We are pleased to announce that Mr Ivan Pilepić is joining Čipčić-Bragadin Mesić and Associates as Business Development Director.
Mr Pilepić is a second non-legal senior executive that joins Čipčić-Bragadin Mesić and Associates in 2018.
Mr Ivan Pilepić earned his degree in Business Administration from the Schiller International University, Heidelberg, Germany. He has significant international experience gained by working with renowned international companies and institutions such as the Finstar Financial Group (Business Development Manager for SEE Region, Country Manager), Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, EBRD (Senior Key Expert) and Post Bank (SME Banking Specialist), UNDP (Project Manager / Chief Economic Officer), Deloitte Consulting LLC, Washington (Senior Access to Finance Specialist) etc. For the last couple of years he has been running a consultancy firm in Croatia. During his career, he has been particularly active in consulting SME’s and public bodies and administration. He has participated in many internationally funded projects where he has worked alongside local municipalities and other public stake holders. At Čipčić-Bragadin Mesić and Associates, Mr Pilepić will be co-leading the business development side of the firm, but he will also be involved in the various projects whenever his banking, finance and SME’s expertise is needed to bring additional value to our clients.
Mr Pilepić commented: “I was very intrigued by the proposal to join Čipčić-Bragadin Mesić and Associates since I had never heard of a law firm in Croatia hiring an experienced non-legal executive like myself before. I’m familiar with the firm as I worked alongside them on an international banking project in the past, so I know the quality of service they deliver to their impressive roster of international clients. I believe that many synergies exist between us that can be utilised to deliver an even better client experience and service. I really look forward to participating in the firm’s development and growth.”
Silvije Čipčić-Bragadin commented: „It’s great to have Ivan in our team. We’ve worked with him on various projects and have a very positive experience. I believe he can be of great value to the firm considering his SME, banking and finance experience.”
