Business Migrant Life Stories

Meet the Team: Marius Nedelcu

From fitness to fintech, via Romania, Sweden and Croatia, Marius Nedelcu has come a long way both professionally and geographically. Here he discusses his background, expat experience and the culture and ethos at TransferGo…

Meet Marius Nedelcu, our director of Brand Marketing and Market Expansion, and one of TransferGo’s key players. Born in a small town near Bucharest, Romania, Marius joined us back in 2016, shortly after the EU referendum result. Based in our London office, he originally started as the country manager of Romania, playing a significant role in the growth of our Romanian market. Marius continues to play a major part in making TransferGo the company it is today, helping us to expand and launch into new markets.

“If you don’t move around and learn about new people and cultures, it’s difficult to grow and develop…

When I first joined TransferGo, there weren’t many nationalities. But today, we have people from countries all over the world. It’s very exciting. It’s a massive benefit working for a company with so many cultures because every individual brings something different to the table. You can see the differences in jokes, behaviours, learnings and experiences. I always like to experience different cultures, markets, mentalities and ways of doing things. I believe that if you stay put, if you don’t travel, if you don’t open your mind and learn about new people, you just don’t grow. Which in my view, is a very sad thing in life.”

“London is one of the most exciting cities in the world…

I have always loved the city of London, even before I moved here. But once I was here, I realised I also loved the culture. It’s so multicultural with so many nationalities and trends coming from everywhere. I particularly love how people don’t judge. You can live your life however you want to. You can wear whatever you want to and nobody cares. The multicultural aspect is helping London to be what it is. I know it’s busy and it rains but it’s such a relaxed and tolerant place.”

“It’s great to be surrounded by super-crazy smart people at work…

I love the positive people and vibes at TransferGo. There is no negativity. I don’t think criticism helps people go further or achieve results. A positive take on everything is definitely the way to do things. I also love being surrounded by such smart and open-minded people, who help me to learn and develop further at my old age. Every day is a fun day. It’s like being at home. You can talk openly to people, learn new things, ask for help without judgement and work in whichever corner of the office you want to. It really is a great place to be.”

“Every day I remind myself that I managed to transition, and that makes me happy.

When I first moved to TransferGo after 15 years in the fitness industry, my friends thought I was crazy. I hadn’t worked in the industry before so, how would I cope? In the first few months, I was wondering whether I would survive here and be able to help the company grow and achieve results. But here I am, almost four years later.

Every day I remind myself that this is my biggest achievement.”
