“I’m happy to take over the management of the company where I started my career 28 years ago and I thank Ionuț for the exceptional results during his term. We live in unprecedented times, which have shown us how vulnerable we are and, especially, how strong we are together. We’ll continue to be with our clients, offering value-added services, with our colleagues, building high-performance and motivated teams, and, last but not least, with the communities in which we live and work”, said Dinu Bumbăcea.
“I’m honored that I’ve had the privilege of leading PwC Romania for six years, during which time our services have grown steadily, we’ve become the leaders on the Romanian consulting market and the company has contributed to the consolidation of the Romanian business environment. I would like to thank the company’s customers for their trust and for the opportunity to add value to their business. I also thank my collaborators and colleagues for their achievements in recent years, but especially for the professionalism, team spirit and dedication they have shown in a period of great challenges”, said Ionuț Simion.
