Gergely Kitta

Head of Strategy and Communication, Climate Policy Institute

I completed my studies at Pázmány Péter Catholic University with a master's degree in English and communication, where I specialized in institutional communication and public relations. I started my career as a business journalist at newspapers and communication agencies. In the mid-2000s, I joined the Századvég Foundation, where I spent nearly ten years - as a communication expert, researcher, and later as the director of the Századvég Media Workshop. At this stage of my life, I had the opportunity to deal with both theoretical and practical approaches to communication. I published, I developed the communication of politicians and organizations, but we supported the strategic communication of large companies with research and consulting, such as Tesco, British American Tobacco or Magyar Telekom. After that, I continued my career as the manager responsible for strategic communication at Magyar Fejlsztési Bank Zrt., and then as chief political advisor to the Prime Minister's Office. In the latter position, he is responsible for coordinating the corporate communications of Budapest Bank, Magyar Posta, savings cooperatives, MFB Group and National Public Utilities, among others. He came to MCC from the National Toll Payment Provider Zrt., where as the director responsible for strategic and government relations I also managed the area responsible for communications. He is currently responsible for the coordination of the professional activities of the think-tank organizations operating under the auspices of the Mathias Corvinus Collegium, as well as for the strategic coordination of their operations.
