Know Agro-Know: Meet Vassilis Protonotarios

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

Know Agro-Know: Meet Katerina Galani

Wearing a helmet during the first days at the office is not a bad idea!

Back to the Know Agro-Know series after a short break! Getting back from our summer vacations and settling back to the office, this time we are interviewing Katerina Galani, the most recent addition to the AK Project Management team. Katerina went through the same interviewing process with the rest of the team members and the response we got from her can be found right below!

 

1. You are one of the latest (if not the latest!) persons to join the AK team. Would you like to share some info on how you found us and what drew your attention in the AK job opening ?Click to read the full post

Know Agro-Know: Meet Stauros Gkinis

When I went through the short interviews of the AK team members taken so far (and published through the blog), I realized that the technical team was not well-represented…and the last person interviewed from this team (Thodoris Mathioudakis) only provided his feedback after he left the AK team! So I decided that I will need to  go after the remaining AK members of the technical team and try to get their responses as well. In this context, I have the pleasure to present to you Mr. Stauros Gkinis, one of the initial team members of the technical team (and probably the tallest now!), who had some interesting things to share with us – unfortunately he did not reveal too much!… Click to read the full post

This time we have a special interview, as our “victim” is the first intern to make it to Agro-Know in the context of the Internship Programme that we publish every now and then. Athina Makri is currently supporting the AK Admin department and facilitates the existing processes with her experience and energy! She was kind enough to share information about herself with the Agro-Know team through a detailed email and she was also kind enough to provide her feedback to our usual questions, which follow in the form of a mini-interview.

Know Agro-Know: Meet Thodoris Mathioudakis

Thodoris_Mathioudakis

This time we have a special interview about a special person; Thodoris Mathioudakis was a member of the Agro-Know team for almost two years but he recently decided to explore new opportunities and try something a little bit different. Thodoris is an Electrical and Computer Engineer, with experience in Software Development, using J2EE and web technologies, focusing on Human Computer Interaction, UX and UI evaluation and design. Apart from that, Thodoris has been one of the most hard-working and appreciated AK team members and great guy to hang out with!

The interview was supposed to be published before Thodoris left the AK team; however, due to tight schedules and time limitations, we only now managed to coordinate and have his responses published at the blog.… Click to read the full post

Know Agro-Know: Meet Madalina Ungur

Isle of Anglesey

It has been quite a long time since the last time we interviewed one of the Agro-Know team members for the blog; this time, we have the pleasure to discuss with Madalina Ungur, one of the Business Development team members and a remotely-working colleague of ours. We only rarely have the opportunity to meet Mada in person, so we asked her to provide her feedback to our questions, which you may find right below!

Know Agro-Know: Meet Effie Tsiflidou

Effie

This time we get to know a little bit more about Effie Tsiflidou, one of the initial members of the Agro-Know team; thanks to her background as an Information Scientist she has a core role in the data team of AK, which she is currently leading. She has evolved during the last years from an all-around player to a focused team leader, which put an increased number of responsibilities and organizational tasks on her shoulders – still she’s doing just great with that!
