- Assarel-Medet JSC has its
traditions established in corporate social responsiblity and this is very important to me since it enables us to
change together in a better aspect. No company today can call itself modern or
successful if it is not socially responsible regardless of the technologies
which it has at its disposal or the financial and economic results it
- I accept The Fisherman and the
Golden Fish as an acknowledgement for
Assarel-Medet’s contribution but also as a vision of the social responsibility
meaning. Social investment must change the environment, it must assist people
but also hold out new prospects to them, including teaching us how, as a
society, we can “catch fish” ourselves instead of relying on someone else to
make our dreams come true.
- I measure my achievements with my own ambition and the
goals which I set to myself but also with the smiles of people around me.
- I came
back from London to work in Panagyurishte because I listened to my heart.
- I felt I
am a leader when
I realized that the future of thousands of families depends on the decisions
which I am to make.
- In this
world of hectic changes, a business leader is the person who sets the direction and
inspires the others.
- The most
important lesson which I learnt from my father is that the meaning of human
life is to leave a better world behind us.
- The secret
for Assarel-Medet’s success lies in good traditions, a good
team, a good vision for development.
ambition for Assarel-Medet and its subsidiaries is that we develop mining
industry of a new generation.
- Responsibility – to the law and our
conscience, to the people of the team and the society.
investments which a company makes demonstrate whether it invests in the future or is focused on its
short-term financial benefits.
- Care for nature means to give your children health and inspiration.
- My vision
for my hometown: We are to demonstrate that
in a Bulgarian municipality people are doing things at a world level, that
mining industry is innovating and that it is worth working in such a way which
will make several generations after us say: I feel happy here.
- The most
valuable asset in the treasure house of Panagyurishte are its people – proud, intelligent, successful.
- My style
of management: My father used to say that
there are two styles of management – one which guides the company and people
towards success and leadership positions and the other which fails to do this. I hope that
the results of the companies in which I occupy leadership positions manifest
the first management style.
for the eyes is what we create in terms of economic contribution, jobs, social projects and
more happy people around us. The invisible is the infectious example and culture to share our
success with anyone around us and our future generations, the emotion to enjoy
what we have created together.
business philosophy in one sentence: One reaches a goal not by hurrying to it but by never
stopping and making people follow you.
- The maxim
which reflects my outlook on life: Even the longest journey starts with a first step.
- In order
to maintain intensive inner charge, I find a lot of joy in my moments spent with my family
and the balance between work and sport.
we shall not stop dreaming, making plans and make the world around us a better
