Grup Feroviar Roman brings on board new Human Resources Director

Starting July 1, Mihaela Crăciun, EMBA, took over the role of Human Resources Director of Grup Feroviar Roman (GFR), the flagship company of GRAMPET Group.

She has over 20 years of experience in top organizations in the steel, oil & gas, cement, information technology and food industries. Throughout his career, she has managed multicultural teams and complex projects of organizational transformation and culture change. As human resources director, she was part of the regional management team of the largest steel company in the world. She has defined and implemented the human resources strategy for thousands of employees in Romania and Northern Macedonia, Turkey, Greece; she has built and strengthened the human resources function at group level and has managed significant annual budgets of tens or hundreds of millions of euros. Mihaela is a Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies graduate and has an EMBA through the program developed by ASEBUSS in collaboration with Kennesaw State University – USA.

“We are glad that Mihaela joins the most important company in GRAMPET Group, bringing the experience she has gained in similar roles in comparable industries in terms of complexity and challenges. We thus bring another valuable professional in the human resources team, which has an essential role for sustainable growth and achieving our business objectives,” says Gruia Stoica, President of the GRAMPET Group. “I am confident that her profile completes the experience and talent of the existing team, at an important moment for our company, which today celebrates 20 years of activity.”

Mihaela Crăciun adds: “I am honored to join the largest private railway transport operator in the region, which is entering a new stage of growth and development. I intend to bring through my experience a fresh perspective within the management team, which will amplify existing projects and identify new opportunities and strategies.”

Despite its strategic role, the railway industry is facing one of the most serios labor crises in history, as fewer and fewer young people show interest in a career in this field, and the pressure for innovation and digitalization pushes for a new employee profile.

In recent years, Grup Feroviar Român has accelerated training and development programs carried out internally, but also through collaborations with partners from the professional and academic environment.

“Regardless of the industry, I think we are all at a key moment for the labor market, which requires rethinking and optimizing the human resources strategy, in line with the new post-pandemic economic paradigm,” continues Gruia Stoica. “The challenge is thus even greater for HR professionals, because the way they understand the new reality will directly influence companies’ future and, implicitly, their specific industries’ future in a global context.”

From her role, Mihaela Crăciun will coordinate the human resources activity of GFR, including recruitment and talent development, staff training, career planning, and performance management.
