Romanian lawyer Andreea Lisievici has joined Volvo Cars in Sweden as the company's new Head of Group Data Protection Compliance.
Prior to her move Lisievici was a Partner with PrivacyOne, a boutique law firm in Romania specializing in data protection which has been working in alliance with Romania's Biris Goran law firm (as reported on April 17, 2018). She worked for Tuca Zbarcea & Asociatii between 2007 and 2016 and for Stoica si Asociatii in 2006-2007.
Commenting on her move, Lisievici told CEE Legal Matters: "Personal data protection has become a front runner of compliance programs especially in big companies. If you couple that with an ever-challenging field like automotive, which is seeing the development of smart cars and autonomous driving as we speak, it really is an opportunity I could never have refused. This job brings together my love for data protection law and my passion for technology, thus I am really happy to be embarking on this amazing road."
