Partner & Managing Director, Athens
At BCG, Allies bring a sense of collaboration and excitement to their teams. They create an atmosphere of trust and support in which people can do their best work. Chryssos connects the dots to see the bigger picture.
The best part of working at BCG is seeing your work make a tangible contribution to organizations that shape the world we live in.
I joined BCG in 2011 after working as a project management consultant in the UK for a number of years. I am a mechanical engineer with a PhD in fluid mechanics, and I worked in aerospace with Airbus in the UK for a number of years after my studies.
This diverse background and the experiences I accumulated working with a number of different blue-chip companies in aerospace, IT, telecommunications, and financial services before joining BCG have been invaluable to me. They have allowed me to better understand the clients’ perspective, irrespective of the context and industry, by drawing parallels to similar situations. Learning never ends at BCG. I am now focused on work with financial institutions and organizational and people topics and look forward to continuously enriching that back-catalog of experiences and insights.
Chryssos holds a PhD in fluid mechanics and a master’s in mechanical engineering from Imperial College, London, and is an accredited project management professional (PMP).
