Giorgos Kyrkos
Revenue . eCommerce . Strategist

Well educated professional that he is always striving to achieve his targets by respecting his values. Confidence,self motivation and passion are the 'must characteristics' of a business oriented professional.On 2010 i took the decision to re-brand myself and join hospitality. This challenging business trip is more than interesting and full of valuable experiences.

UPDATE: Since 2011 i have been travelling and working in several countries (Switzerland, Jordan, China, United Arab Emirates, Greece). I have met/interacted with lot's of people in multicultural environments and faced many challenges. I still love travelling and honestly speaking i do enjoy this alternative life style. #eCommerce #RevenueManagement #DigitalMarketing is definitely my pathway to success.

I am looking forward to embarking in a new challenging career trip very soon.
