Between 2016 and 2018, he was the Regional General Counsel and Data Protection Officer Southern Europe at the G4S security solutions group. Before that, he was the Head of Legal and Compliance at Novartis between 2014 and 2016. Earlier still, he was the General Counsel & Business Integrity Officer for Greece & Cyprus at Unilever between 2005 and 2014 and an Associate Group General Counsel for Babis Vovos International Construction between 1996 and 2009.

I took up the role of the chief legal officer of Hellenic Post SA a Greek government-controlled group undergoing a large-scale functional and organizational transformation. I consider this as a major challenge for me – not having ever worked for a public sector employer – to support the management and the shareholder in transforming the historic and oldest Greek corporation into a modern digital and financially strong organization equipped to cope effectively with the VUCA world challenges.
