Leading the country’s operations for a strong and trustful company such as Atenor is an important step in everyone’s career. I want to congratulate Viorel on his new role and thank him for being a valuable part of the CBRE team over all these years. His appointment proves once again that CBRE is undisputable a “leaders crafting factory” and I am pleased to see him joining other former CBRE colleagues who now are in top management positions in leading companies and are imposing their own views on the Romanian real estate market.”, stated Răzvan Iorgu, Managing Director CBRE România.
