I decided to become an hotelier from the first moment I entered this industry at the age of 14. Despite the demanding hours and the work pressure, the spirit to exceed guests’ expectations, my passion for hotels and the enthusiasm to deal with people from different cultures determined my future career. 

What I enjoy the most in my role as a CEO is the continuous training and development of new leaders who I consider to be the most valuable asset within our company. The most rewarding aspects of my job are when I receive positive comments from our guests and also constructive feedback from our valuable clientele on how to refine our services.  

I would recommend students who are interested in joining this exciting profession to be passionate, but to also have patience and resilience. Their vision to become a GM may take a number of years together with a lot of personal effort and sacrifice. I would advise students to learn continuously from their mistakes and celebrate every single successful step of their long career path.

The most exciting moment of my career was when I became the General Manager of the Amathus Beach Hotel, at the age of 34. I was the youngest GM on the island for such a luxury property! Such early success created in me some fear and stress due to my personal commitment and dedication, but also excitement to lead this reputable company forward into a more profitable and sustainable state.
