András Biczók was appointed CEO of TSCNET shareholder MAVIR, the Hungarian transmission system operator (TSO), with effect from 15 July 2019 after the Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority approved the decision of the company’s supervisory board. He succeeds Kamilla Csomai, who resigned as CEO by mutual agreement at the end of June. Biczók studied in Germany, began his career in the financial sector and has been active in various branches of the international energy industry since 2015. Most recently he was CEO and chairman of the board of directors of the Hungarian company for natural gas storage MMBF Földgáztároló Zártkörűen Működő Részvénytársaság.
The main objective of the new CEO is to continue to guide MAVIR on its way to becoming the leading and most advanced player in the national energy sector. This means that the TSO addresses increasing electricity transport and consumption, decentralised electricity generation from renewable sources and the anticipated developments in energy storage with new approaches. Biczók comments: “While cooperating with the players of the dynamically changing energy market and regulatory authorities in a proactive manner, we have to do our utmost that one of the pillars of the country’s competitiveness, the electricity, shall be constantly and safely available in proper quality and quantity.”
