Nonka Donev

Manager

Team player. Helicopter view. Attentive.

“Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future” – John F. Kennedy

I believe that change, no matter how difficult or complex it may seem at the beginning, always opens new doors and creates opportunities for a better future.

Within ACE, I bring in many years of experience in the financial service industry, along with expertise and affinity with the implementation of continually changing regulations and legislation.

I am a connector. This is in my nature. I believe that interaction and coordination within a team yields the best results.

When, after an intensive period of preparation and development, everything falls into place and the teamwork pays off in good results and clear deadlines, I feel energised.

Then, I go home, where I like to give my attention and time to my family including my two teenage sons and my friends. This is my ‘favourite waste of time”. To keep in shape I run, participate in a boot camp and play tennis.
