LONDON, UK – November 18, 2013 – An association of IT companies based in Romania has appointed Christophe Bajc as one of its Directors.
Christophe Bajc has been Cluj Service Delivery Director at London and Romania-based IT consulting and outsourcing company Xoomworks since January 2012.
He is one of the founding members of the Cluj IT Cluster which now comprises 23 technology companies with combined turnover of 100 million euros, more than 4,000 employees and two major universities.
The Cluster aims to foster innovation through R&D partnerships, encourage investment in education and training, promote best practices and raise awareness of Cluj as a centre of IT excellence.
Cluj-Napoca, commonly known as Cluj, in the north-west of Romania, is the second most populous city in the country after the capital Bucharest. It is a major IT centre with a tradition of excellence based on its advanced education system and concentration of IT businesses.
Christophe Bajc said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue to collaborate in the achievement of the Cluster’s objectives which I believe are in the best interests of our employees and clients and the IT sector in Cluj.”
Xoomworks Managing Director, Nic Hutchins said: “Xoomworks has offered IT outsourcing services from our near shore centre in Romania since 2007. Being based here allows us to offer our clients cost-effective access to the large pool of highly skilled, multilingual developers and testers who underpin our service offerings.
“Technical excellence, collaboration, education and involvement in local community life are strongly embedded in Xoomworks’ values. It was therefore logical for us to be one of the driving forces behind the creation of the Cluj IT Cluster. I am delighted that Chris has been appointed as Director.”
One of the Cluster’s long term projects is the development of Cluj Innovation City, a high-technology business and R&D centre providing state-of-the-art facilities to local and foreign IT companies, start-ups and educational institutions.
