BRINEL, one of the leading providers of IT solutions and services in Romania, announces the appointment of Andrei Savin as Chief Executive Officer, starting this week.
Andrei Savin has more than 17 years of business experience in companies such as Nortel Networks, Vodafone and IBM, building partnerships and delivering digital transformation programs for both local market and Fortune 500 clients in Europe and the United States of America. During his last experience at IBM Consulting, he coordinated the consulting operations of the Business Transformation Services division within the EMEA Innovation Centres and delivered digital transformation programs for clients in various industries (banking, retail, telecom, distribution). Together with the team, Andrei built the IBM iX service delivery division that focuses on transforming clients' digital portfolios, starting with brand identity creation, to new digital experiences, marketing transformation, e-commerce and sales. He has a remarkable career path, moving from solving clients' technical problems to leading regional and global teams in technology areas.
By means of his expertise and dedication to IT, Andrei Savin has the ability to make a definitive contribution to the accelerated development of BRINEL's business lines in the years to come.
“Technology plays a critical role across various industries ̶ transforming the business models of firms and bringing growth and profitability. Moreover, competitiveness is often about having access to the right expertise and experiences. Building upon BRINEL's existing values (tradition, entrepreneurship, loyalty to employees, customer, and business partners), we will continue to play a key role in the digital transformation process of our customers as a provider of infrastructure, digital transformation and cloud solutions and services. I am therefore happy to join the BRINEL team, a dynamic team focused on constantly bringing value to customers," said Andrei Savin, CEO of BRINEL.
Thus, after more than 31 years of activity within the business he built, Marcel Borodi will hand over the BRINEL leader position to Andrei Savin. The founder will remain involved in the strategic activity of the SNEF Group in the region, as a member of the Board of Managers of SNEF CEE, being at the side of the new CEO for a smooth transition.

He has all the advantages, and I am convinced that it will be the continuation of a beautiful story, in which the contributions of the wonderful people in the BRINEL team can be found!", said Marcel Borodi, founder of BRINEL.
