Research and analytics firm Evalueserve is to open its first research centre in Europe, with the establishment of an office in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
The firm says that as the new base will be located at the crossroads of Western, Central and Eastern Europe, it will be able to offer diversity in terms of foreign language speakers. In addition, the presence of nine universities and more than 100,000 students in the city will provide it with a 'rich talent pool'.
CEO and co-founder Marc Vollenweider commented: 'Our Romania office significantly enhances our delivery capability for European clients, as it is based inside the EU and can deliver work in Continental European languages such as German, French, Italian as well as Slavic languages and Hungarian. Moreover, it enables us to deliver research with much deeper insights on Europe including Russia and the Ukraine, based on a much better understanding of the local context.'
Evalueserve was founded in 2000 by former McKinsey partner Vollenweider and former IBM director Alok Aggarwal. The company currently has more than 2,400 employees working from operating centers in the Americas (Chile) and Asia (India and China).
