AutoWallis Strengthens Ranks With Group HR Director
Starting this June, a group HR director will be managing the AutoWallis Group’s human resource management activities. The new position will be filled by Aranka Erdélyi, who has extensive experience in the automotive industry; her tasks include supporting AutoWallis’s organization development.
Among others, the professional will be responsible for providing strategic support to the CEO in organizational issues, continuously keeping the group’s HR strategy up to date, general HR tasks, regional organization development, succession planning, and recruitment.
The creation of the new position and the appointment of the new director was made necessary by the fact that the number of staff employed by AutoWallis Group’s subsidiaries, present in 15 countries in the region, has shown substantial growth due to the acquisitions of recent years, and is now nearing 1,000 employees, the group says.
Erdélyi arrived at AutoWallis from a multinational environment: She worked as the HR manager of Caterpillar Hungary Zrt. since 2021, prior to which she spent 10 years (2011-2020) as the regional HR manager for Central and Eastern Europe and Ukraine at Nissan Sales CEE Kft., and she has also worked in HR in retail and the financial sector.
She obtained her marketing degree from Szent István University in 2000, after which she completed the Human Resources Management training program offered by the Budapest Corvinus University in 2011.
Erdélyi’s professional focus is on developing strategies that can have a significant impact on corporate culture and values and that influence organizational structures as well as motivational and remuneration systems, taking into account the development of both employees and managers, thus supporting both corporate and individual performance and efficiency, AutoWallis tells the BBJ.
