In Romania, Wayfinder has an office in Cluj – Napoca. In 2008, the company was planning to reach 100 staff in its Cluj – Napoca office. Then, the company had 18 Romanian employees.
Following the acquisition by Vodafone, Tommy Ahlers became Wayfinder’s CEO, replacing Magnus Nilsson, who had also been in charge of the Romanian operations.
