Roland Kreissig

Novartis Hungária Kft.


What was the main reason you joined Swisscham? When did you join?

I joined Swisscham right after I moved to Hungary as General Manager for Novartis Oncology Division. Swisscham provides us as companies a great platform to promote our contribution as Swiss companies to the local economy but also enables us to build a wide range of professional networks.

Why did you decide to run for a position on the Board?

As Board member of Swisscham, I have the opportunity to shape the agenda and priorities for the year and also to closely interact with senior leaders from other companies which allows for mutual learnings and idea exchange.

What do you expect from the cooperation of our chamber and your company in the future?

In our rapidly changing environment, Swisscham can play a critical role in facilitating the dialogue about key challenges affecting the Swiss companies operating in Hungary with local stakeholders whilst also facilitating the sharing of our ideas and innovation.

What event(s) would you highlight from the history of our joint work?

Swisscham in collabroation with Novartis and Roche organized a very successful Roundtable discussion with political stakeholders from Switzerland and Hungary about the future of healthcare in Hungary. This was an excellent event which fostered the exchange of ideas and best practices across borders.
