Global real estate network, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World (LeadingRE), has announced it is expanding services in the EMEA region with the appointment of Hristo Bushev as Director of Business Development (EMEA). Hristo, who is based in Sofia, Bulgaria will be responsible for expanding LeadingRE’s network across Europe, the Middle East and Africa with a particular focus on eastern European countries.

In his most recent role, Hristo worked for AG Capital, the parent company of Unique Estates in Sofia, Bulgaria specialising in brand partnerships and research. His impressive employment history also includes jobs at The Ministry of Energy of Bulgaria and advertising giant Saatchi & Saatchi. Growing up in the family of a UN ambassador, Hristo has lived in the US, Mexico and India and is fluent in English and Spanish as well as his native Bulgarian tongue.

He brings over 15 years of professional real estate experience and a wealth of knowledge across sales, research and business brand-building to the role. EMEA is a very exciting market and I’m looking forward to working with Hristo as we look to expand our presence in these regions – particularly eastern Europe. His out-of-the-box thinking and ability to speak three languages will make him a great addition to the global team, especially during these difficult economic times.’’

Hristo Bushev commented: ‘‘I am thrilled to be joining LeadingRE, a business with an outstanding reputation across the international real estate industry. I am passionate about building global partnerships and cannot wait to bring my energy and enthusiasm to help LeadingRE expand in the EMEA region.
