“The role of a Regional HR Business Partner primarily consists in strategic coordination of human resources, collaboration with the business partners, both for devising priorities and strategies in the countries in the region. I will remain in contact with Romania and other countries with growth potential in the region and this aspect is highly motivating for me”, Florin Petrescu told Wall-Street.
