In parallel with the group’s accelerated development strategy, both organically and through M&A transactions, we have been working intensively on the integration process of the acquired companies in the last almost two years within AROBS. We needed an executive with a deep knowledge of the technology industry ecosystem to implement this process and establish synergies with both the companies already acquired and the future entities that will join the group. Gabriela Mechea’s role will be to maximize collaboration and common advantages at the level of all companies, which will lead to the growth of their businesses and, implicitly, of the group. We welcome Gabriela Mechea to the AROBS team, and we are confident that together we will consolidate our group’s position in the technology field, locally and globally,” stated Voicu Oprean, founder and CEO of AROBS.

Gabriela Mechea is an executive with over 20 years of experience in technology companies, both Romanian entrepreneurial companies and international. Throughout her extensive professional career, Gabriela Mechea has held leadership positions in companies such as Gecad, Avira Romania, and Vector Watch, where she contributed to their development at the local and international levels. Also, between 2019-2023, Gabriela Mechea was the Executive Director of the Employers’ Association of the Software and Services Industry (ANIS).

I am thrilled to join the 1,200+ colleagues in the AROBS Group and contribute to the growth and consolidation of the company. The success of AROBS is unique in the Romanian technology industry, with an organic growth that is hard to match, through expansion based on an accelerated acquisition process in Romania and abroad and innovation projects. Thus, I am honored to be appointed Integration Director“, stated Gabriela Mechea, Integration Director of AROBS Transilvania Software.

As Integration Director of AROBS, Gabriela Mechea will be responsible for harmonizing the activities of the companies acquired by the group in the last almost two years, as well as the entities that will join AROBS within the continuous growth process of the group through M&A transactions.
