Peter Csizmadia-Honigh to leave the Institute
Peter Csizmadia-Honigh is leaving the Institute of Masters of Wine after nine years as its Education Manager.
Csizmadia-Honigh, who joined the IMW in August 2005, has played a pivotal role in transforming the Institute’s study programme in Europe, North America and Australasia. Under his management of the IMW study programme, student numbers have increased by almost 60%, with candidates now coming from 36 countries and bringing the study programme in line with the Institute’s global strategy.
An economist and teacher by training, Peter has introduced a series of initiatives to enhance the self-study programme, and has also developed industry partnerships with generic bodies, research institutions and wine corporations to deliver unique opportunities and benefits to both candidates and Members of the Institute.
“Peter’s contribution over the past nine years has transformed the Institute’s study programme and examination significantly. His tireless work and dedication to development and improvement has benefited our students, Members and the wider IMW community” commented Jean-Michel Valette MW, Chairman of the Institute.
Csizmadia-Honigh is the winner of the 2014 Geoffrey Roberts Award, and is planning to write the first book on the wines of India.
