How George is building a better working world
I try to build a better working world by supporting in practice the development of the next generation of business leaders in Greece, focusing on the personal and professional growth of the people I work with, in a high-growth environment. In parallel, I try to support the growth and success of my clients who - due to their size and systemic importance - play a very important role overall to the economic development of the country. Through personally promoting and living the values of our firm, every day; integrity, teaming, and doing the right thing - not just doing things right! By passionately promoting a values-based leadership model.
