Panagiotis was born in Athens on February 16, 1966. Trying to find his professional inclination, he began his studies at National Polytechnic School of Athens as a Mineralogist, a career that wasn’t meant to be, as he dropped out after one year full of denial. He then studied Graphic Design at the Vakalo School of Applied Arts and started working as an art director for various publications. In 1993 he attended Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in London for a Masters in Communication Design that he managed to acquire, with distinction, two years later.
He has worked for over 18 years in the creative departments of major Greek Agencies like Ogilvy, UpSet!, Leo Burnett, and Cream and for more than five as a Strategic Planner at Ogilvy and Publicis. He has done both creative and strategic work for multinational clients or local brands like Vodafone, P&G, Unilever, Nestlé, Volkswagen, Mercedes, Cosmote, Aegean Airlines and NGOs like Action Aid, Doctors without Borders and others.
Since January 15, 2020 he has made a more meaningful turn and started his new career as Communications Co-Director for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
