Gál Katalin

Vince Kiadó Kft

 

My name is Katalin Gal and I am the co-founder, co-owner (together with my two children) and managing director of Vince Books, a publishing house based in Budapest.

 

Things did not start out this way. I had studied psychology at the university and worked as a clinical psychologist for more than 20 years, teaching at the Semmelweis Medical University, practicing at the university’s Clinique of Pediatrics and Pulmonology, and also as a private practitioner. During this period, I also participated as a system analyst in the computerization of the Hungarian health-care system.

 

Vince Books was established by my husband, Gábor Vince – who had been working in the publishing industry for almost twenty years – and me in 1991. I started participating in the daily work of the company only at the end of the 90’s when my husband became ill, and I took over the company’s management after Gabor‘s death in 2001.

 

To this day, the company has remained fully-owned by our family – me and my daughter Eszter, who is a lawyer and my son György, who is an economist.

 

In the early 1990’s, our various monographs and publications on art, architecture and design filled a gaping market hole in Hungary. Right from the beginning, our ambition has been to create books of exceptional professional quality that are at the same time affordable for the broadest possible audience. Our choices of topics have varied and expanded throughout the years: art, popular science series with internationallly acclaimed authors, gastronomy, etc. – but we continue to place the same importance on quality and flawless work.

 

As an acknowledgment to our dedication to quality, in the year 2005, Vince Books was selected as the Hungarian Publishing House of the Year.

 

We are the exclusive partners of a number of reputable international publishing houses (Taschen, Könemann, etc.). We have an extensive international network that allows us to participate in a number of international co-editions, and also to develop books for the foreign market.

 

In addition to the publishing of books, we are also engaged in importing English and other foreign language books to Hungary.

 

We also participate in the distribution of our titles, not only through our close ties to the distributing companies, but also by maintaining our own network of bookstores.

 

We operate eight bookstores. Three of these feature all types of books, while five offer a special feature.

 

As many as three of our bookstores have merited the prestigious Hermes Prize, an acknowledgment awarded by the Hungarian Ministry of Culture to the bookstores of the highest quality.

 

My interest extends beyond running our company to the overall state of the Hungarian book-publishing industry. I have been elected member of the presidential board and vice-president of the Hungarian Publishers and Booksellers Association, founded in 1795, which is one of the oldest and most prestigius institutions of its kind in Europe. I am also a member of the Intellectual Property Council.

 

The last 3 years have been quite difficult in terms of the economy in general and for the publishing industry in particular. We are facing numerous issues and challenges and we do our best to adopt to the changing times.

 

I am particularly proud that now both of my two children work in the company.

 

Beside my family and work I am passionate about animals: my dog, my 3 tortoises and 8 cats are part of my closest family, just like my 2 grandsons, Benjamin and Jonah. I love travelling and spending time with my family and friends in our country house at the lake Balaton.
