The Financial Supervisory Authority (ASF) approved the appointment of Adrian Tanase (photo) as CEO of the Bucharest Stock Exchange (BVB), a press release informs. Thus, the mandate as Interim CEO of Marius-Alin Barbu ceases and comes back to his position of Deputy CEO.
The new CEO of BVB has a four-year term.
Previously, Adrian Tanase, 42, has been the Chief Investment Officer of NN Pensii, the biggest private pension fund manager in Romania, for over four years. Tanase was also a member of the CFA Institute. He had a professional development exclusively in the stock market, before being co-opted by ING, being for a year and a half KD Maximus fund’s manager of Slovenian KD Investments, which withdrew from the Romanian capital market in the context of the international financial crisis.
Since the end of last year, at the level of BVB’s administrative management, a consensus has emerged that a Romanian must come to the institution’s leadership, after four years of ‘Polish experiment’ in the person of Ludwik Sobolowski.
