BT, represented by Mr. Horia Ciorcila, the Bank’s Chairman, was part of the official Romanian delegation at the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year gala, organized in June, this year, in Monaco. The agenda of this year’s event offered the opportunity to meet the following business leaders who have delivered speeches at the event:

The program, organized by the consultancy firm EY, is dedicated to entrepreneurs who build and run successful businesses. It is in fact a competition - the only global entrepreneurial competition - that takes place on an annual basis, in 145 cities from 60 countries, covering approximately 95% of the global economy. As of 2014, Romania is also part of this program. This year’s winner is Manny Stul, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Co-CEO of the Australian company Moose Enterprise.
The “Entrepreneur of The Year” program was launched in 1986, in the USA. More than 5,000 entrepreneurs from all over the world are nominated each year. Among the winners of the World Entrepreneur Of The Year title in the previous years, we encounter entrepreneurs that have changed the paradigm of their industries and have promoted new standards, such as: Guy Laliberté, founder and CEO of Cirque du Soleil - considered the creator of a new business model that has overhauled the circus industry, and Wayne Huizenga, the Chairman of Huizenga Holdings Inc - who has developed six companies up to the level of being listed with the New York Stock Exchange and has founded three companies classified as Fortune 500 at a global level.
