Successfully managing various multi-faceted business interests from National Security, to consumer non-durables, and property development, Ralitza has over 30 years of experience in management roles, in wide ranging sectors from, government to large corporates, prior to starting her own business.

A qualified double Masters in ‘Political Science’ and ‘National Security’, Ralitza’s work for inclusion of Bulgaria into European Union was an early highlight of a visionary leader, with capability to negotiate and deliver ‘larger than life’ initiatives for her country.

Working with other partners, she also set up Gold Coastway Limited, a company funding IT Security initiatives globally.

Today, Ralitza successfully chairs various business interests from Consultancy to deployment of national level IT security solutions. In 2009, during the slowdown of the financial markets globally, Ralitza eyed an opportunity to enter the UAE property market. Today, her company Indesign Development handles projects with net worth of over AED 500 Million, and rapidly growing.

Ralitza is a strong believer in the natural therapy and wellness business. Her recent venture ‘Nirvana Retreat’ in Ras Al Khaimah has received rave reviews and offers ‘alternative therapy’. Ralitza and her team is busy working on setting up 5 more healing hotels in Asia over the next 5 years.

Ralitza is also the largest individual shareholder in Sunways Global, a company focused on sustainable solar energy to power the farms and rural areas of India.
