Maria Cenușă

Maria has spent the last 8 years of her banking experience being involved in many change projects, from turnaround and business restructuring to building up new departments and reshuffling the existing modus operandi. She is passionate about discovering new ways of working, bringing new models to operating the business and creating synergies between teams with different backgrounds. The business challenges that Maria loves to solve as a consultant are: What is the organizational culture and what are the gaps between the desired state? What is preventing an organization from performing at its best? Is the current structure optimal to allow for fluidity in change projects? How can we instill a way of working that embraces change? What are the relevant growth strategies for a certain organization? How can we measure and monitor performance of change projects? Maria has 12 years of managerial experience; she served as general manager of 2 companies, with standing invitation to become a board member of a bank. Her innovation focus is managing businesses outside main area of expertise with the clear mandate for change and business redesign.
