Who we are
Ekkou VP (Romania) was founded in 2010 by Mr. Petru Schipor as a top provider of integrated services, specializing in sectors like construction, energy, oil & gas, as well as the management of partnerships and projects that arise from major investment opportunities in EMEA and Asia – Pacific regions.
President & CEO
Born in Bukovina, a historic region in northeastern Romania, Petru Schipor began his professional career in the field of insurance, where over the course of a decade he made a name for himself through success and professionalism. He accumulated a vast expertise in the local and regional market, including Moldova, as regional development director for Austrian bank BAWAG AG (currently BAWAG PSK).
At the start of the new millennium, he chose to diversify his expertise in sales and distribution by joining forces with Greek group Lazaridis Marmor as development director for Eastern Europe and Russia. This was a turning point in his career, as he began to establish contacts with business and institutional partners in the eastern hemisphere (Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Russia, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan) that later guided him towards the position of investment integrator for a major Russian oil company. His contribution to identifying and establishing commercial ties with business partners in China and distributors in Canada proved vital in establishing a value chain from refining to distribution of finished products.
In 2010, motivated by the extent of his previous success and the opportunities revealed by the new economic context, he establishes his own consultancy firm – Ekkou VP (Romania), designed and positioned as provider of integrated services for the construction, management and implementation of partnerships and projects in response to major international business opportunities in the EMEA and Asia-Pacific regions.
Soon after, Ekkou VP entered a period of accelerated growth, successfully implementing a series of diverse regional projects and building solid ties to companies and business leaders in order to address investment opportunities from Brazil to Kamchatka and from Canada to China.
