Phi Partners’ New Cloud Centre of Excellence opens in Sofia


Phi Partners is delighted to announce the opening of the new Cloud Centre of Excellence (CCOE) in Sofia, Bulgaria, which will host its Professional and Managed Service teams. The CCOE will be locally managed by experienced team leader Ivaylo Vrabchev under the guidance of Practice Head Nikos Terizakis.

Sofia is home to a vibrant Public Cloud community and a multitude of highly-educated, technology-focussed professionals who can play a major role in Phi’s ambitious growth plans, making it a perfect location for the team.

As part of Phi Partners’ commitment to excellence, the office will be certified to the very highest security standards. Phi has installed the latest in biometric access technology, and 24/7 surveillance will ensure a maximally secure environment from which to deliver our Cloud services. 

With Ivalyo’s experience in leading and growing technology teams and establishing best industry practices, we anticipate the Sofia CCOE will become a force to be reckoned within the Capital Markets vertical.

Ivalyo possesses an array of key technical skills, and is well versed in the complete technology lifecycle, from design and implementation to maintenance and enhancement. He’s established himself as a leader within the European AWS community through his writing, public event presentations and training courses, and in 2021 was recognised as an AWS Ambassador.

Ivalyo said: “As Phi extends its reach to Bulgaria, we embark on a new chapter of innovation and collaboration in the financial industry. With our new Cloud Centre of Excellence, we amplify our commitment to harnessing local talent, empowering our customers, and cultivating success. Together, let’s redefine possibilities and shape the future of the financial industry with cloud.”
