Robert Knapp

Chairman & Co-founder

Do you know those people who really stand out of the crowd for no particular reason? You just notice them first when you enter a crowded room or on the street during your morning rush to the office.

Such a person is Robert, Co-founder and CEO of CyberGhost SRL, one of those who manage being imposing and self-confident without being arrogant.

As a CEO, he sets the short, mid, and long term milestones for the company and leads the people in the right direction.He always keeps his office door open and his eyes on the revenue, just to make sure there is enough money on the account for paying the wages.

He started his own company when he was 18, and since then he was self-employed, first in music and event - business, later in IT and internet.Since then, he learned everything from his own mistakes and managed to cultivate a love - hate relationship with attorneys and accountants.

For Robert there is no need to separate work from personal life, since he loves what he's doing. In his vision they are one and the same.

He's a sucker for excel sheets with numbers, conversion rates, St. Pauli soccer team, tattoos and Italian coffee.

While he's not in his office, you're most likely to bump into him in a theater or Opera House, or accidentally spill his beer during a concert from 80's punk rock heroes like Social Distortion or Marky Ramone.

Timo Beyel


Timo is responsible for conceptual design, strategy planning, PHP back-end, databases, iOS related things, and product and project management.

He coordinates the development team, and sets the deadlines when necessary.

Among his weaknesses, you can count good food, ice cream, Apple gadgets and skilled, motivated, reliable people like his team.

Timo hardly has any spare time, but when that happens, he'd rather spend it with his wife and his son and daughter. He strongly dislikes these two phrases: "I can't" and "This is not possible!"

Oana Dima

Head of HR Department

The soul of every group and the mother of all Ghosties, Oana is always there to liven up the atmosphere when things get too tense.

Her degree in Political Sciences, International Relations and Diplomacy help her find a solution in the most challenging of situations.

She is the go-to person for any HR-related issue and has a natural knack for only choosing the most ambitious specialists in the market as CyberGhost employees. That’s why we all click so well together, because we’re so alike. Birds of a feather flock together, right?

The first to join the CyberGhost team, Oana knows all things CyberGhost-connected and is not afraid to show it. But while you may think she is a techie by nature, you may be surprised to discover her very strong artistic side: Oana is a former ballerina and piano player, who attended the classes of the dramatic art department at the Dinu Lipatti Art Highschool in Bucharest.

Patrick Arns

Head of Software Development

Meet the strong, silent type! Patient and always calm, he seems surrounded by an impenetrable shield. Working with Moritz and Timo, he always plays the role of the conciliator.

It appears that nothing can unsettle him, but just wait until the sunrise, or sunset, and you'll see him pulling out his camera, and taking the most moving and fascinating photos you are ever to see.

Patrick is in charge with CyberGhost client development, CyberGhost back-end development, Computerbild-Cloud client, and database stuff.

When he's not working, he is playing poker with his friends and taking snapshots during the Blue-Hour of the Day.

When asked about his personal bugbears, he mentions unfindable bugs.

Mihaela Neagu

Director of Sales

Mihaela studied International Economic Relations, and she holds a degree in Management of international Affairs. Her job is working on a daily basis with partners and realizing cover mounts.

If you would have to picture a childish girl with a sunny disposition, her looks would pretty much summarize everything. But don’t get fooled by her naïve, innocent appearance (we secretly think she drank at some point from the Fountain of Youth). She can be really tough when it comes to work, or defending her personal point of view on an important matter. Otherwise, she’s very Zen, and always manages to keep a positive attitude.

When Mihaela is not working she enjoys cycling and being a bookworm. I have to mention she’s also an early birdie, but I guess that’s part of the healthy life she has chosen to lead.

When asked about the things she dislikes, she didn’t have to think too much: bullies and self-important pricks.

Barbara Eglseder

Graphic Designer

Barbara is the one who brought Ghostie to life. With just one pencil slide she has the magical power of making Ghostie happy, handsome, angry, or do all sort of fun things, like scuba-dive or eat cake.

