Introducing the ICARUS Sports Team
Graduated from NTUA | Greece with an MSc in Management, following a joined BSc and MSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Before joining ICARUS Sports in 2008, I was working as a project manager in the Energy Sector. As one of the founding partners at ICARUS Sports, I am currently leading ICARUS Sports as the company's C.E.O.
Even though I chose to study Architecture, my love for sailing, water and motor sports, since a young age while participating in international competitions, I found ICARUS Sports to be the ideal place for me. Since 2014, I manage the production of sailing & motor sports events, while developing the company’s motorsports fast evolving division.
I graduated from Kwantlen University in Vancouver Canada with a degree in Business Administration. My 20+ years of professional experience in international business across Europe, Asia and North America gave me the in-depth understanding in business development and operations. I joined ICARUS Sports as Sales and Operations Director of China, and I look forward to continue being part of this exciting ICARUS journey in China.
I graduated from Imperial College Business School with an MSc in Management, following a joint BSc and MSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Before joining ICARUS Sports in 2010, I was an Associate in London for LEK Consulting, a leading consultancy in the field of Business Strategy. As one of the founding partners of ICARUS Sports, I now manage the Financial Activities and Business Development.
I studied Business Administration and Shipping, while my professional experience, enhanced my skills in sales and customer care. As an active sportsman, I found the perfect environment for me in ICARUS Sports early 2018. Being involved in action sports events related to one’s passion is rare and ICARUS Sports has offered me this opportunity.
Being a passionate sailor with process-oriented thinking, made me a perfect fit for the Project Manager role, taking up the production of sports events, creating TV Shows and training the team. I strive in becoming an ambassador of what ICARUS Sports represents, that is creating content for action outdoor sports to inspire individuals around the globe.
I joined ICARUS Sports since the beginning. My undeniable passion for action outdoor sports, which I practice with any chance I get, as well as my studies and experience, gave me the basis to become part of this family, having the chance to work with active sportsmen and professionals, create exiting content and lead a highly motivated team.
During my studies in Computer Science and Information Systems, I joined ICARUS Sports in 2015, wishing to combine my passion for sailing and video production. I upgraded my filming and organizing skills, succeeding in becoming a Project Manager and taking up the TV Shows Executive Producer role, while promoting the process-oriented thinking.
