“I had the privilege to work with talented people throughout my mandate, with whom the company became a leader in the Balkans. Recently, we added to this success the delivery of new ice cream products and acquisition of Napoca brand. Looking ahead to new challenges, I thank all my colleagues for their unique talent and passion and I am sure we will find here the potential we need to continue this successful story”, said Alexandra Gatej.
