Ion Tiriac was born in Transylvania which earned him the nickname “Count Dracula”. As a tennis player, his most notable feat was winning the French Open Doubles championship with Ilie Năstase in 1970. After retiring from the pro circuit, this Romanian first went into managing other top professional tennis pros such as Boris Becker.
Following the collapse of Communism, Mr. Tiriac founded “Banca Țiriac” which was the first private bank in Romania.
