FIC Cocktail: Focus on Topic of Growth

On June 13, around 80 FIC members, potential members and other guests gathered for a pleasant cocktail in the premises of the Crowe RS, sponsor of the event. It was the occasion for FIC officials to thank the outgoing Executive Director Ana Tozzi for almost 12 years of committed work in FIC and wish warm welcome to her successor Aleksandar Ljubic. FIC VP Vladislav Lalic said she will be missed, citing in particular her commitment, knowledge and persistence.

Ana Tozzi said it was hard to say goodbye after almost 12 years spent in FIC but easy to say thank you. She reminded that FIC has grown to become a strong organization respected for expert views, representing the wider business community and not specific interest groups. This should not be taken for granted, she added. “Our White Book is I think the reference point for everybody who is thinking about doing business in Serbia, to see what it’s like operating in Serbia. Reputable international organizations see FIC as focal point for having an unbiased opinion about the economic developments here”, Ana said, mentioning also the well developed relations with the Government. It was a privilege to be in FIC, she concluded, wishing all the best to her successor and to FIC in future.

New Executive Director Aleksandar Ljubic thanked Ana for establishing high standards within the association. He also thanked for the confidence in him, and outlined his main plans at the position of the ED:  to try to increase the number of FIC members, make the association more influential, and to execute the decisions of the Board.

Communication Officer Milica Djordjevic also thanked former Executive Director for exceptional cooperation and wished new ED a warm welcome.

In his intro speech, FIC Vice President Dejan Turk presented the plan of main FIC activities in 2019, notably the WB preparations and launch and events on the GDPR, noting that harmonization with the EU in this domain came earlier than expected.  Reminding of the decision to re-introduce the cocktails, Dejan said it was the second cocktail in 2019. “In general, the idea is to meet, to talk about business, to have some fun, to have some drinks and network, meet some new friends, meet some new business partners, and to discuss how to together improve the business environment in Serbia”, he said. He also presented new Regulatory Officer Bojana Tomic- Brkusanin, wishing her warm welcome and thanked Ana for her immense support to FIC during all these years.

Bogdan Djuric, Managing Partner at Crowe RS and FIC BoD member, thanked FIC members for attending the event and invited them to stay after the official part for relaxed networking with music background. He said that the topic of the event was growth, and outlined that the Crowe RS company demonstrated it was possible to “grow in Serbia in an appropriate way without any usual Serbian brotherhood economy”. Bogdan Djuric said the growth in Crowe was achieved thanks to the employees, but also with the huge contribution of the partner that joined the company around 2 and a half years ago, Djordje Dimic. Djordje Dimic said that in that period Crowe managed to grow from 20 to 60 employees, and to double the revenue. Crowe is recognized as a leading consulting company in the area of transaction services and M&A services. “We grow our business by helping local companies to improve themselves and to make them attractive to the foreign investors”, he said. After the official part, members took time to exchange ideas in the pleasant atmosphere, including lovely terrace and music.
