Dimitris Kleftakis, Partner at AIMS International Greece, has been elected as Vice President EMEA with responsibility for the Eastern Europe and Eurasia sub-region. He succeeds Lenka Písačková, Managing Partner at AIMS International Czech Republic, who has held the position successfully for 3 years.
“I feel honored to receive the confidence of our General Assembly in Paris and highly committed to contribute towards the accomplishment of our organization’s goals in the region. Eastern Europe and Eurasia is a region with many opportunities and challenges for AIMS International. There are local markets with diverse conditions and special characteristics, and at the same time, demand for high-quality services from local and international clients are growing rapidly. Our main challenges include reinforcement of local partners, further regional alignment and development of our presence in new countries,” Dimitris Kleftakis said.
Grégoire Depeursinge, Executive Vice President EMEA, commented: “Dimitris is the ideal candidate to build bridges between East and West and especially extend our operations in the Balkan area and CIS markets. Greece’s strategic position on the map and the fact that AIMS Hellas has been successfully providing business to other AIMS Partners throughout the EMEA region confirms his election as an excellent choice.”
Dimitris comes from the Management Consulting industry where he held various managerial roles and was engaged in projects in the fields of Corporate and Project Finance, Debt Restructuring, Corporate Re-organization and Business Development. He has worked in several business sectors and gained in-depth knowledge of the business models and the key value drivers in these sectors. He has studied Economics and holds a MSc. in Economic and Business Strategy from the University of Piraeus, Greece.
He joined AIMS International Hellas in 2016 as a Partner and is also a member of the organisation’s Global Industrial practice. His personal strength lies in his capacity to quickly grasp clients’ business needs and propose value adding solutions.
