The title “Outsourcing Company of the Year” is awarded for excellence, innovation and positive impact on the industry. Denitza Mihova, Group Marketing Manager, who accepted the prize, commented on its significance: “This award is very special for us because it was the outsourcing business that brought us together as a team and laid the foundations of our company. In addition to this service, we are successfully developing our own products and solutions, but outsourcing still remains an important part of our DNA.
