Several lines about how the company was started!
Welcome to Aspect, as the new CEO I would like to share with you my story and why I accepted to partner up with Elena.
Working for a software company catering to the language industry, I was privileged to meet many interesting and fascinating individuals. I was in search of a new challenge and when I was first introduced to Elena I was really impressed by her positive and energetic charisma. She presented me with this opportunity, and it was exactly what I was looking for in a partner. We discussed our vision for Aspect and were enthusiastic to take on this new challenge to build our company where we would be the partner of choice for all Eastern European languages.

How did it start?
Immediately after graduating from University I was fortunate to find a job in a local translation agency. However, I quickly realised that, with the ideas I had, I could build a fantastic company on my own. Sitting down with my father, I discussed the localization industry and the kind of company I would like to form. He was enthusiastic, and encouraged me to follow my dream. So on March 15, 2011, I incorporated the Aspect Translation Company.
Year after year I grew the company, and in 2016, Aspect became a multi-language vendor. Our increased revenue was exerting pressure on our resources, so I flew to London to spend several days with an industry consultant. Together, we developed a blueprint for a new corporate structure which would take advantage of our MLV status, and established a time line for strategic goals. Flying from London to San Diego with a clear idea of where I wanted to take Aspect, I met Tino Melita. And the rest is history!
