Deloitte is the company that shaped me as a professional and I always felt there was more to offer on both sides.
I am proud I returned “home” in 2020, privileged to serve with you and promise to spare no efforts in further developing our center.
We will build on the existing RADC practice in Romania, in alignment with our strategy for growing the Center to the next level and match the expected increase in demand driven by the global audit transformation program.
2 years ago, I moved to Bucharest to start-up the French operations at RADC. Contributing to the rapid and sustainable growth of the Center is truly a great challenge and amazing professional experience, may it be for our Team Members, Team Leaders and for the Management Team. The two topics I like to work the most on are Talent Management, and Continuous Improvement. Talent Management since it is key to ensure the success of our Teams and drive great work quality, and Continuous Improvement as it is vital to ensure our ways of working and systems support truly our rapid growth.
Before joining the RADC in September 2020, I was working in the Frankfurt Office in Germany in audit for over 18 years.
Already in the first weeks I got a deep insight into the work and processes in the RADC as well as the planned projects. This is especially due to the good exchange with my team leaders and team members but also with the senior team leaders of the other member firms.
I am looking forward to exciting challenges and new tasks in an international environment and an interesting time at the RADC, especially on the development and expansion of our services for the Member Firms.
Looking back at 2017 when I first joined the Delivery Centers to set up the maiden team for the Middle East servicing just one country then; facing countless challenges both Onshore (Behavioral change, Demand growth, Technology adoption, and most importantly building the “trust” to send work offshore), and at the center (attaining and retaining the right talent, steadily embracing the language and cultural differences, and striving to consistently maintain the quality on all deliverables), we now have grown into numerous teams of dynamic people and personalities attending up to seven countries in the Middle East (and counting...), with our very first hires still part of the team proving that we can overcome any amount of challenges if we steer our path with teamwork, commitment, right values, and mindset.
With a combined experience of 10 years managing Audits and Delivery Centers, I am currently stationed full time out of the Global Center in Bucharest to lead the DME (Deloitte Middle East and Cyprus) RADC teams which certainly is a very unique opportunity that allows my role to be quite versatile. Alongside sustainability and expansion of our operations, I represent and bring together a network of people to participate and lead across upcoming global transformation projects.
I have led the UK ADC team in Rzeszow for almost 2 years before joining the Bucharest team in 2020, where I now lead the UK team in both centres. I have been in audit for 11 years so I still have an audit client that I work for 6 months in the year, combined with leading the centers. People wonder how I do it. Thanks to a great group of team leaders and team members who show incredible commitment to their roles and the centres!
I have joined Deloitte in January 2011 as a consultant and in September 2017 I decided to make a change in my career and join the RADC team. Since then, I manage the Central Europe teams in RADC and one team in Rzeszow, Poland. In September 2020 I have taken a new challenge to lead the new established Quality Function in RADC with the aim to increase and improve the Deloitte system of quality management. I have significant experience in audit for clients in Romania in manufacturing industry, automotive, healthcare, retail, construction and real-estate and I am looking forward to improving new skills in the roles I have in RADC.

Strong Quality Assurance Professional with a master's degree - International Business Management focused on International Relations and Affairs.
When joining our firm as an intern in 2016, our colleague, Alexandru Frusina, found a culture of diversity and inclusion that allowed him to bring his truest self to work. Five years later, Alex is now HR Business Partner in the Regional Audit Delivery Center and still enjoys every day an environment which encourages people to be authentic.
The moment I have joined Deloitte Regional Audit Delivery Center, the Team was less than 10 people and since that moment up to now, RADC has become my Family. Now I am coordinating the Recruitment Team and also matters regarding Employer Branding, Retention and Employees Relations. I believe there is nothing that we cannot do when working together and supporting each other. Whenever you can my advice would be to be curious to one another, share a nice word or a smile. This is the culture we are all building in Deloitte!
Making an impact that matters is not only a catchy phrase that we use. Rather, we're actively looking for ways in which to make a defined impact, to leave a substantial mark, and see projects that generate societal change through to their implementation.
The Socializer is our take on making such an impact, our way of bringing together ideas and laying them out in a more concrete, applicable manner.
We are encouraging our colleagues to be the initiators of change. Everyone is invited to join The Socializer, which will facilitate their ideas to take shape, while also overseeing other initiatives
The Socializer activities will materialize in the form of group projects through which our colleagues can rely on the help of other people with the same social motives. They can also take advantage of the cross-teams collaboration, and form meaningful connections with people they haven't seen on a daily basis, while also enabling interaction with RADC senior management, who overview the projects.
