Tudor Borlea
Pre-Sales Engineer

Tudor has spent the past 12 years gradually moving from IT focused roles like software implementation and integration towards more Business focused roles like business analysis and management consulting.

As a Management Consultant, Tudor was fortunate to work in several large Business Transformation programmes, across various industries, experiencing first hand the change management challenges around process, organisation, data, applications and technology.
