Kenes says it has pinpointed Bulgaria as a suitable new hub and gateway to support its expanding international portfolio of clients. It says Sofia is an up-and-coming destination offering good opportunities for investment, while good political and business stability is ensured by the country’s membership in the EU, NATO, and WTO.
In terms of meetings and events, the Sofia Office will be able to support a number of locations in which Kenes operates, as the country is strategically located at the heart of the Balkans. Bulgaria also provides direct access to key markets such as the European Union, CIS, and the Middle East.
Kenes said another reason for selecting Sofia as the next office location was also due to the human resource available locally – highly educated, skilled and multilingual professionals, and an average of 60,000 students annually graduating from 51 universities entering the workforce.
Dan Rivlin, CEO of Kenes Group said: "Sofia provides great additional flexibility to our growing portfolio, where now we can offer even more support to some current clients and new markets we work with."
The Sofia office will provide direct support to the operations headquartered in Tel Aviv and assist in serving the Kenes Group clients internationally, as well as the company’s business development, marketing and sales, and client management.
