Austrian lawyer Josef Holzschuster will be relocating from Budapest to Amsterdam, having been appointed Head of Legal, Markets DA at Philips, in which capacity he will lead the worldwide Legal Team for the Philips Domestic Appliances business, reporting to the General Counsel for DA, also located in Amsterdam.

Holzschuster has been in Budapest since 2018 when he was appointed Country Manager for Hungary at Phillips (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on September 11, 2018). He had relocated to the Hungarian capital from Prague, where he joined Phillips in 2014 as its Head of Legal Affairs for CEE (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on September 25, 2014).

Prior to joining Phillips, he was based in Vienna as Director of Legal Affairs for CEE at HP, Head of Legal and Regulatory at UTA Telekom AG (now Tele2), Head of Legal at ASFINAG, and Senior Corporate Counsel at Connect Austria. From July 2013 to September 2014 he also ran his own business and management consulting & coaching firm.

Holzschuster was a keynote speaker at the 2016 CEE GC Summit in Istanbul. His essay, "Do Everything With Nothing," on managing an in-house team when faced with budget pressure, was included in CEE Legal Matters' 2017 Corporate Counsel Handbook, and participated in this year's CEE Legal Matters Annual Expert Round Table (a transcript of which was published in Issue 8.1 of the CEE Legal Matters magazine).

Holzschuster received his Magister Juris and his Master’s degree in Legal Information Technology from the Karl Franzens University in Graz in 1994.
