    I. ABOUT THE CANDIDATE:

    Citizenship:      Romanian citizen with full-time residence in Romania

    What do you plan to bring along in FIC and how do you see your contribution in the next year should you join the FIC Board?

    My professional experience of over 20 years in national and international tax consultancy, as well as the vision on the business environment gained including due to the status of FIC member board, make me believe that I can continue to contribute to the achievement of the association's objectives regarding the improvement of the business environment in Romania. Given the growing challenges faced by investors in the local market, I am committed to get involved further to help FIC strengthens its advocacy efforts and remain one of the strongest and most reliable platforms for investors. Attracting investments in the economy, including by absorbing the European funds Romania have at its disposal through PNRR, must be the main objective of all the factors involved, and the FIC, through its task forces managed by professionals in all areas of impact in the economy, can contribute achieving this objective. As a member of the board, I would be honored to contribute to the FIC's mission to facilitate this endeavor by sharing my knowledge and expertise, as well as the ones of my expert colleagues in Deloitte, with the other FIC members and with the public authorities in order to create a productive business environment contributing to the development of the Romanian society as a whole.

    Current involvement with the FIC: 

    I had the honour to contribute to this important effort for the past three years by serving on FIC’s Board and, besides this, I have also served as Co-chair of the FIC Taxation Task Force and FIC Financial Instruments Task Force.

    I have been a longstanding member of the Taxation task force and thus participated to FIC’s efforts towards fostering a fiscal regime that can contribute to attracting investments from foreign or local entrepreneurs. In the past I led the FIC-AmCham common working group on Corporate Tax. Together with my colleagues from Deloitte, I have contributed to the important task of making proposals for rewriting the Fiscal Code and the Fiscal Procedure Code. I have also contributed to the CDR task force on Finance & Taxation.

    I benefited from the experience from Deloitte, as one of the leading professional services organization in Romania and worldwide that has always been an active member of the most important business associations and contributed with its in-depth knowledge of markets and industries and its experts in various fields. Our professionals can share best practices in virtually all the sectors of the economy and continue to be an active contributor to FIC’s agenda, through our work as FIC members, in the Board of Directors and in the task forces. We have been doing this since 2009 and we are committed to continue our contribution to the development of the Romanian economy.

    I. ABOUT THE CANDIDATE:

    Length of time resident in Romania: 1.5 years

    What do you plan to bring along in FIC and how do you see your contribution in the next year should you join the FIC Board?

    Throughout my multicultural leadership experience in businesses from both developed and emerging countries I extended experience in the work with Governments, therefore I am committed to contribute to the achievement of FIC objective of promoting a sustainable economic growth by improving Romania's investment landscape and by strengthening the dialogue with Romanian authorities.  

    I represent an industry and hence a company that benefits from a broad understanding of the labor market and public policies implemented with the goal of increasing the quality of life for disadvantaged population, and therefore I can bring to FIC a compelling approach related to the mark we want to leave on the local economy, by addressing a wide range of stakeholders, from EU institutions, public officials, business actors and even vulnerable groups. In all countries where I had a management mandate, (Spain, Philippines, and now Romania and Bulgaria) besides assuring business growth and implementing digital transformation projects, I have been involved in business communities’ coalitions, bringing my contribution and expertise in facilitating dialogue between businesses and decision makers, ultimately in the benefit of local workforce and country socio-economic development.

    I strongly believe that Romania’s business community needs to work together to promote an ethical and transparent business environment and to be a reliable partner of the Government, offering support and guidance in the policy making process. Over the years, foreign investments in Romania marked positively the development of the country in all economical domains, gradually making steps towards becoming the 10th economy of EU and therefore, especially in this period, it is very important for FIC member companies to promote their contribution and help to build a good image of the business community. 

    Current involvement with the FIC: 

    Sodexo Romania is member of FIC since 2003 and supports the activity of the organization by both actively participating in events and taskforces and providing the business community with our knowledge, expertise and network in order to amplify the collective efforts.

