Tudor Borlea

Collibra Product Specialist, CIPP/E


udor has spent the past 12 years gradually moving from IT focused roles like software implementation and integration towards more Business focused roles like business analysis and management consulting. The one constant throughout was that he enjoyed helping institutions bridge the understanding gap between Business and IT. As a Management Consultant, Tudor was fortunate to work in several large Business Transformation programmes, across various industries, experiencing first hand the change management challenges around process, organisation, data, applications and technology. When done right, Data Governance can be the answer to most of these challenges.

Since joining Collibra, Tudor has focused on the GDPR and other regulatory applications of Data Governance, becoming a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/E) in the process.
