New head of audit services at EY Hungary


Zsolt Kónya became EY Hungary's new head of audit services on July 1, the company told the Budapest Business Journal.

With nearly 20 years of professional experience, Kónya started his career at EY, where he built up the financial advisory business within the accounting practice in 2017, drawing on his extensive experience in the industry and the knowledge base available within the consultancy.

As head of audit services, his first step will be to develop an operating model that will allow staff to develop faster than ever before and support the firm's clients even more effectively.
"Last year, EY's audit team had the most successful year in EY's domestic history. With Zsolt, a leader who has already proven his ability to take the business to new heights takes the helm. His expertise and experience will ensure that we continue to serve our clients, whether they are successful domestic companies, entrepreneurs or multinationals, to the highest possible standards. I congratulate Zsolt on his appointment," said Botond Rencz, CSE central cluster and Hungary tax leader at EY.
Kónya himself commented, "Our profession is undergoing a major transformation. I see it as my personal mission to ensure the long-term success of the business, which is based on the satisfaction of our clients and employees. The company's commitment to investing more than USD 1 billion in the next 4 years in next-generation audit technologies worldwide and to implementing a unique operating model that will provide our colleagues with more dynamic development opportunities than ever before, is a testament to our commitment to our clients' satisfaction and to their success."

Kónya's predecessor, Zsuzsanna Bartha, will remain at EY, and will focus on the capital markets, looking to further develop the consultancy's client base.
