Since the onset of our our professional interaction, I appreciated Mr. Popal’s professional and personal conduct. Extremely approachable a ... nd bright, he is a remarkable entrepreneur, working diligently and consistently within a variety of government and private sector contracting domains, and has been greatly involved in providing constructive solutions in post-conflict settings. As a key partner in our projects, we benefitted from his focus on optimum outcomes, always guided by his objectivity and principled approach, with an emphasis to increasing the benefits and go beyond requirements. He navigates strategy and business planning with ease, in the highly challenging and diverse environments. Drawing upon international best practice and comparative analysis of various frontier markets matching the requirements with international best practices, he assisted us in evaluate at times times conflicting client requirements, which required intense reflection and meticulous consideration, to provide a commonly acceptable solution. His multicultural versatility and exceptional communication skills made him an ideal candidate to give an expose on a variety of topics and to single handed manage capital intensive defense projects. He is a visionary with strong commitment in a dynamic and greatly competitive legal environment. His determination paired with his extraordinary level of energy consistently drive him to him to seek excellence, exemplified through his consistent quest for knowledge. It gives me great pleasure to endorse Mr. Yama Popal enthusiastically and without any reservations. Sincerely, Mihaela Moldoveanu
