Meet Our AWS Ambassador: Ivaylo Vrabchev

We are proud to announce that HeleCloud’s Head of Professional Services, Ivaylo Vrabchev, has been selected by Amazon Web Services as an APN Ambassador. AWS Partner Network (APN) Ambassadors are skilled cloud practitioners, employed by APN Partners, who have shown a passion for developing and sharing AWS technical expertise. Ivaylo will join a select group of global AWS specialists in the APN Consulting Partner ecosystem who are passionate about contributing their technical knowledge to the community.

In his new role, Ivaylo will be responsible for ensuring that HeleCloud is able to deliver AWS’ rapidly evolving capabilities to our customers, as well as handling the design, migration, and implementation of AWS workloads for our customers. His status as an ambassador will mean HeleCloud can further embed itself within the global AWS community. This can take the form of publishing thought leadership materials, best practice guidance and even detailed technical write-ups.

“We are very proud of Ivaylo’s achievement. As a business, HeleCloud continually strives for excellence, and for Ivaylo to be selected for such a prestigious accolade, is a credit to his hard work and expertise. This achievement will help us ensure our customers benefit from the latest and greatest innovations within the wider community.” – Dob Todorov, the CEO at HeleCloud.

The programme will give Ivaylo the opportunity to collaborate with AWS Solution Architects, expanding his deep expertise of the AWS platform into new areas and enabling him to further help address specific customer question.

Signed, sealed, now we can deliver.

Knowledge, power, influence. Through this ambassador programme, Ivaylo will be able to gain additional industry-recognised certifications, badges, go-to-market (GTM) support, and networking opportunities, that will enable his HeleCloud team to showcase our exceptional AWS expertise to help our customers.

This is because ambassadors are in constant communication with each other, sharing common pitfalls, challenges and, of course, solutions based on their combined portfolio of AWS customers. Thus, all AWS ambassadors can be unified in their approach, making customer-based decisions more impactful.

Ultimately, the insights that Ivaylo will gain from this programme will enable HeleCloud to provide more targeted and beneficial content for our customers, while also assuring them we are aligned with the needs or a global and diverse customer ecosystem.

A look ahead at Ambassador journey.

The journey ahead has an exciting outlook. As well as focusing on his professional development and that of the HeleCloud team, Ivaylo will now be able to contribute to the advancement of the AWS community. Engaging with expert practitioners in this way enables HeleCloud to ensure its certifications reflect real-world needs.

Ivaylo’s announcement couldn’t come at a better time as HeleCloud has recently gained AWS MSP partner status, which validates our expertise in helping customers achieve success in all phases of the AWS cloud adoption process. This acts as a “Quality Stamp” for current and future customers, reassuring them that they are working with a trusting and leading partner, sitting in AWS’ top 1% of premier partners.

“I am constantly striving to further develop my skills and knowledge, exploring new and challenging aspects of the Public Cloud landscape. This programme not only provides HeleCloud with greater internal visibility within the AWS community but also helps all HeleCloud teams solve complex and technical customer challenges. This is thanks to the deep knowledge pool facilitated through the programme and its strong collective of global AWS ambassadors. This really motivates me. Being able to do all of this within the framework of the APN Ambassador Programme is so rewarding. It’s great to be recognised as an Ambassador and I’m looking forward to the next stage of the journey.” – Ivaylo Vrabchev, Head of Professional Services at HeleCloud.

While Ivaylo will actively be involved in the global APN Ambassador community, he will also continue to drive HeleCloud’s progress as an AWS Partner, delivering tangible benefits to our team, and our customers.
