Mihaela Racles has joined Profi Rom Food as the company's Legal Compliance Director in Romania.
Racles started her career at BCR in 2005, where she stayed until she moved to Raiffeisen Leasing Romania in 2008. She returned to BCR in 2009 and stayed with the company for another two years. Later on, Racles spent two and a half years at Alpha Leasing Romania and five years at Lidl. She moved to Nobel in 2019, where she served as the Head of Legal. Racles obtained her first and second master’s degrees at the Nicolae Titulescu University of Bucharest in 2008 and 2009, respectively, and her third master’s degree at the University of Bucharest in 2009.
"The retail market is very challenging and competitive," Racles commented. "Profi, the biggest retailer in terms of the number of stores and geographical expansion, is a very dynamic company, focused on growth and development, which is also the way I am. I was convinced by the entrepreneurial approach and by all the exciting projects that the company has. Most of all, I am happy that I found here a very enthusiastic and engaged team. I believe in strong in-house legal teams that are real business partners, with a pro-active role — not a re-active role — within the company. I am looking forward to this new challenge!"
