“One of Mirela’s appreciated talents is her proactive acceptance of responsibility and taking initiatives.” This is how Mr Harald Kraft, her direct superior, described her and we believe that he is right. Mirela was greatly influenced by her maternal grandmother who instilled in her from an early age the values of honesty, honour, family and knowledge. After graduation she quickly advanced professionally due to a strong dedication to her work, becoming the head of a legal department. In 2004 she became Group Legal Manager at a Romanian-American group of companies. Mirela joined the Petrom team in 2007; a company, which she finds, offers her equal professional and personal support, as she is a mother of two. Additionally to juggling a successful career and her family life, Mirela has been getting involved in various volunteer and charity work. Her priority at this point is the involvement in education, both at the office by supporting young people to develop a career as well as engaging others in various education projects in school. Mirela enjoys cooking, travelling and gardening.
