Shell Hungary, which represents an international energy company Royal Dutch Shell on the Hungarian market, announced the appointment of Andrea Istenesné Solti as its new country chair, the highest country representative of the parent company in Hungary.
She has been fulfilling her role since the beginning of January 2020.
