It was great to meet with Yiannis when I was serving as VP & Managing Director Eastern Europe and Russia at Bacardi.
We often hear how success comes from bringing together great ideas with excellent execution. This may sound like a cliche, but in my experience no matter how bright an idea is, it will not go anywhere unless the right path and the right network take it there. It is of course possible to try things and see if they work, but it is much easier and more effective to work with the people who have the experience and the connections to help your get there. This is the strength that Yiannis and C2XL can bring to any successful launch, exponential growth or daring turnaround.
I had the priviledge of working with Yiannis very closely for several years. He impressed me with his permanent strive for improvement which is coming up in all he is taking on and with his determination to succeed, which he is keeping passionately at very high standards. His commercial skills are at unquestionably high levels and he is a true and recognized leader of his teams.
I fully trust his advice.
High integrity and passion for excellence. That’s what I think first, when I hear about Yiannis. And I am very excited to see him expanding his interests beyond Corporate and towards SMEs, innovation and entrepreneurship, including the Environment industry as well. An industry of a great potential, but also of a high need for professionals of very high standards, such as he.
