Q1. What describes you best: The Leader, The Manager, The Achiever and how did your academic and professional background enabled your leading skills?

TB: Right now, I would say the manager is the professional model that fits me best. To a great extent, my academic education and my training helped me get to where I am today; working with people and for people, I have come to realize that my role is not just a job, but a vocation; I can make a difference and help people by caring for and respecting their needs, and coach them with their careers and how to better utilize their qualities and competences, how to "shine their diamonds".

Q2.What would you say it is your personal and professional footprint within the company's evolution?

TB:My mission is to bring within the company change management to support through innovative solutions and processes our future growth both within existing services and new expertise such as KYC, ensuring all synergies to deliver more value and agility to our customers.

Q3. A view on the outsourcing industry context: Which are the strongest and weakest features of local market?

TB: Romanian outsourcing market strongest features are linked to EU membership bringing local legislation in line with Western Europe customers, sustaining outsourcing within EU, the openness of Romanian society to foreign languages and cultures, the high level of education existing among the young generation. On the other hand, the weaknesses are also connected to the people and limited resources on the labor market in certain technical areas such as IT. I would encourage the Authorities to develop strategic national education planning, sustain the professional reconversion options and national mobility of the work force.
