08 January, 2014

Baker Tilly in Romania (Baker Tilly Klitou) celebrated its tenth anniversary with a special ceremony last month held at the Athenee Palace Hilton in Bucharest.
Clients of Baker Tilly Klitou as well as associates and collaborators, together with the Baker Tilly team, were present during the numerous events organised throughout the day.
Geoff Barnes, CEO and President of Baker Tilly International, was one of the main speakers of the event. Adam Grainger, the EMEA Director of Baker Tilly International was also present on behalf of the Global Office.
Marios Klitou, CEO of Baker Tilly Klitou and Mamas Koutsoyiannis, Managing Director of Baker Tilly in Romania and Moldova talked about the history of the firm and guided the audience through the most important milestones of the past decade. Nicolaos Giannisis, CEO of PrimeCapital which is one of the firm’s first collaborators in Romania, shared his experiences with Baker Tilly.
Almost 200 people attended the events including high ranking public officials, such as Kaliopi Avraam (Ambassador of Cyprus in Romania), Grigorios Vassiloconstandakis (Ambassador of Greece in Romania), Nasty Valdoiu, the President of the Union of Bilateral Chambers of Commerce in Romania and many others.
Marios Klitou thanked all clients and associates for their loyal support and pointed out that “the path to the tenth anniversary was not plain and simple at all. But it was full of interesting challenges. The tenth anniversary is only one step on our long and winding road, and I’m sure that Baker Tilly shall step forward further with our determination in achieving higher goals. Now, we are ranked seventh in Romania in terms of combined fees and number of employees with service offerings in five different business units”.
Klitou said the firm’s plans include to expand across other major towns in Romania.
As regards Baker Tilly’s social responsibility, Klitou said that “we are very proud that our close collaboration with Hope and Hopes in Romania is continuing, as we are giving the chance to a better life to institutionalised children in Romania. We have also been one of the founding members of the Bilateral Chamber of Commerce and Industry Romania – Cyprus in our efforts to strengthen the commercial relations between Romania and Cyprus”.
