Nasko Filchev is Strypes’ COO and is one of the first people to join the company after Koen van Wijk founded it in 2008. Nasko graduated and worked in Germany, but he wanted to go back to his home country, Bulgaria. He then discovered a job ad posted by a small company that was just starting out. There was a huge potential for growth and Nasko knew that by seeing the business model. He saw the potential in Koen as a founder, who had the knowledge and expertise to expand the company and build a strong link between its Bulgarian and Dutch branches. Nasko never felt the need to change jobs as his work at Strypes was dynamic enough. For him, Strypes was an organisation in constant development.