While she's not doing the graphics for CyberGhost, you can see her sketching some other things, swimming, spending time with her friends, watching Star Trek, or playing with her German Shephard, whom she describes as being "a big, clumsy monster".

She really hates having no connection to the internet, and last minute changes, after she finished her work.

Codruț Răduț

Front-End Dev

Codruț spends his time in the company designing and implementing websites and user interfaces (UI) using the latest web technologies.

If you ask him, at any given moment, what he is doing, the answer will be: "nice stuff that's easy to use".

He studied Computer Science and attended Film School, from where he left with a fascination for everything that means visual arts. He just cannot miss one single film festival, photo exhibition or theatre play.

In the end, he doesn't even know what his pet-peeves are, since he is focusing so much on the things that he likes, he completely forgets about the ones that annoy him.

Silvia Andrei

Cleaning Lady

One of the most hard-working people in the CyberGhost team, Silvia manages to stay positive at all times.

When she's not cleaning after us (we can be real litterbugs sometimes), she spends time with her 15-year old son, and reads a lot, mostly detective novels written by Agatha Christie.

Mircea Poterașu

Web Developer

Mircea is working together with the web developers, business and marketing team members to create an intuitive experience for website visitors and CyberGhost users.

He has his fair share in developing new apps and extending and improving the existing ones. He gathered all his knowledge and experience from years of heavy studying at The Bucharest University of Economic Studies, Computer Science and Economic Cybernetics.

He's spending most of his time outside the working hours travelling, reading, waching movies.

Lucian Crișan

Process & Development Manager

If you're looking for a connoisseur of all things related to CyberGhost, Lucian is your man.

He handles technology-related project management, operations and guidance, process building and standardization, as well as highly comprehensive trainings, among many others.

Lucian is the perfect example that passions can become a way of life, since technology is also a pastime to him. That is why he loves surrounding himself with gadgets.

But when he wants to disconnect, he revels in videography, photography, music production, biking, boarding, nature and personal development.

Ciprian Ciocoiu (Chuck)

Video Producer

Ciprian is in charge with Photo and Video materials. The newest CyberGhost videos, photos and tutorials are a result of his outstanding creativity and good taste.

His pastime activities include: riding his bike and relaxing through music.

When it comes to learning, he always prefers the first hand experiences, putting quite an effort into traveling and interacting with people he considers to be of interest.

Ciprian's motto is Simple is the new complicated and it perfectly reflects in his work, along with his passion for minimal and clean things.

He hates cops, had quite awful experiences with taxi drivers and is not particular keen on rainy days.

Radu Armaziu

Head of Support

An attentive listener by nature, Radu is the missing link between you, our beloved client and us, the Internet freedom fighters at CyberGhost.

In order to achieve this, Radu makes sure the team has all the necessary tools for a job well done and the best VPN service is delivered your way.

A passionate photographer, Radu enjoys taking pictures of all the fascinating aspects of the theater of life. Speaking of which, this Ghostie has quite an artistic side to discover, since in his free time, he enjoys writing scripts and making movies.

Very important aspect: if you ever think of dropping Radu a line, please mind autocorrect! One of his main pet peeves is reading "your" instead of "you're".

Alex Torac

Email Marketing Specialist

A graduate of the Fundamental Research in Marketing section of the Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies and an experienced email marketing & conversion professional, Alex is a marketing buff by nature.

If he is not attending meetings or working his conversion magic, then Alex goes to quiet places, plays the guitar and attends barbecues. He sometimes even tries all three at once.

A lover of the finer things in life, he would never say "no" to a juicy steak, some fries or a glass of cola (we're not going to tell you which brand he prefers, just ask him… He might even recite an ode dedicated to this caramel-colored drink in exchange).

PS: He's in love with the Coco...

Ștefan Iacob

Head of Business Intelligence

No short description yet.

Coming soon :)

Silvana Demeter

PR & Communication Director

Tech enthusiast, cybersecurity fan, PR professional, dog person, wanderlust sufferer and daydreamer.

