As of February 2019, George Ureche returns to PwC as M&A Leader. In the past year, he was the CEO one of the largest media and entertainment groups in Romania.
George has a vast experience in the management of the two most important media groups in Romania – Antena TV Group and ProTV/Media Pro. He was responsible for the operational management of these companies, but also for their investment activities, transactions, financing, business restructuring as well as the management of EU financed projects.
He also worked in the M&A department of PwC Romania for more than 7 years, during which time he coordinated numerous deals and was involved in consulting projects for clients in various sectors such as media, IT, retail, transport and logistics, telecom, financial services, tourism, agriculture, energy and pharma.
”George is part of the PwC family so his return came naturally. Together with him, I am convinced PwC has the best transactions team in Romania, a M&A one-stop shop that approaches a transaction project from all possible angles – from corporate financing, to transaction services and due-diligence, but also analysing the legal and tax implications. I wish George the best of luck in his new role!”, stated Luca Martini, Advisory Leader, PwC Romania.
”I have the consulting activity in my professional DNA and returning to PwC feels like home. PwC has a sensational team of M&A professionals, which combines vast technical knowledge with an excellent industry expertise and an in-depth understanding of the Romanian business environment. We help our clients create value through mergers and acquisitions, by following the whole process, from the development of the strategy, implementing transactions, negotiations, identifying synergies and optimization opportunities post-merger”, stated George Ureche, M&A Leader, PwC Romania.
”I had the great opportunity to be working both with dynamic and innovative entrepreneurs as well as in a reputed professional services firms like PwC.
