Q: In which educational institutions did you study?
A: I graduated from the University of National and World Economy, majoring in Economics and Trade Management, and although I have no other diplomas, I can say that I have not stopped studying since then.

Come to think of it, there are still a lot of unpeeled onions if you want to find them…

Since 2008 I have been a consultant on economic and financial issues of the five-star aparthotel “Lucky Bansko” in Bansko. I am currently a Chairperson of the Supervisory Board of Nord Holding AD. I am a founder and partner in the online stores kidso.bg and bebso.bg, specializing in the sale of goods for children from 0 to 14 years.