Regrets, she had a few. The biggest one is not choosing a tech education. Painting with words, Silvana seeks stories in all the wrong places - eventually finds them.

Efficiently combining top notch security software promotion with the fight against censorship and freedom of the Internet, Silvana is open to any smart idea. So, bring it on and let's make the Internet a better place, where people feel safe, have their privacy protected and are free.

Andrei Ouatu

Head of IT

Modest by nature, Andrei enjoys referring to himself as the Master of the Universe.

This job title hardly does him any justice though, as, besides poking servers back into submission, he also takes care of general office IT management. Just make sure not to bug him very early in the morning, unless you want to discuss airsoft, gaming or motorcycles.

Silviu Gurlea

Tech Support Engineer

A dedicated Technical Support Representative, Silviu enjoys a job well done. Each case is a challenge to him, to which he always comes up with a great solution.

Poor customer service is his worst enemy and just the thought of it makes him cringe.

However, when Silviu wants to take it easy, blonde beer is his fuel, but black will do too in case of emergency.

Andrei Rusu

Strategic Partnerships Manager

A freakishly straightforward, yet good-humored Ghostie, Andrei always manages to surprise us with a witty remark.

For example, he insisted we include this cheeky motto in his description, so here it goes, Andrei: I will punish you with pleasure. And pleasure you with pain.

On a more serious note, Andrei's work responsibilities include channel development of partnership strategies for CyberGhost services, as well as looking for new business opportunities in international environments.

Outside office hours, Andrei dedicates most of his time to his “mini-me” (his adorable son, whom we wish he brought more often to work). Otherwise, music, astronomy, movies, traveling and, of course, sports are his preferred escape from reality, without which this world would probably be a lot more dull.

Andreea - Emilia Panciu


A fresh graduate of the Polytechnics University of Bucharest and one of the youngest Ghosties, Andreea always manages to impress us through her enthusiasm and amazing ability to bring order into chaos.

When she is not keeping track of invoices, answering e-mails or blocking naughty IPs, our diligent colleague unwinds by taking trips with her friends, watching movies, reading, going to the gym and cycling.

Daniel Sava

BI DevOps

Daniel's job involves taking care of the IT infrastructure, purchasing various pieces of equipment and sometimes even correcting peoples' finger position towards the timesheet devices.

No worries, though, when he has Bob Marley in his earphones, everything's gonna be alright! It gets even better when Daniel gets down to more relaxing activities, as gaming, partying and watching TV shows.

Dragoș Velcea

IT Manager

An experienced IT professional, Dragoş is also a master of programming and scripting languages, such as C, JavaScript, Python or Ruby.

But when he is not using such complicated words, Dragoş likes to compensate the hours spent at the office through numerous outdoor activities as driving, walking, dancing, rollerblading, skating, biking or by enjoying his favorite music and movies.

Speaking of driving, if you're ever in traffic and feel the urge to tell Dragoş something by slowing down while you're in front of him, maybe consider calling instead. Hitting the breaks in front of him is one of his pet peeves!

Alex Dănăilă

QA Engineer

Just like Bear Grylls, Alex enjoys fighting bugs with his bare hands, thus making sure that the quality of the CyberGhost apps is always top-notch.

Otherwise, he likes to compensate his love for gourmet food with some “relaxing” outdoor activities, as snowboarding, skateboarding, biking.

All in all, if you're ever in trouble, remember: "One Alex a day keeps the bugs away!".

Sorin "Berceni" Tuță

Head of QA

A dedicated and efficient bug fighter by day, Sorin has a sacred mission at CyberGhost and sticks to it no matter what.

Few know, however, of Sorin's background as a professional gamer, who has taken part in several major competitions across Europe. But when he's not taking his passions very seriously, he unwinds by going to stand-up comedy shows.

George Alexandru

Product Manager

George's job is to constantly check that our software stays in tip-top shape and that is why he always has an incorporated and efficient bug spray at hand.

However, when he is not making sure that the CyberGhost products don't go off the rails, he has a passion for everything running on rails.

