General Manager

(b. 1968)

Hi! I am Laurentiu-Adrian and since 2000 when I was chosen to look after Barklav’s biz as General Manager, my life has positively changed after 10 years of seafaring career onboard bulk carriers and tanker vessels.

My family until then represented by my wife and the two children was then rounded by the third “child” named Barklav.
From the very beginning, I made a personal oath to dedicate my full capacity and tirelessly work to raise Barklav as a sustainable biz where People have a central place - “a biz for People”!
2003 was another special year for me, when I was entrusted by the Norwegian government as honorary Consul in Constanta and the neighborhood counties.

Further, all these years, I spent no efforts to ensure transfer experience from Norway to Romania trying to secure a positive working climate for people forming Barklav environment and establish a social responsibility program as a return to the society which helped us to develop.

2013 marked my 10th anniversary as a honorary Consul, when H.M. King Harald, through H.E. Oystein Hovdkinn, Ambassador of Norway in Romania appointed me, Officer of his Order of Merit (First Degree) as a recognition of great contribution to furthering Norwegian interests
in my area if responsibility;

As competence is considered a critical success factor in our organization, in 2004 I have graduated the WW Academy – Global Leadership Development Program module I in Oslo-Norway and module II in Boston-USA. In 2015 I was enrolled with the Middlesex University in London for
the MBA courses in Shipping and Logistic, successfully graduated in 2017 with the MERIT degree.

2018 is special, as my third “child” is celebrating the “maturity” and have to prove that all accumulated experience during these years will ensure a bright future in a challenging world!

Congratulation Barklav! Congratulation People forming Barklav!
