President of RoundAssist
With over 25 years of experience in Software Development, Software Integration, and Telecommunications, Remus’ entrepreneurial spirit led to the founding of two successful
Toronto-based businesses: RoundAssist, a technology services company, and VoiceMailTel Inc, a telecommunications company. The latest addition to his portfolio is serving on the board of ISP Education Solutions, as a strategic investor and board member, as well as providing all the required technology solutions. Remus graduated from Transilvania University of Brasov, Romania, as Master in Engineering. Shortly afterwards, he became a VP for ROMPIRO-Department of Military Defense, building the IT Department from scratch. He implemented the company’s ERP and Manufacturing in record time and on budget. He then became Director of FIMAN, Community of Europe, a leading consortium of 25 companies that implemented a technology training program and investment in manufacturing. Remus later built and sold a software company and decided to relocate to Ontario, Canada.
In 2002, after a few years of working in management positions in TNT Logistics and Shred-it, he co-founded VoiceMailTel, seeing a need in the VoIP market for innovative, top quality services that offer good value. As the business model was successful and Remus gained an excellent reputation, the requests for extended, full-package services became more and more frequent. Opportunity rose, and RoundAssist was founded, in partnership with Bruce Croxon who is a Canadian entrepreneur, television personality, and venture capitalist: partner at Round13 Capital, co-founded the dating website Lavalife, co-host of BNN’s TV show, The Disruptors and joined the cast of CBC’s Dragons’ Den from 2011-2013. Remus put together a team of skilled people, with services offered ranging from Hosting to Development and 24/7 IT Support. He and his management team successfully tackle even the most challenging of projects, and Remus’ expertise and advice is frequently sought after when someone in his circle is looking for or making investments.
He is considering himself a hands-on serial entrepreneur that is using the romanaian technical talent and companies, combined with the canadian reputation, to bring high quality products and services to the market. With a great track record, Remus is always open to bring well-established Romanian businesses to the Canadian clients.
In the little spare time he gets, Remus enjoys tennis, basketball and spending time with his family
