ISB has been founded in 2001 by Dr. Nikolov and was acquired by NanoWorld Holding AG on 1st April 2005.

After completing studies in Germany, USA and Japan Dr. Nikolov obtained several degrees in Business Administration and Engineering from leading universities, as well as a doctorate degree in Business Administration from the University of Sofia. Prior to the foundation of ISB, Dr. Nikolov has held positions in strategy development in the semiconductor industry, as well as positions in the university sector.

"After turning BudgetSensors and Innovative Solutions Bulgaria Ltd. into a company of significant importance for the world-wide AFM market, I look forward with enthusiasm to the new opportunities that the position as CFO of NanoWorld Holding AG opens" said Dr. Kamen Nikolov.

"Over the last years Dr. Nikolov has created from scratch an impressive and fast growing company. Since the acquisition we have consulted Dr. Nikolov on a regular basis especially in financial aspects. Therefore it is only a logical step to appoint him CFO for the NanoWorld Goup as we have challenging tasks ahead of us like further acquisitions and a demanding plan for diversification", said Manfred Detterbeck, COB and CEO of NanoWorld Holding AG.
