CEO, NTT DATA Romania
With over 20 years IT&C experience in developing strategic business lines, Maria became CEO of NTT DATA Romania in May 2021. Throughout her career at NTT DATA Romania, she has actively contributed to building relevant structures and shaping the specific business processes by developing and integrating markets and portfolios to meet the constantly changing requirements. She implemented the collaborative leadership style and is actively promoting communication transparency, people involvement and clearly defined strategy.
The collaborative approach to leading teams is best suited for today’s complex workplace, where newer, less-defined problems need agile solutions. Through collaborative leadership, executives can create an inclusive environment that energises teams, releases creativity, and cultivates a company culture that is both productive and joyful where information is exchanged organically, and everyone takes responsibility for the whole.
Embarking on continuous transformation is one of the most significant decisions a CEO has to make, but 2020 has taught us that we must prepare for the unexpected. Vision, ambition, commitment and conviction will be required of not only the leadership team, but everyone in the organisation.
