CEO of Telios
Philip Choban is the founder and CEO of the company, and the one leading Telios with all that entails strategy, finance, implementation, and marketing. His experience is rich and complex: investments, finance – banks, private placements, real estate, trade, and manufacturing. Philips has been involved in successful start-ups all over the world and has lived in Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, and Romania.
Philip moved to Romania from the United States in 2009. He came to the country at the request of his wife Carmen, who was Romanian and had been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease since 2005. He cared for Carmen until her death in 2015. It was during this time that Philip made a commitment to stay in Romania and do something to improve the access of ordinary people to a high-performance health system. Thus, Telios was born.
Philip Choban is, among others, the ambassador for Romania of the Purple Angel organization in Great Britain. The purpose of the association is to provide information and support to people who have relatives diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. He continues to be involved in Alzheimer’s education and awareness projects today.
He is also the ambassador for the HEART (Health Education and Research Talks) in Cluj-Napoca. This organization is part of UMF-Cluj and is dedicated to educating and opening the minds of future doctors. It is Philip’s belief that the students of today are the leaders and innovators of tomorrow.
