Giorgos Spathis

Head of Operations

Giorgos is our Head of Operations in the recruitment department and the go-to person for anything new that comes up.
New projects, new countries, new teams or new processes? He’s got you covered!
Team-oriented, time-efficient and target-driven, he is always trying to get the best out of everyone & everything, so that we achieve our goals.
Always in for a hike, a scuba dive, a gym session, and of course food!!

Strengths

Quits only after the game has ended. 
 

Weaknesses

Multitasking? Definitely not his thing. If he works on something, it is your time to laugh at him with all your heart! He will never pay attention to you.

Do yogurts expire? For Giorgos, of course not!! 
Let’s eat one from February (we are currently in June)

HR & Payroll Manager

Konstantinos Drachmanis

HR & Payroll Manager

Konstantinos creates the appropriate conditions and sustains the balance so that our company and its services maintain the high quality standards.
He is really keen on dealing with all issues, whether they concern the employees or the operation of the business and he ‘only’ looks for the most suitable solution!
When he is out of office, you can find him on some Greek island, just take a sneak peek at his social and get in the boat..!

Strengths

You will never find him in a fury, he has the ability to remain calm even under the most difficult and stressful situations.

Weaknesses

He is generally easygoing… but he wants the next company event to be totally different from the last one. Even though the last event was perfect, he wants this one to be even better. 
If perfectionism had a face, it would be his.

Fun Fact

No one has ever seen him wearing a t-shirt, he probably sleeps with his shirt on.
