Special Effects Announces Zsolt Kassai As New General Manager
Special Effects International welcomed the New Year by appointing a new General Manager. Hungary’s prominent 36-year-old event production company takes on new challenges with company restructuring and a more diversified service portfolio.

After 15 years in leadership, company majority owner Peter Muller decided to hand over his position to Zsolt Kassai, former Director of Sales and Marketing. This change involved two other assignments: Judit Kalmar is now Director of Event Sales while Tamas Szego will continue as Director of Conference Sales.

’Structural changes and dynamic growth of the company has became so intense recently that overseeing company leadership and developing the business at the same time weren’t as efficient as necessary anymore.’ – said Peter Muller, ’Director of Possibilities’ as he calls himself now.

’This is one of the reasons I decided to hand over my duties as General Manager to my excellent colleague and dear friend, Zsolt, whom I utterly trust. Last year we had the opportunity to recruit outstanding employees so now I can finally get back to my original tasks and do for what I have passion the most: business development, networking and sales. Of course, I stay on board and continue to support Zsolt and the team.’

Zsolt Kassai was greatly surprised by the decision: ’I’ve been working for Special Effects for 8 years and I was part of the fantastic journey we have accomplished in the past few years. I feel honored to face new challenges in this position and I trust we can continue our work with the same success.

All our achievements are common and just like Peter I very much believe in teamwork and team spirit so all credits go to the people of the company, too.’

Special Effects International enters 2018 with new divisions, wider range of services and nearly 100 employees.
