Denislav: work and live in the present moment
Seven years ago, Denislav’s journey at Strypes started with an interview with the founder Koen van Wijk and Todor Marinov who is now the current CEO. This interview impressed him and he still remembers it. Denislav shares that what made him join Strypes was that he was asked about his personality a lot. “They asked me where I saw myself in 10 years and I told them that I wanted to build a family and also build a house.” Even today, Denislav still holds that dream and plans to achieve it, looking for the perfect place. “For me, building a house is an intimate experience, especially when I want to do it myself.”
