We are extremely happy to announce that our team of professionals keeps growing! Welcome to Vladimir Gotchev, who will be taking the highly responsible position of Chief Financial Officer of the company!
Vladimir holds a Master’s Degree in Finance from the University of National and World Economy (UNWE), where he later chose to share his experience with first year students, taking on the role of assistant professor in Corporate Finance.
Vladimir’s professional development is in the sphere of corporate finance, private equity & venture capital, and so far he already has 15+ years of experience as a finance professional. His experience with startup businesses is particularly valuable for ONDO – he has been on the team of several regional investment funds, focusing on the development of the fund portfolio companies. Some of his responsibilities were: establishing financial control measures in high-tech portfolio companies in partnership with their leadership teams to eventually improve their bottom line, evaluating business plans and investment projects and improving the financial management at portfolio companies.
At ONDO Smart Farming Solutions, we will be working together with Vladi to further improve key business aspects of our work. Among those with highest priorities is the further improvement of the ONDO business model. Following feedback from our customers, the ONDO farming automation can now be purchased for a lower initial price, followed by annual subscription payments. This makes ONDO more accessible for farmers, while ensuring 24/7 support and upgrades for their system in the years to follow.
Another important task for Vladimir would be to help us scale ONDO to a multinational organization, by developing robust financial planning and reporting.
It was a pleasant surprise for us to find out that Vladi’s hobby is automation and robotics. Like all of us in the ONDO team, Vladi enjoys finding solutions for efficiency improvements in repetitive tasks, to achieve revenue growth and cost optimization. We are glad that in ONDO he will get the chance to turn his passion into a career! 🙂
We wish Vladi tons of success and exciting moments with ONDO – welcome on board!
