About Us

Magna Development is a company of professionals with long experience in operational and financial management.

The members of our team come from different sectors like HR, agri-business, environment management, sales and marketing, construction and public administration.

Searching for excellence keeps us together and motivates our activity.


Depending on the project developed, we integrate teams of professionals capable to respond to all of the investors’ demands. We collaborate with architects, constructors, engineers, professionals on HVAC, specialists on different agri-business sectors.


Generally, whatever the investment area, we are able to set up teams of professionals having only one scope: dealing with problems, solving them and finishing the jobs we are paid for.

There is tension at the heart of the relationship between most companies and their customers.


Companies are offering better deals than ever, literally the best bargains in history. It has never been cheaper to fly from A to Z, to make a phone call from Z to A or to buy IT infrastructure. Yet the more companies raise quality and lower prices — and the more they spend on ads and promotions — the less they seem to impress their customers. All the market research arrives at the same conclusion: There is a customer-satisfaction crisis across the economy.


Here we want to be: not necessary the best in business but the only ones doing what and how we do: creating customers satisfaction.

Invoices paid.

Missing this goals throw us in useless and unappreciated ways of work.

The company was set up in august 2004 by Catalin Mustareata and Catalina Barbu. The two were colleagues at EMBA studies organized by ASEBUSS in partnership with University of Washington.


At the beginning, the services offered by the company aimed only consultancy of management focusing on the elaboration of market studies, business plans and the change management. Further, answering at the clients needs, there were added financing components and then total management of the investment.


If at the nearly beginning, the company had only three permanent employees, the staff counts at the moment 8 persons, by these ones being added about 10-15 persons with different competencies (architects, auditors of project, technologists, site’s inspectors).


We provide our services to important companies in the business field. These ones chose to invest significant resources in enlargement or to create new capacities. Their success is also for us a reason for satisfaction – although is obvious that the merit is totally theirs.

We are permanently preoccupied by the maintaining of the activities in a modern and competitive environment.


The professionalism, the adoption of the better industry standards and the utilization of modern methods – these are the core elements that concern us permanently. For instance, we believe in the power of the internet, that’s why we don’t limit ourselves only to the communication through the meanings of instant messages.


The management of projects and the editing of texts on web platforms (Basecamp and Google Docs&Spreadssheets) became a routine for us. We trust the collaborative methods, the complete partnership with the client being the main way to memorable results.
