During the third edition of the Forbes Gala that took place last week in Bucharest, GlobalLogic, was one of the 14 companies awarded as “Personality of the Year” in 2023 for the successful acquisition of Fortech, one of Romania’s largest leading digital engineering companies.

Through this event, Forbes Romania aimed to support and honor the spearheads of business in Romania, those inspirational leaders with a fierce determination to succeed. The leaders who overcame challenges and achieved greatness in their field. During the Forbes” Personality of the Year” Gala, Forbes Romania awarded 14 leading companies who knew how to grow and reinvent themselves in the most challenging period of modern history.

Based on an internal methodology, with declinations in various fields, Forbes Romania spotlighted a dynamic array of leaders from diverse business areas: tech, real estate, banking etc.

I was very grateful to receive this award on behalf of the GlobalLogic and Fortech leadership teams. As a company that has been crafting software solutions for over 20 years and, making the most of the opportunities that arise and overcoming challenges, we are honored for the recognition received from Forbes Romania. It confirms that we are an example worth following in the Romanian tech industry, even more so as 2023 is the year of Fortech’s post-merger integration journey with GlobalLogic. We are very excited for the road ahead and look forward to building the future for GlobalLogic in Romania.
