Raj Verma excited to embrace a new adventure and lead Laurentis’s Eastern European operations

Raj Verma and familyRaj Verma’s appetite for adventure and new opportunities is taking him across the globe and into a new role with Laurentis.

In March, Verma will move, along with his wife and three children, across the pond where he will lead Laurentis Energy Partners’ (Laurentis) operations overseas as Vice President and Managing Director, Eastern Europe. He will also manage the operations of Laurentis’s subsidiary, Canadian Nuclear Partners S.A. (CNP).

Verma joined Laurentis in 2023 as Executive Advisor and manages the company’s business development functions. As an experienced energy sector executive with an extensive background in industry operations, project management and international business development, he is the perfect fit to lead Laurentis’s business activities in Eastern Europe.

“I’m excited that my family and I can embark on this new chapter in our lives, immerse ourselves in a new culture and embrace new experiences,” Verma said. “I’m really looking forward to supporting Laurentis’s operations in Eastern Europe where nuclear energy is becoming increasingly important to address energy security.”

Laurentis has operated in Romania since 2021 and has offices in Bucharest and Cernavoda. The company is increasing its support by bringing Ontario’s CANDU experience to Societatea Nationala Nuclearelectrica S.A. (SNN) as the Romanian utility commences refurbishment at the Cernavoda Nuclear Power Plant. As a result, Laurentis is looking to hire individuals to fill a number of jobs in the near future.

“I would encourage anyone who is interested in an opportunity to live and work in a stunningly scenic part of the world and play a role in innovative, great-breaking projects to consider joining our team in Eastern Europe,” said Verma.

Nuclear sector professionals who are interested in Romania-based opportunities are encouraged to monitor Laurentis’s website for job postings.
