Galin, 35 years old,
Plovdiv, Bulgaria


Unmarried, without children.

He has worked for 5 years as a commercial agent of an international shipping company with a naval fleet in Varna. It deals with the transportation and import of goods in the EU. He has graduated from the University of National and World Economy. He has a 4 year internship in the state administration and has a qualification course in commercial and transport law. He speaks English and Russian and is a member of all associations.

He has accumulated many contacts in both the administration and the business. Sure good with Russians, Greeks and Chinese, and connections with the customs. He concludes large transactions for the transportation of goods and needs reliable information to impress its future business partners and convince them of the benefits of the service the company offers.

He knows that in the wholesale trade, the world is already global and its counterparts would only trust specific data on turnover, prices and terms. However, his superiors often do things the other way, and Galin needs to convince them that customers need accurate data to predict their stock turnover.

Galin is calculating, consistent and very resourceful. He is good in the negotiations and likes to highlight facts. He is known to be precise and executive. He does not shy away from boasting, but does it not with words, but with figures. Interested in politics, new technologies and mergers of large companies. He likes to predict how goods’ prices will change in the near future.

Because he works a lot, Galin leads a relatively lonely life. Likes to go to fine restaurants with colleagues, most often subordinates. Generally spends less time outside the office or at home than on social networks. One day he wants to work in a high position abroad where things are done “right”.
