On May 13th, 2021, AmCham Bulgaria Board approved Luka Chichov’s nomination for a Co-Chair of the Healthcare Committee of the chamber.
Luka’s nomination was made by the Healthcare Working Groups thanks to his demonstration of excellent leadership and strategic skills over the past year. His personal and team engagement with the AmCham Bulgaria “Healthcare as an Investment” Report positioned him as a true supporter of this cause and priority of the chamber, namely – the healthcare sector transformation.
Healthcare Committee Development
Luka takes the relay from Kostas Papagiannis, MSD Bulgaria, in the Co-Chairing of this committee. Back in 2019, both Kostas and Ruslana Toncheva, Jansen (Johnson & Johnson) jointly restarted the work of the Healthcare committee. Thanks to their leadership and engagement, combined with the experience, management excellence and stamina by Sava Todorov, MSD Bulgaria, and Boryana Alexieva, Jansen (Johnson & Johnson) who organized the work of two working groups, the committee created an internal community and knowledge-oriented approach within the chamber, who resulted in the draft of the “Healthcare as an Investment” Report in 2021.