I have been a FIC Board member for several years and also served a term as FIC President, so I have detailed knowledge of the FIC’s objectives and current projects.

I am coordinator of the Healthcare Working Group, which works closely with the authorities to promote high quality healthcare in Romania. The group has been particularly active in the last two years as the Romanian health care system has had to respond to the challenges of the pandemic. One of our most important initiatives has been Leaders for Excellence in Healthcare, which has brought together top medical practitioners, government and the private sector to focus their expertise on how best to develop the healthcare system in Romania. We work closely with the Presidency and Ministry of Health on this initiative. I also participate regularly in meetings with the Prime Minister and representatives of the government on behalf of FIC to discuss numerous issues which are of interest to the business community. Furthermore, throughout my time as a Board Member, President and Vice President of FIC, I have encouraged KPMG employees to participate in FIC activities, such as task forces and working groups.

    I. ABOUT THE CANDIDATE:

    Length of time resident in Romania: 2 years and 5 months

    What do you plan to bring along in FIC and how do you see your contribution in the next year should you join the FIC Board?

    As General Manager of a company recognized for its operational success and innovative approach in terms of products, packaging and marketing activities, but also taking into account my financial background, I’m confident of bringing value within FIC, contributing in areas such as Taxation, Environment.

    Taxation is an area impacting the entire business community and more than ever impacting the way the Romanian economy will recover post-COVID pandemic. Thus, consultation between the state authorities and the business community is essential to review both draft legislation and the implementation of existing legislation with the ultimate goal of ensuring clarity, stability and predictability in fiscal legislation as well as in its implementation and interpretation are critical conditions in investment decisions. ANAF reform should continue, to eliminate the practical deficiencies in fiscal administration & to develop the digitization of ANAF’s architecture. Environment is another are where Romania should take extra miles to recover existing gaps and to align to goals of EU Green Deal. Circular economy is a very important topic, where concrete steps should be taken in order to ensure legislative predictability & clarity by creating a uniform and consistent legislative framework, based on EU principles.  Climate change is also high on public agenda, thus it is equally important for the business sector to provide input for the positions taken by the Romanian authorities within the relevant technical groups and public consultations at EU level.

    As GM of the beverage industry leader, I learned to pursue a strong people agenda, focusing on collaboration, talent identification and promotion, honesty, hard-work and dedication. I am confident that these values will prove the core of FIC’s activity moving forward in the post-Covid recovery path and I can share the business, management, and leadership skills I have achieved during my career.

    Current involvement with the FIC:

    FIC Board member and Co-Chair of TF Environment and TF Technology and Digitalization

    Current involvement in FIC takes place at Board’s & task forces’ levels, with active collaboration mainly in Environment, Taxation, EU Funds Task Forces.

Together with other colleagues from FIC we have contributed to position papers on environmental topics (waste management system, environmental permits and visas), EU funding, public policies to restart economic growth and we have also contributed to FIC White Book. We assumed an active role in the debates for the National Resilience and Recovery Plan and proposed concrete actions and projects to favor both business community and authorities.

    OMV Petrom is part of the economic fabric of Romania as one of the largest companies and employers in the country and the largest contributor to the state budget. It has had an incredibly successful transformation that underpins proof of how FDI improves Romania.

    At OMV Petrom, we look to be more than just an energy company by having a regional presence and being a partner for local communities throughout Romania, while also expanding and developing lasting ties with the business environment. In this context, I hope that my leadership and international experience in top management positions can bring a valuable contribution to FIC’s decision making at Board level. And to support the development of FIC’s organizational culture and reputation in its partnership with the Romanian authorities.

    Current involvement with the FIC: 

    FIC Board Member, Co-Chair of FIC Energy Transition Task Force & Sustainable Corporate Governance Task Force

    List of other volunteer board of directors’ positions: 

    Aspen Board of Trustees and United Way Romania
