My profile

My studies in the field of “Economics” (where I received my bachelor’s degree with 7,78/10), as well as in the field of “Operational Management and Business Administration” (where I received my MSc with 9,15/10), have provided me most importantly with the quality of Critical Thinking. A quality that allows me to deeply analyse simpler or more complex cases and be driven to safe conclusions.
My constant vocation, both in my scientific researches (during my MSc and mainly in the scientific fields of Total Quality Management, Multi-Criteria Decision Support Systems, Credit Risk Management and Customer Loyalty) and professionally, in the fields of Sales, Business Administration, Marketing, E-Services, Customer Satisfaction and Customer Loyalty over the past 7 years, have built inside me strong knowledge on the operation and the demands of the ever-developing and ever-changing market and especially in highly competitive business sectors.

Some of my skills and expertise that I will be able to utilize in this project, are the following:
• Statistical Analysis
• Project Planning
• Business Planning
• Search Engine Optimization
• Social Media Management and Marketing
• Marketing Planning

All of the above, I was able to greatly develop through my professional career; all established in Chania – Crete:
• Assistant Director for a small firm in the retail industry
• Managing Director for an online retail store
• Junior Manager for a five-star boutique hotel
• Marketing Director for a construction company
• Social Media Manager for a small firm in the food industry
• Front Desk Officer for a four-star hotel (which has ranked first in the whole world – for couples – for the years 2012 and 2013)

Additionally, being “inside” the market and discussing with people at all times helps me understand possible needs, fears and different cultures. Every trait of me mentioned above, I believe them to be the key factors in capturing this specific innovative idea in the first place, developing and finally working it to success. Which have also helped me receive the first place in the “Youth Innovation 2014” European Competition.
