I've known Giorgi for number of years now. We started as colleagues in National Bank of Georgia and went through lot of business cases together. Most recently Giorgi entered MBA program at ESM-Tbilisi where I lead few courses. I know Giorgi as an IT architect with wide and deep knowledge of technology, hard-worker and a bright person. I would enjoy opportunity to work with Giorgi in most challenging IT projects. Oh, yes, and he's one of best in class!

Mikheil Kapanadze

Giorgi is an open-minded person who gets success because of the ability to see the large picture but never miss the smallest details. Projects under his management are always well-planned. In rare situations when something may go wrong, he never loses control thus motivating other team members to do their best and get success.

Having such a colleague is both important and pleasant, especially in an organization like Public Service Development Agency with highly dynamic nature and projects which are important not only for the organization itself but the country as a whole.

Otar Danelia

Mr. Lobjanidze is a highly competent professional with an outstanding sense of 

Responsibility. Giorgi gas extraordinary organizational skills supported by various academic background and Information Technology expertise. 

I had a pleasure to work with him for a short period of time but it was enough to find him as a motivated, confident and organized professional.

George Arveladze

Chief Executive Officer at Liberty Bank

April 2010

Giorgi and I worked at the National Bank of Georgia for several years. While belonging to different teams our tasks intersected very often. Giorgi definitely has an intimate knowledge of his own subject area. However, he is able to grasp the broader picture without ommitting the details very fast, which turns the team work into being extremely effective. Given his friendly, collegiate personality coupled with the above professional strengths Giorgi belongs to very few examples of both successful and effective managers defined by modern management theory.

Lado Gverdtsiteli

Deputy Director Business Development at UGT

Jan 2016 – Jul 2017

First of all, Giorgi Lobzhanidze is a very sociable person and working with him is comfortable. His job approaches and professionalism enables you to grow as an employee, refine existing and acquire new skills, which will definitely succeed for further steps. He is a very open person, very frankness and that's the main dignity of him, accordingly, these employees around him feel comfortable of doing their job.

He is always ready for giving the right advises and directions. Despite the great theoretical and practical experiences, he is always open to different opinions as well. These qualities contribute to his employees to not get locked and to be more open to discussing issues. that attributes encourages their own staff.

During the year and a half, when I used to work with George, I learned and practiced many of his good practices especially in terms of project management. He is the head of the staff who every day feel about how do they grow up with Giorgi as professionals. 

I give this recommendation to him and think that he is one of the best professionals in his case.
