Mr. Pashaliyski esablished ForexJobs.bg in Sofia, Bulgaria in November 2015 alongside a series of FX industry professionals as an agency which recruits for the FX and binary options sector.

Like many successful entrepreneurs in this industry, Mr. Pashaliyski is an alumnus of BMFN, where he was an Investment Consultant between March 2011 and September 2012.
