Associate partner appointed at Horizon Development

The Horizon Development board is now complete after the appointment of Gabriella Sasvári as associate partner, the company has told the Budapest Business Journal.

Sasvári will retain her current position as development director, which she has held since 2018, the company says. She has been with the company since 2015, initially as senior project manager.

Prior to joining Horizon Development, she worked as project manager of the Ludovika Campus Project Office at the National University of Public Service, served as asset director and managing director of the Károlyi István City Center development, and was the project manager of Építők SC Sports Complex in Népliget.

Her main projects in the private sector included the heritage restoration of Villa Ybl in Buda Castle, as well as the expansion of the CORA hypermarket-chain in Hungary, where she worked as both project manager and partner.

She is currently overseeing multiple projects in the pipeline, including the development of Szervita Square, the heritage restoration of Luxury Lifestyle Hotel (Hold utca 16), and the realization of Luxury Residences Marbella.

“We were in complete agreement about appointing Gabriella Sasvári to the associate partner position of our privately-owned development company, established in 2006," Horizon owners and managing partners Attila Kovács and Balázs Czár remark.

"She is an indispensable part of our board both in terms of managing our ambitious development projects in Hungary and abroad, and shaping the future of our company by setting new goals and directions. We wholeheartedly welcome Gabriella to the Horizon Development board and look forward to reaching new heights with her.”

Sasvári explains: “I saw two main opportunities when I joined the company. On one hand, I was intrigued by the premium projects present only in the Horizon Development portfolio (Eiffel Palace, Váci 1, Promenade Gardens, Szervita Square); on the other hand, I embraced the possibility to evolve professionally by learning from Attila and Balázs, acquire a developer’s perspective, immerse myself in creative thinking, and surround myself with true team spirit. Even though my scope of activities and the projects I work on will remain the same, I see a great challenge in stepping up to the owner level as a partner.”