As a graduate of the Rail Transport Vehicles section of the Polytechnics University of Bucharest, he takes a special liking to trains. But he also enjoys travelling by car, walking and hanging out with friends. What he doesn't like is fighting bugs while still sleepy and that is why we randomly throw coffee at him from time to time.

Corina Dobre


A professional wordsmith, Corina has improved her writing skills through extensive experiences in journalism, advertising and marketing.

Curious by nature, she enjoys learning foreign languages and discovering everything, as well as everyone around her. Music is her second nature, so don't get her started about her favorite singers, you may not see an end to that conversation.

Costa Hilohi

Tech Support Engineer

A veteran of old-school tech support in the field of Internet Security, Costa is here to help users enjoy a flawless CyberGhost experience.

With a background in fine arts, he can turn the most tedious of conversations into philosophical debates. Just ask him to join you for a beer and see for yourself!

He also loves keeping up to date with gaming news and pop-culture, and why not, taking the occasional trip to the gym. All things related to tech and gaming spark his interest and he also confesses to have seen an absurd number of movies.

Dragoș Zirbo

Head of Infrastructure Development

We often like to think of engineers as computer doctors. Well, Dragoş is living proof of that, since he's both a Med School and a Tech University graduate.

A problem solver by definition, with an extensive experience in IT infrastructure, Dragoş is here to coordinate the development and optimize release cycles of all infrastructure platforms based on business impact, among many other things.

But when he's not dealing with the inner mechanics of CyberGhost, Dragoş knows how to relax. He makes sure not to miss the city's most important events together with his friends, goes hiking, running and snowboarding.

Definitely a cat person.

Alexandra Macri

Social Media Manager

An experienced social media connoisseur, Alexandra is here to inform digital freedom lovers around the world and across a multitude of channels about the latest developments in online privacy.

Some of her other fields of interest include SEO, brand awareness and generation of inbound traffic.

The mother of a delightful little boy, whom we would love to have as a full-time mini Ghostie, Alexandra enjoys disconnecting from social media in her spare time. Her family and friends are always there when she needs to unwind and the seaside is her favorite getaway, where the waves play her favorite music.

If you want to get to know her better, you could run into Alexandra at a dance festival. Coffee could be a great conversation starter here, but whatever you do, please don't answer any of her questions with “yes, but”. That's one of her biggest pet peeves! However, maybe she'll forgive you if you ask for pictures about her Jack Russell Terrier.

Vladimir Corduneanu

Front-End Developer

Vlad is here to make life easier for CyberGhost users, by creating and implementing smart and user-friendly UIs aka User Interfaces.

Although he is currently studying Computer Science and speaks many of the magical languages of programming, he is not all about computers and gadgets. That is why he enjoys spending his free time reading sci-fi and fantasy novels, riding motorcycles and cooking. Yes, you read right – cooking. However, we, his colleagues, need some evidence of this pastime and would love to try some of his kitchen experiments. No pressure, Vlad!

We promise to even properly squeeze all the toothpaste tubes in your vicinity properly (surely not from the middle, because we know how much you hate that), if you organize a tasting session anytime soon.

Octavian Vasii

Assistant Manager

A well-organized Ghostie with an eye for detail, Octavian is responsible with the financial aspects of CyberGhost: paying suppliers on time, as well as storing and archiving invoices and payment orders.

So thanks to him, the administrative stuff is taken care of and digital freedom can be delivered all around the world!

However, we bet he's extra well-calculated with the amount of paper he uses when handling all this paper work, since he got his degree in Environmental Law at Bioterra University.

A rocker with an eco-friendly attitude, Octavian loves going to the gym and biking. Also, just like any other respectable Ghostie, Octavian has a soft spot for everything technology-related.

Or Amitai

Strategic Business Development

Valentin Stănescu

Tech Support Engineer

Although Valentin completed a degree in humanities and social sciences, most of his previous jobs were in the IT field.

His job at CyberGhost is to provide technical support to customers, addressing their questions and concerns and mainly, making sure they are happy when using our apps.

