Senior Project Manager
With over 17 years of experience in IT Project Management and Top Management, I have run several successful projects in various fields, including software application development and digital and IT infrastructure projects using different project methodologies, such as Waterfall, Agile SCRUM, or Prince2. I am familiar with working in a Project Management Office environment and can adapt my approach to suit most projects.
I have a strong work ethic and am very good at coordinating and managing project teams and stakeholders and getting everyone organized and engaged. I don’t mind rolling my sleeves and jumping in to sort out a problem or plug a gap. In teamwork, I look to foster a strong work ethic with all people involved, reflecting well on the projects I manage or am interested in.
I am highly motivated and have excellent team management skills with the ability to organize, motivate and provide leadership for projects and teams.
What do I do
Cristian is a very competent manager and executive, with an excellent view on most (if not all) technologies and trends from today’s digital marketing landscape. He has strong abilities in managing teams and really good negotiation skills. On top of that, he's a very nice person with a professional work ethic. I hope we wilI have the opportunity to work together again.
I worked with Cristi about 10 years ago, he trained and advised me about technical issues at that time. In the past years we have been in touch and advised me every time about technology and technical and security issues. He is a fun guy, helps every time, gives good advice in professional themes, i can relay on him every time!
I had the chance to work with Cristian a few years back while he was responsible with the training and development. His drive for delivering excellent quality training programs and enthusiasm were an inspiration to me in my profession as a trainer. He is highly objective oriented and is very professional in his approach in developing and delivering all projects assigned and is for sure an asset to any company in which he activates
Cristian is a very responsible person that you can rely on everything you agree upon. With know-how in different areas of internet, he is one of the best to manage a high scale project involving different types of resources and stakeholders. Besides this, he always tries to help people with their problems & challenges, which always makes him a teammate you would want by your side.
Cristian is one of the most responsible, loyal and pro-active colleagues I have worked with at Conversion Marketing! Always willing to help his team mates, he would easily share his know-how and technicalities with so much patience to people of different work specialty (like myself too). Cristian is a great example of creativity, collaboration, respect, self-discipline and fun. For a senior tech savvy, I think these qualities are priceless!
Cristian is a great professional and he is always dedicated to his work. He is the kind of professional who always gets the job done, to whom everybody looks up to and who is always there in case you need him. He has a vast knowledge in every aspect of the digital world, from marketing strategies to hands-on programming together with the team he leads. No matter the situation Cristian is the guy you will always want on your team. He is the kind of PM and the kind of leader that we can all aspire to be.
I met Cristian at Teleperformance Romania, where we worked together for 5 years. During that time he provided an open and safe environment that allowed team members to share ideas and grow professionally. Cristian is organized, highly efficient, extremely competent, and has a solid working knowledge of Training & Development Management. He makes tough decisions to ensure goals are met with quality, on time and within budget. Cristian is a great leader whom I would highly recommend.
