With over 18 years of experience in accounting and finance, Mirela Covasa is responsible for the financial management of NEPI Rockcastle.
Prior to NEPI, she spent eight years with PricewaterhouseCoopers, most recently as a Senior Manager, where she was responsible for audit assignments in various industries in Romania, Slovenia and India. She joined NEPI in February 2012 as Finance Manager and became Chief Financial Officer in February 2015.
During her tenure, the Group shifted its financing approach from asset-based borrowing to capital markets funding and group-level unsecured debt, which resulted in a significantly lower cost of funding. NEPI Rockcastle also maintains an adequate capital structure and a conservative gearing ratio, which are key to maintaining and further improving its investment-grade rating.