Valentin’s hobbies include video games and fighting sports, but he also finds some time to watch David Attenborough’s nature documentaries.

Valentin ticks off when he hears people claiming to be gurus in various fields and hates the so-called fancy bars that are nothing but gin mills.

Robert Wamsidel

Tech Support Engineer

No short description yet.

Coming soon :)

Mihaela Olivia Mondoc


They say an accountant is someone who does precision guesswork based on unreliable data provided by those of questionable knowledge. You could say they’re magicians.

Well, at CyberGhost, Mihaela is responsible for all the magic tricks regarding accounting activities: invoicing, analyzing and preparing accounting records, as well as bank reconciliations.

When she’s not checking the numbers, she likes to spend time with her family and each year, she dedicates a special period for an unforgettable holiday.

Cristina Jderu

Graphic & UI/UX Designer

One of Cristina’s favorite sayings is: Not all girls are made of sugar, spice and everything nice. Some are made of sarcasm, wine and everything fine…

Referring to herself maybe? You’ll have to find out on your own. What is sure though is that she loves long hiking trips, but also enjoys the seaside and if it were possible, she would travel the whole world.

Cristina studied Computer Science but fell in love with graphic design, so she decided to take this path. Currently, she is responsible for creating fun and user-friendly graphics, thus helping all departments communicate ideas through visual design and concepts. Cristina also makes sure users have the best possible experience when using the CyberGhost apps.

Tomer Ulman

Affiliate Manager

No short description yet.

Coming soon :)

Andrei Pătrănescu

Infrastructure Development Specialist

Andrei believes everyone has a sense of humour so he likes to try out a new joke every day, even if it's a bad one.

So don’t take it personally if the next joke is on you, especially since he knows when to stop and when to start taking things seriously.

His job at CyberGhost combines technical tasks with administrative duties, making sure all servers function properly while handling the infrastructure and security technologies. Otherwise, Andrei is an outdoor person and he likes to go out and grab a beer with his friends, and discover new and interesting places when he travels.

Ionuț Orzoi

IT Support

Just like any IT expert, Ionut likes to stay up to date on the latest technology trends so he's always following the news on this topic.

Speaking of news, don’t start a conversation with him about local politics because this is something he’s not interested in at all.

At CyberGhost, Ionut’s job is to make sure all IT equipment is in perfect order and some of his duties include monitoring and maintaining computer systems and networks, as well as configuring computer systems and applications. He is willing to help his colleagues in any IT-related situation though.When he’s not in front of the computer, he likes to do sports and generally, he makes sure he maintains a healthy life.

Bogdan Văcaru

Tech Support Engineer

Bogdan finished a degree in civil and industrial engineering at Technical University of Engineering in Bucharest. But somehow, he managed to pave his way towards the IT field.

At CyberGhost, Bogdan’s role is to answer users’ technical questions and provide them detailed support and advice. He diagnoses and troubleshoots technical issues such as account setup or helps customers install the application.

You can always chat with Bogdan (work-related or not), but it would probably be best not to ramble too much or else, you’ll lose him along the way and he’ll probably avoid you next time.

Alin Vlad


Working as a Customer Support Technician for a long time, Alin started to truly understand customer needs.

This was the trigger that led him to an important discovery: he wanted to make a career in marketing. Interestingly enough, before CyberGhost, he worked in various marketing positions for companies that run internet security activities, an experience which makes him just the right fit for CyberGhost.

Marketing became his passion so much so that he constantly reads books about business, marketing strategies and growth hacking. His goal at CyberGhost is to ensure all marketing efforts are successful enough to amplify the business growth and outperform the competition.

Probably during his extensive experience as a marketer, he realized that he truly dislikes shallow people and those who use fear as an excuse for not overcoming obstacles.

Dana Vioreanu

Content Specialist

Dana is in charge of all kinds of tasks related to content, such as writing articles, taking care of landing pages or getting involved in all sort of promotional activities.

Basically, just spreading good words about CyberGhost in the online world.

