After six and a half years at the head of Dacia-Groupe Renault, the general manager of the company, Francois Fourmont said officially good bye to the Romanian media in a moving event organized on Tuesday evening at Pullman hotel from Bucharest. In spite of the snow storm, tens of representatives of the central and local media were present at the event, having at the same time the occasion to meet Jerome Olive, the person who “takes the wheel” of Dacia. “Dacia adventure has hardly started,” Mr. Fourmont said. “I assure you that you will have reasons to be happy in the next years, starting right with the launching of Dacia Duster in 2010,” he added.


In his turn, Jerome Olive declared himself happy to be in Romania which represents for Renault Group the second country in terms of activity after France.
