"YNV is a group of companies with diverse business lines spanning from premium support services to Blue Chip tech giants to real estate commercial exploitation in sites all over the world," commented Karanikola. "I was primarily attracted by this diversity in business and the vision and mission of the group to offer world-class services from primarily immersing markets such as Costa Rica, Bulgaria, Nigeria, Vietnam, Greece. The group has an amazing high-growth culture that makes anyone feel like home from day one. I have been entrusted to run a global legal team of high caliber legal professionals and will be contributing towards creating a forward-looking legal department providing world-class legal services and participating actively in the digital transformation of the YNV group which is currently driving for itself and its customers."