Even though her degree is in Sociology, which technically has nothing to do with writing, all her previous jobs implied working for websites, taking care of content and writing articles. By the way, if you’re interested in studying abroad, feel free to ask her for a few pointers, because for about two years and a half, she learned almost everything there is to know about international studies.

When she’s not spending time with her daughter (which is 90% of her free time), she enjoys reading a good book, seeing a play or watching a movie. And of course, she never misses a Disney or Pixar animation movie.

What really annoys her is The-Know-It-Alls people. Surely, you’ve met at least one, the type of people you’ve only just met and already start giving you advice about anything, although you never asked for it.

Filip Apostol

Infrastructure Development Specialist

Since he is a politics lover, Filip is great at communicating with people.

However, unlike many of the world’s politicians, our colleague spends most of his time finding solutions for absolutely anyone who requires his (technical) assistance, so that everyone gets to enjoy and use CyberGhost at its true potential.

With an eye for photography and a taste for Czech beer, Filip is a self-proclaimed full-time introvert, passionate about extremes as it seems, since he loves both very shiny as well as very matte objects.

It’s this appetency for the visual arts that makes him blend perfectly into the rest of the CyberGhost team, since there are a lot of undercover photographers among us (you know who you are, guys!).

Ulrich Brügmann

Manager of Content

Being equipped with years of studying psychology, he's responsible for the text department of CyberGhost: public relations, press communication, basic marketing, online help and content in general.

At times being a soul-destroying perfectionist, he will create countless drafts of a text, changing his mind again and again, until the words fit next to each other like the pieces of a complicated puzzle.

When he's not committing his creativity to paper, you can find him in the company of his family, hanging out in the gym or with friends, or playing with his gadgets, not necessarily in this order.

When asked about his aversions, he will tell you, that he can stand a lot, but not politicians.

Moritz Köchig

Android Software Developer

Moritz is part of the development department and works together with Timo and Patrick on the Android app.

He also helps the support with technical questions and issues and is involved in many other things that make CyberGhost such a cool service.

Whenever he gets some time off he's up for traveling with friends, gaming and even cooking. Among the things he likes are: YouTube, going to the movies, cool, nerdy tech stuff and of course CyberGhost.

Tobias Schüler

Android Software Developer

After a long day of handling Android-development tasks or coding in JavaScript, Tobias unwinds by practicing his cooking skills.

When he is not doing any of those or attending University classes, Tobias tunes down by swimming, travelling and watching his favorite TV shows. Just don't make him fill any questionnaires about himself.

Maximilian Frings

Back-End Developer

With a background in software development, Maximilian is the go-to guy for our Windows app and the PHP back-end.

However, when he is not dealing with the tech-side of CyberGhost, Maximilian is all about getting in touch with nature, by taking long, relaxing trips. If you want to invite him over for dinner, be generous with the soy sauce, but refrain from opening bottles of sparkling water in his vicinity.

Christian Wiesenäcker

Android Software Developer

Petre Rodan

IT Manager

Tech-savvy by nature, Petre spends his day at CyberGhost handling IT-related tasks, a job which he often compares to herding penguins.

This makes us believe that most of the time he loves his job, but other times he may find it to be quite a bit of a fuss, because penguins can get really noisy!

Andreas Hilgers

Web Developer

Andreas's job is to work with bits and bytes, as well to make a webpage look and interact like a real desktop application.

He manages to be both polite and spontaneous. You never know what to expect of him, but you can be sure he's going to surprise you in a pleasant way.

You can always spot him in the company of a board; whether it’s a surf-, snow-, skate- or key-board. However, when he's not in the adventure mood, he takes interest in old-school computers and consoles as well as music production, and he's quite skilled in the last one.

Erez Tamir

Head of Finance

Andreas Paland

Windows Software Developer

With a background in game design, Andreas now aims to become an expert in programming and UX design.

At CyberGhost, he continues developing his skills as his work mostly focuses on developing Windows users interfaces.

Nevertheless, video games remain his passion and sort of became his second job as he works on various game projects in his spare time. He also likes to play tabletop games with his friends or family and he watches plenty of TV-series.
