I wish to contribute with all the experience accumulated so far to seize these opportunities both in Romania and internationally,” says Ghica.
Olga Melihov, one of the professionals with proven experience in the regional real estate market, has previously acted as Country Manager at BNP Paribas Real Estate Romania, one of the strongest Central and Eastern European subsidiaries in the group.

“For me, E-INFRA means Romanians who build in Romania and for Romania, and I’ve gladly received the proposition to join such a passionate, open and innovative team. I am looking forward to contributing in the implementation of new strategic directions for a sustainable business development and growth, with the main goal of expanding the customer portfolio and strengthening national and international partnerships across all five companies within the holding,” adds Melihov.
