To come to Romania in the turbulent period the country was facing in the 1990s, was not the ideal circumstance for a foreigner. However, I was excited with the opportunity to build here “SOS Satele Copiilor Romania”, two villages for children in Bucharest and in Cisnadie/Sibiu. After successful completing and managing to take in 180 children, I was thrilled by the market dynamism and I founded Stein & Partner with the aim to promote the opportunities in Romania among investors and to support companies in their establishment of local organizations with the right people. Now, almost 25 years later, I am sure it was the best decision, giving me the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful country, to work with remarkable colleagues, and be able to support so many companies over the years.
