ALEXANDRU - SORIN IONESCU

FOUNDER AND CEO 

At the time i am writing this i have just turned 38 being blessed by God's grace with a good spouse and the sweetest girl in the world. You can call me Alexandru. Old friends and acquaintances still call me Sorin. Personal rebranding is not easy but i have a sweet tooth for marketing and i love the challenge. One of my latest passions is byzantine music and in 2011 I even joined a psaltic group called Nectarie Protopsaltul.  

I graduated “Politehnica” University Bucharest – Engineering Sciences German Department and the German College, Goethe in Bucharest, and continued my higher education with the Royal Foundation of Hospitality Management post-graduate diploma signed in 2007 by Her Royal Highness The Princess Margarita of Romania and Mr. Ruud Reuland – General Director of Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne (EHL). My career began in 1998 experiencing 2 multinational strategy consulting companies: Cap Gemini and Roland Berger Strategy Consulting.

2003 offered me the opportunities to follow my dream on the entrepreneurship path. Along with the hotel tourism and leisure experience that i started to build in 2004, i am grateful to prior industry experiences that have offered me the much needed lateral thinking and problem solving skills. Methodological competencies in fields like hotel development, hotel asset management, M&A, financial management, organization/ sop, marketing and sales, procurement, HR.. help me to always create and coordinate services adapted to the needs of each individual client. I speak fluently English and German.

I have been invited to teach the Financial Management course as a Lecturer of the American Hotel Academy in Brasov. The first generation of students received their Master of Science International Hospitality & Tourism Business Management degree in 2014.
