Thursday, June 14, 2012

Over 1.500 guests congratulated the largest Romanian software company’s success
Clients from 19 countries across 3 continents, partners and collaborators from around the world, famous artists, emotional speeches, unique artistic moments, award giving, perfect weather – these were the coordinates for the “SIVECO – 20 big years” anniversary event taking place at Snagov Conference Centre.
“Throughout these 20 years, we consistently focused on initiating and running projects of a breadth and complexity that intimidated many. We have taken on the task of achieving difficult things without looking back too often. Today, with 20 years of experience behind us, we can say that our company is a synonym for progress. SIVECO Romania has become not only the largest Romanian software house, but also an internationally respected brand, a leader in the IT field,” stated in her speech Irina Socol, President and CEO SIVECO Romania.
The company’s clients and partners highly valued their collaboration with the SIVECO team over the years.
Irina Socol received awards of excellence from the Bucharest Chamber of Commerce and Industry, University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest, the Titu Maiorescu University Academic Community, the National Institute for Research & Development in Informatics, the National Institute of Research and Development in Mechatronics and Measurement Technique.
During their speeches, guests recognized in unison the value of the SIVECO brand, of a notoriety that now goes beyond the borders of our country and continent, as well as the “No. 1 in Romanian IT” company’s contribution to building a digital society.
“This anniversary is a great joy for the IT community in Romania. We wish for SIVECO to continue prospering, in order to benefit us all,” said Doina Banciu, General Director of the National Institute for Research & Development in Informatics.

“It can be done! Romania is now also recognized through the SIVECO brand,” said Mihai Ionescu, President of the National Association of Romanian Exporters and Importers.

“I would like to note SIVECO’s contribution to shaping people in the IT industry. In this celebratory moment, I wish every SIVECO employee and those who had the initiative of creating the company, good health, power to continue their work and success. Happy birthday!,” Ion Iliescu, former president of Romania told the team.
Discussing the company’s international expansion, Mihnea Costoiu, Rector of the POLITEHNICA University of Bucharest, stated: “We are glad that there is a Romanian presence that has become international and that has imposed itself in spaces that were once forbidden for the Romanian industry.”
Sorin Mândruţescu, General Manager Oracle Romania, appreciated the SIVECO team’s activity, that “brought into the industry elements of the soft type: dedication, imagination, and, if there is anything I have always envied, it is that type of special relationship SIVECO has with its clients – ‘We’ll die if we have to, but the project must work – and it always has. This is something I want for my company’s organizational culture, but also as a standard in the entire IT industry. SIVECO is Oracle's most important partner.” 
SIVECO is also a trusted partner for HP. Radu Enache, general manager Hewlett Packard Romania stated: “All our great projects are linked with the collaboration with SIVECO. This is not about 1,300 competent, dynamic, serious people, about innovative software, about the extraordinary management ensured by Irina Socol, but about a company recognized internationally, whose development every one of us should support. The largest IT company in Romania is SIVECO.”
In Varujan Pambuccian’s vision, Deputy in the Romanian Parliament, “the most important thing about SIVECO is that it has managed to remain an entrepreneurial firm, and not a corporation.”
SIVECO guests had the privilege to witness a unique artistic spectacle. The special guest at the gala was Alessandro Saffina, famous Italian tenor and one of the most renowned and loved artists in the world, appreciated for the sensibility he transposes in his songs and for his remarkable musical career.

Guests also enjoyed the presence of Pavel Bartos, the soprano Iana, Bucharest Metropolitan Orchestra artists, Razvan Mazilu, who, together with his troupe presented explosive fragments from the Urban Kiss show and Voltaj.
The company has plans just as great for the next 20 years: “We will build great projects with our partners, together with whom we feel capable of reaching the most ambitious targets. We will open new possibilities of affirmation for Romanian specialists, both at home and in countries that still know very few things about Romania. We can already see, in our minds, our anniversary for the next 20 years. We will definitely be just as enthusiastic, making plans we are not even dreaming of yet,”   stated Irina Socol, President and CEO SIVECO Romania.
