CMS Romania is pleased to announce that Andrei Tercu has been promoted to Tax Director as of January 2021. Andrei joined the CMS team 5 years ago and has 13 years’ professional experience in the tax field, previously working with a Big 4 firm and with another specialist consulting company.
Horea Popescu, Managing Partner of CMS Romania and Head of CEE Corporate M&A: “The decision to promote Andrei to Tax Director is confirmation of the results and his involvement in consolidating and developing CMS’s client portfolio and successfully coordinating projects of great complexity in many industrial sectors. Tax consulting remains a key service in the daily operational activity of each business as well as in investment projects, corporate reorganisations and restructurings, acquisition transactions, divestment processes, and tax litigation. I wish the best of success to Andrei and I am convinced that from this senior role, he will achieve new growth and development objectives in the CMS team.”
Roxana Popel, Head of the Tax practice in CMS Romania: “Congratulations to Andrei on this promotion.

Andrei Tercu: “Being entrusted with this new role is an important moment in my career. I am delighted to be part of a team that promotes high human and professional standards and values. Along with the extraordinary team of lawyers at CMS, I had the opportunity to be involved in some of the most complex and varied projects and transactions both in Romania and in the broader CEE region. The CMS team in Bucharest offers an integrated legal and tax consulting service, therefore we are able to respond quickly to client requests and requirements imposed by the degree of complexity of the projects in which they are involved.”
