The CN Group office in Bucharest – opened in 2016 – will now operate under the Ciklum brand. This forms part of Ciklum’s plans to expand its footprint across Eastern Europe.
Ciklum, a global digital engineering company, announced that CN Group’s Romanian office will now operate under the Ciklum name. This is the first office to be rebranded since CN Group’s acquisition in September 2021.
Established in 1994, CN Group has a strong presence as one of Eastern Europe’s most prominent software development companies. CN Group has a team in Romania that unites several dozen professionals working on the end-to-end development of innovative solutions for globally recognised organisations across industries. This year, Ciklum plans to grow the number of specialists in the new office.
The expansion of the hub in Romania is a testament to the digital engineering company’s growth plans to further invest in CN Group. Due to the well-established cooperation processes within multinational teams and continuous knowledge-sharing across different locations, Ciklum is confident about the successful development of the hub in Bucharest.
“After the acquisition of the Czech CN Group, which also cooperates with Romanian developers, establishing a new delivery hub under the Ciklum brand was only a matter of time for us. We know about the strong talent pool in Eastern and Central Europe – thousands of our colleagues work from Ukraine, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia. Now we can confidently add Romania to this list. We are sure that Ciklum’s experience in the global IT industry will open up many opportunities for local talent to grow professionally and refresh the local IT community,” said Kulraj Smagh, CEO, Ciklum.
This strategy leverages CN Group’s achievements and local expertise coupled with Ciklum’s global aspirations and experience, all to ensure that the high quality of service to clients continues. The company believes that building a broad professional network that combines local expertise and a global business vision is key to its business growth plans.
“The synergy between CN Group and Ciklum is the right one, not only from a business point of view, but also because we share the same corporate culture. This lends to a relationship that compliments our existing processes. With Ciklum, together, I am confident we will achieve even better results for our customers. We can do this through more local and global support networks, and our growing talent pool of IT professionals to support new growth opportunities for our existing clients and new business.” said Michal Širica, CEO, CN Group.
A few months ago, Ciklum also opened a delivery hub in Sofia, Bulgaria, which already brings together more than 100 professionals.
