Vassili is a true modern Renaissance man, with a wide breadth of academic and professional experience. He began his studies in Paris, at Ipesup and at Paris II law school. After moving to Athens, he got a BA in Communications at the American College of Greece and also graduated in Greek literature at the School of Philosophy of the University of Athens.
A watershed moment in his life however, was his participation in the Athens 2004 Olympics, an experience that, as he would tell you, completely changed his life. Throughout his involvement, which spanned a total of 4 years (from 2002 to 2006), he served as editor in chief of the official French Website of the 2004 Olympic and Paralympic Games, administrator of the trilingual digital communication department, as well as close collaborator with the Communications Bureau, the International Relations Department and the International Media Desk. He headed the security, medical services and environment sections of the trilingual official Olympic and Paralympic website.
His first professional experience was at the Paris office of Skadden Arps law firm but his business development skills were built when Vassili became the Business Development and International Activity Manager for renowned French architect Guillaume Alan from 2007 to 2015 in Paris and London. He is also the founder and editor-in-chief of polymeris.org, a trilingual website and newsletter on international organisations.
He joined the Interweave team as a Business Development Manager in Paris, starting our activity in the markets of France, Belgium and Switzerland. He had previously collaborated with Interweave as an editor-in-chief for all our French content and we are happy to have him on board as a member of our team this time around!
Vassili is also an avid traveler, having travelled to every continent of the globe. He speaks five languages, enjoys a bit of football, basketball and snowboard and he has, since as far as he can remember, a passion for the cinema.
“Sing to me, Muse, of that man with so many different skills who has traveled widely.”
