Know Agro-Know: Meet Vasilis Kourousias

Vasilis at Afjord, Norway (2013)

The Agro-Know internship program seems to be on fire during the last months; a lot of people decide to join Agro-Know in the context of an internship, during which they get to learn about Agro-Know as well as about all the work that we are doing in different fields while at the same time they offer their fresh view and ideas in the implementation of various tasks.

Vasilis Kourousias is an agronomist with previous experience in project management, who is currently supporting the Project Management department of Agro-Know. Vasilis was kind enough to take some time and provide us with his responses to our questions, which you may find right below:

Goodbye to my Agro-Know family

Almost one month ago I took a very difficult decision of moving out of Agro-Know and pursue my professional career elsewhere. After two years being part of the team, I now believe that I have fulfilled my circle in the company and is time to move on. But throughout the month, I was thinking on how much I would miss the company.

It all started two years ago when on April first 2013 (yes, on the April Fool’s day) I joined the company for the first time. As time was passing, I was more and more connected with the people here, actually living one of our values, being part of a “family”.… Click to read the full post

vprot_1

It’s been almost a year since our blog was officially launched. And in a strange way it happened that Vassilis the most active blogger, who interviewed everyone, wrote and posted about everything is still not known to the wider audience.

Vassilis is one of the most experienced Agro-Know’ers, he started his career in Agro-Know back in 2010. Somewhere in 2011 I knew Vassilis as project manager 🙂 then he changed his role couple of times, and now we know him as Marketing and Networking Manager. But besides the job titles let me say that Vassilis is the kindest person ever with great sense of humor.… Click to read the full post
