New Expat Managing Director at OMV Hungary
Ján Hrivňák took over as managing director and head of the retail division of OMV Hungária Kft. this month, the company tells the Budapest Business Journal.

Hrivňák has been working for OMV for about 10 years, before his appointment as managing director, he headed OMV's regional card business.

His predecessor, Tibor Balogh, will continue his career as a company director within OMV Hungária.

The Slovakian-born specialist will be responsible for the operation of OMV Hungária Kft.'s 203 filling stations in Hungary. Hrivňák holds a master's degree in strategic management from Comenius University in Bratislava and is fluent in Hungarian.

After his university years, he built his career first at IBM and then at Holcim Group. In these companies, he mainly held positions in sales, logistics, and supply chain management.

At Holcim, he achieved success first as a procurement specialist responsible for four countries and later as a category manager covering ten countries.

Initially, he held managerial positions in OMV's Czech, Slovak, and Hungarian subsidiaries, before becoming regional sales manager for fuel cards.

"I am looking forward to the challenge of leading OMV Hungária, a company that plays a key role in Hungary's mobility. In line with the company's renewed image, I will do my utmost to ensure that OMV Hungária becomes an indispensable player in Hungary in the promotion of sustainable mobility, in line with the international corporate strategy," said Hrivňák.
