CTP, the leading premium industrial parks developer and long-term manager in Romania and Central and Eastern Europe, has appointed Daniel Paraschiv as Business Development Manager for Transylvania, starting June. He will oversee the company’s growth and strengthening in the Western region of Romania. CTP plans further developments in Transylvania in the second semester (S2) of 2018, with a strong focus on three of its parks: CTPark Sibiu, CTPark Timisoara II, and CTPark Cluj II.
Mr Paraschiv will discover and develop new business opportunities, while also managing the partnerships and future expansions of existing tenants, for all CTP’s strategic locations in Transylvania region. In this region, CTP owns several A-class logistics and industrial parks in the following cities: Arad, Cluj-Napoca, Deva, Sibiu, Timișoara, Turda, Ineu and Salonta. Mr. Paraschiv’s extensive experience was acquired during a career that spreads on more than 17 years and include key positions in major companies located in Cluj county. Previous to joining CTP, Mr. Paraschiv have spent almost 3 years as Branch Manager and Commercial Director within the Romanian-Dutch company E van Wijk, the first private transport firm in Cluj-Napoca, founded in 1992. With over 10 years of experience as Sales Director in the automotive industry in Cluj-Napoca, he is an excellent choice for building CTP’s market position by locating, developing, defining, negotiating, and closing business relationships in this region.
We believe that Mr. Paraschiv is an outstanding appointment for CTP as we continue to extend our business in Romania. His extensive experience is welcomed, and I am sure that he will lead our business development and sales teams to new heights. We have important projects for our parks in Transylvania, an area with a very fast economic growth. As a result, the demand for industrial and logistics spaces reached one of the highest levels since CTP entered the local market. Our purpose is to adapt to our client’s needs, so we strengthened our team in order to offer our existing and future tenants premium services, as always”, stated Iuliana Busca, Commercial & Business Development Manager.
