Leading managers introduced to the responsible business communityDecember 05, 2018
BBLF formally welcomed CEOs of new member companies and recently appointed top managers of members
At a special event titled Meet the New CEOs BBLF, this country’s most prominent and influential organisation devoted to responsible business practices and sustainable development, presented the new front-runners in its community. The event held at Grand Hotel Sofia last night was organised with the kind support of general sponsors British American Tobacco Bulgaria and Mussala Insurance Broker.
More than 100 guests welcomed the CEOs of 11 companies that had joined BBLF earlier in 2018, namely Art Winner, Astellas Pharma, BORICA, BULAUTO Bulgaria, First Investment Bank, InterContinental Sofia, KIA Motors Bulgaria, NLP Bulgaria, Oracle, Reichle & De-Massari Bulgaria Production, Vesela Ivcheva Notary Office. The recently appointed managers of members BAPRA and ING Bank Bulgaria were also introduced to the business community.
The new front-runners received their membership certificates and a copy of the Business Ethics Standard that BBLF developed in 2002 from BBLF chairman Iravan Hira. “It is a true honour to welcome so many and successful companies across industries that share BBLF’s mission of adding value to the national economy but also to the progress of the Bulgarian society. For 20 years now we at BBLF and our member companies have done our best to change Bulgaria and make it the wonderful country we all want to live in: one that provides opportunities for development, decent jobs and quality of life for us and the generations to come”, he said at the opening.
Each of the top managers had the opportunity to introduce their company as well as their personal professional experience (please have a look at their short bios). They all committed to following transparent business practices and the values of responsibility and sustainability. Greetings were also extended by Nikolay Chernev, owner of Mussala Insurance Broker.
Meet the New CEOs is in essence a networking cocktail party that enables representatives of member companies to exchange their ideas on partnership and improving the business environment.
The event ended in a raffle that featured attractive prizes provided pro bono by members Adipharm, Alliance Print, Dundee Precious Metals Chelopech, Ecopharm, First Investment Bank, Grand Hotel Sofia, Vinex Preslav.
Again, the event was hosted by TV anchor Ganiela Angelova who also hosts THE DAY ON AIR programme on Bulgaria on Air TV. We at BBLF would like to extend our gratitude to Ms. Angelova.
