Selection Committee for the Position of


Governor of the National Bank of Moldova
162 Stefan Cel Mare Blvd.
Chisinau, MD-2073, Republic of Moldova
Tel: +373 (22)23-33-52
Via e-mail: guvernator.bnm@parlament.md

February 20,2016
Dear Members of the Selection Committee:

Thank you for providing the opportunity to apply for the position of Governor of the National
Bank of Moldova. As evidenced in the enclosed CV and supporting documents, I believe I can
significantly contribute both to the National Bank and to the banking industry of Moldova given
my background as a Wall Street executive and international investor, as well as my strong desire
to give back to Moldova in this difficult time with my knowledge and expertise in global finance
and banking.

After graduating from Harvard Business School in 2001, I spent the last 15 years working on
Wall Street initially as a banker at Merrill Lynch (now part of Bank of America), one of the
world's largest financial institutions, and then as an international investor deploying private
equity funds in financial service companies in North America, Europe and Asia. While at Menill
Lynch, I was fortunate to serve in many areas within the bank, including providing M&A advice
in Investment Banking Group; making commercial loans in the Capital Markets Division;
investing more than $5 billion of Menill Lynch's capital in financial services companies and
structured assets while a Director in Principal Investments & Structured Finance Group;
monetizing Menill Lynch's investments in public markets through Sales & Trading division; and
dealing with financial partners through Menill Lynch's Private Wealth Management Group.
Working across various service lines and with different financial products provided me with
unique hands-on experiences and valuable insights into Merrill Lynch's operations, namely:

how to set incentives and align interests to ensure that different groups within the
bank operate effectively;

how to determine capital and liquidity requirements, assess risks, value

assets,

raise and allocate capital;

how to conduct due diligence on potential clients or investment targets and how to
deal with investigation companies, including Kroll;

how to ensure regulatory compliance and how to work with government regulators
such as the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the regulator and
supervisor of all national banks in the US; the US's Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC); as well
as the UK's Financial Services Authority (FSA) (currently, the Financial Conduct
Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority).

Motivation Letter

While working in New York and in London, I had the opportunity to be in the midst of and
learn valuable lessons from the two global financial crises: the 2001-2002 "technology bubble"
meltdown and the 2008-2009 Great Recession, when seemingly healthy global financial
institutions rapidly vanished and others had to be bailed out to stabilize the financial system.
Some of the major lessons leamed during these times relate to, among others:

the effects of monetary and fiscal policies, as well as of the actions taken by
Govemment authorities' in different countries to stabilize their financial systems and
restore trust to their banking sectors and financial markets;

in financial institutions' corporate governance to ensure more transparency


and accountability to stakeholders; avoid conflicts of interest and breach of trust
changes

situations;

.
.
.

changes in capital and reserve requirements to ensure financial stability;

changes in lending standards, reporting and disclosure requiremelts to improve the


quality of assets, reliability of funding sources, and cash flow visibility;
changes in banking industry compensation structure, corporate culture and work ethics

aimed at aligning short- and long-term interests and reducing the amount of unethical
behavior and fraud in the system.

All

these experiences could be directly applied to remediate the existing state of affairs

in

Moldova's banking sector, which is under a significant amount of stress caused not only by global
macroeconomic circumstances, but also by poor corporate governance, misalignment of interests,
corporate fraud, and inefficient oversight, among others.

If elected to the position of Governor, I am confident that both my work

experiences and

my macroeconomic analysis, financial and investment management skills acquired during all
these years, coupled with my management abilities, would allow me and my team to develop and
implement changes that would restore trust and bring stability to the banking system in Moldova.
Once again, thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you
soon.

Kind Regards.
