“Nassos is a rare breed, near extinct these days. In a land where cardboard-thin business managers rule supreme in collusion with socially inept tech-crazed geeks, Nassos dares to be humane, talented, sensitive, charming -and stunningly original to boot. He is a top-tier creative, harvesting the digital domain with dazzling ease and coming up with lateral solutions at times when all others choke.”
Head of Strategic Planning at Publicis
“Nobody can be the boss of Nassos’ free spirit. I call him ‘founding member’ of the TribalDDB Athens team, meaning more than just one of the first 4 people who initiated the business in this market.”
