MBA - Tutor of WSPC Wine School
I was born and studied in Athens. In 1986 when I was completing my Master’s Degree in London I was appointed to the Ministry of Agriculture. After two years of working in the public sector I decided to try my luck in the private sector. Since then and for the past 33 years – from my corner of the private sector, I have loyally been serving the wine industry from production, sales, marketing, and general management positions. I was always captivated by this product, and I am fortunate that I was able to study and work with the product I love.
