I am Kostas
All through my career, I have always been guided by three simple principles:
1. Customers are always right and deserve the utmost respect and truthfulness.
2. Creating shareholder value should not be diametrically opposed to providing the best customer experience and service.
3. No matter how long I have been doing this, it is always a privilege to be employed in the security industry. What we all do every day, matters.
I have over 20 years experience in global sales, marketing and product development, with domain knowledge in security systems, access control, digital video, transmission systems and video surveillance.
From my humble roots on a small island in Greece and all through my career travels, I always come across the same business principles: People prefer to do business with people they like, trust and care about.
WHAT I KNOW
I speak a couple of human languages: English-Spanish-Greek-Portuguese and a few technology and business dialects: Sales-Marketing-Product Marketing-Surveillance-Security-IP.
I have a calming effect on people.
I love soccer, but I am a terrible player.
I have big ideas.
I am good at putting out fires…but I would rather create something new instead.
