HUNGARY- Mercer Human Resource Consulting has appointed Juzsef Pour as head of its Hungarian consulting operations. Dr Pour has been managing director of the management consultant Hay Group in Hungary having starting it eleven years ago.

Prior to that, he was director of consulting at the International Management Centre in Budapest, and has also worked as a management consultant with Diebold Group.

Mercers has had a Hungarian office since 1991 which now employs 10 people providing advice on employee benefit and human resource consulting.

“We recruited Juzsef Pour because he is probably the most prominent person in the area of human resource consulting in the Hungarian market,” says Cameron Hannah, European partner and head of Mercer’s Eastern European operation.

Pour will also head up the human resource consulting side of the business, a side that Hannah says they are keen to build up in Hungary.
