you spend it with?
I spend most of my free time with my family. In 2022 we moved from Szeged to the foothills of the Bakony Mountains, so we don’t have to make long journeys to go hiking in the hills or mountains. Being around nature is vital for me – it gives me strength and calms me down. I also like Indian culture. In 2010, I started learning a classical Indian dance called Bharatanatyam, which is not only a dance, but a tradition, spirituality and philosophy thousands of years old. Along with the dance, I also started to learn about Indian culture – I am fascinated by Vedic mythology and philosophy.
