Bozhidar’s passion for technology and innovation led him to discover Volacom back in 2013 while he was still studying. Eventually, he graduated Sofia Technical University with a gold medal and BSc degree in Mechanical engineering, and became part of a scientific research project team, developing underwater technology with the Orebro University in Sweden. In 2015 he came back and officially joined the Volacom family, first as an R&D engineer, then as CTO, responsible for turning ideas and concepts into designs, prototypes, and technological masterpieces.
