A word from the CTO

At Plan A, we pride ourselves on having an experienced and dedicated team, and Veselin, the CTO of Plan A, is no exception. With over 19 years of experience in software development, Veselin has held a wide range of positions in the software development field, from intern to software engineer, lead developer, software development manager, and finally CTO.

He is an expert in technology setup, development organisation, startup consulting, and software development. But that's not all that makes Veselin special.
