New Managing Director at FrieslandCampina Hungary


Ferenc Szecskó took over as managing director at FrieslandCampina Hungary today, the company told the Budapest Business Journal.

“I wish Ferenc Szecskó success with his new job. In him, the Hungarian producers, our trading partners, representatives of the sector and the company's employees can find a partner with a prepared and constructive, innovative approach,” emphasized Péter Szautner, outgoing managing director.

FrieslandCampina Hungary has been a manufacturer of Hungarian products for decades including the Pöttyös and Milli brands.

Szecskó has been a member of FrieslandCampina's management team since 2011. He has previously managed the commercial area of the Hungarian subsidiary, and from October 2019 until now, he also managed the Romanian branch of the subsidiary.

His predecessor, Szautner, took over as the head of FrieslandCampina Hungary in 2013. He has also taken an active role in the work of various organizations, such as the role of vice-president at the Association of Responsible Food Producers (formerly the National Association of Food Processors) and as a board member and co-president of processors of the International Milk Association and Product Council. In recognition of his work, he will continue his career as managing director of the group's subsidiary responsible for the Belgian and French markets from August.

“I congratulate Péter Szautner on his new position and wish him success. Thanks to your expertise, dedicated work and professional team, I am taking over the management of a company with outstanding performance. It is an honor for me to be able to participate in this development, and the related business value creation at the head of a team of professionals,” shared Szecskó.
