Dinu Bumbăcea, new national leader of PwC in Romania
Big Four accounting and consulting giant PwC has appointed a new national managing partner for Romania.
On July 1, 2021, Dinu Bumbăcea will take the helm of the company, succeeding Ionut Simion, who has led PwC in Romania for the past six years and who will continue his 20-year career with the firm as a partner. Bumbăcea leads a team of more than 800 accountants, auditors, advisers, tax specialists and consultants, including a team of 21 partners.
Bumbăcea brings to this position nearly three decades of professional services experience, of which around 20 acquired at PwC over two periods. After starting his career with the firm and working his way up the ranks to become a partner, he left PwC to work for rivals KPMG (partner in his management consulting firm) and Deloitte (managing partner of Deloitte Consulting).
He joined PwC in early 2020, taking advantage of the past year to convince the partner team of his leadership. “I am happy to take over the management of the company where I started my career 28 years ago,” said Bumbăcea.
Speaking about his priorities, he said: “We will continue to work with our clients by providing them with value-added services; with our colleagues, build efficient and motivated teams; and, last but not least, with the communities in which we live and work.
The meeting sees PwC install a consultant in its reins. Bumbăcea has extensive experience in transaction services (including supplier due diligence, business, financial and IT due diligence) and management consulting services (including market and feasibility studies, process reengineering business, lean management, financial function transformation and systems implementation).
PwC has been based in Romania for three decades, since it launched its Bucharest office in 1989 (at the time the first of the Big Four to have a field presence in the country). Today, PwC has offices in Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Timișoara, Constanța and Chișinău.
