Her highest degree is a MSc in System Engineering and Management and she has complemented her soft and hard skills with a series of courses and trainings.

Being the liaison with top management, she plays an important role in the implementation and management of Apogee's operational plans.

Vasso Tsiakiroudi
Learning Officer, Senior Analyst

Vasso has the diverse functions of Quality Assurance Manager, Developer and Analyst at Apogee. As she describes success as a sense of fulfillment on every level including all professional and private aspects, she is capable of mastering and balancing these multiple functions elegantly and efficiently. Her quiet and soothing personality fits the saying 'still waters run deep'.

In fact, professionally, she is a very gifted trainer of Apogee Essence WCMS proven by only positive feedback she receives from Apogee’s clients. Her talent and experience allow her to spontaneously give a tailored class. In private, she is playing ping pong successfully, her team won important national and international competitions. She likes working at Apogee due to the team spirit as she feels free to express herself in front of her kind, nice, and talkative teammates.

Vagelis Tsikalas
Creative Officer

Being in a state of constant evolution, Vaggelis describes himself as an ‘average graphic designer with better taste than some others’. At Apogee, he is considered a creative genius, the best designs having been drafted and developed by him, for example http://www.bottaccio.co.uk/. As he has a degree in web development, he would rather regard himself a Senior Web Developer. His modesty is but an indication of his true artistic talent that cannot be awarded or taken by any degree.

He loves spending his time with people he loves. Being mostly self-taught and self-made, he is always updated about the most recent technological developments. The Greek name Vaggelis means ‘angel’ in English. Anyone spending some time around him and explaining any design, hardware or software problems to him, will agree that this name perfectly suits him.

Maria Prospathopoulou
Quality Assurance Manager

Maria continuously demonstrates her three main strengths: result-orientation detail-orientation and client-orientation. This renders her the ideal Quality Assurance Manager for Apogee and Apogee’s clients who come to her with specific requests. Her definition of success is self-realization and reaching her goals in all areas of life, be it professionally or privately.

She is an excellent listener and it is important for her to be understood, making her a skilled communicator. The respect for boundaries is very important to her. This is why seems to be rather introverted when meeting someone for the first time until she understands her clients. Her way of working is that she listens to Apogee’s clients feedback, analyses the problem, finds the solution and communicates the results.

Lefki Koliou
Administrative Services
With an educational background in Computer Science and her charming character, Lefki is the perfect administrative support of our team.

Having strong organisational skills and attention to detail she assists in daily office needs and manages Apogee’s general administrative activities. Lefki's pleasant personality and team spirit make her a valuable asset. Always honest and willing, she ensures the efficient and smooth day-to-day operation of our office.
Xenofon Kontargyris
Legal and Tenders Officer
Legal Advisor and Assistant to the MD, Xenofon is an international commercial Attorney in Law trained in Greece, Belgium and the USA. As a talented multi-tasker, success for him is to engage in all the many diverse activities he is interested in every day. Just as normal people need to eat five fruits/vegetables a day, Xenofon thrives on engaging in his five favorite activities a day. Apogee allows him the mobility he is seeking, a combination of technical, business and legal issues, be it in-house or traveling and meeting clients.

His name means “the polyglot” and he keeps surprising his colleagues with his knowledge of the foreign languages English, German and French that he already used as a journalist, online editor and communications manager for private companies and the European Commission. His witty and sarcastic humor spread his constant smile to the people around him. He likes to spend time outdoors playing tennis or going out with his friends.
