Geza Kadar, Jr. was born in a Swiss refugee camp to Hungarian parents fleeing from the communist takeover of Hungary in 1947. The Kadar family emigrated first to Melbourne, Australia and in 1958 settled in California.
Mr. Kadar earned his degree in international relations at UC Berkeley and his Juris Doctorate from Georgetown in Washington D.C. After working for a Congressman, he served as an attorney and federal lobbyist for the health insurance industry until 1990. After returning to California, he led the health law practice of a large law firm and then created a physician management firm, Advocates for Primary Care, Inc. Although he made many trips to Hungary, it was the highly emotional experience of standing with lit candle in front of the Hungarian Parliament in 1989 when the creation of the new Republic of Hungary was publicly declared, that galvanized his desire to be of service to the homeland. He is a founding board member of the Coalition.
