McGuireWoods Romania Establishes Presence in Germany, Brussels; Expands Team and Communications Capabilities

Bucharest - McGuireWoods Romania announced today that it has hired Wolfgang Schneider as Senior Advisor, George Carpov as Strategic Communications Coordinator, and Daniel Zamfiropol as Senior Associate. The additions highlight McGuireWoods’ commitment to strengthen ties with Germany and Brussels, thus opening new opportunities for clients while significantly expanding the group’s depth and expertise.

“We are very excited to welcome Wolfgang, George and Daniel to the McGuireWoods Romania team,” said Nadia Crisan, managing director of McGuireWoods Romania. “As the Romanian business market becomes more dynamic and specialized, and as our clients’ needs grow, we feel the additions of George, Wolfgang and Daniel will position us to better serve their objectives and meet our own business goals.”

Schneider becomes part of McGuireWoods Consulting team after a 32-year career at Ford Europe. For the past 14 years, he served as Vice President coordinating the Ford Europe’s Governmental, Environmental and Legal Affairs department. Wolfgang will be a great resource for clients with German interests or those looking to enter the German marketplace. Moreover, he will also offer advisory services from Brussels, Europe’s regulatory center, for both Romanian and foreign investors.

“I forged a relationship with McGuireWoods Romania eight years ago when we hired them to assist with the establishment of our Ford Europe operations in Romania,” said Schneider.  “I was introduced to a hard working group of dedicated professionals that went to great lengths to accomplish the task at hand. It is my privilege to join this team.” 

Carpov possesses more than 10 years of experience dealing with major international and local public relations consultancies, as well as key multinational companies in Romania. His strong professional background reinforces McGuireWoods Romania’s ability to provide a full suite of integrated government relations, communications and advocacy services to best meet client needs.

Zamfiropol will focus on healthcare and energy, two sectors with growth potential that require a high level of expertise due to regulatory changes. Prior to joining McGuireWoods Romania, he worked for Vamed Engineering GmbH, a leading world healthcare infrastructure provider.
