In 1978 he took over the family business, which was founded in 1908 representing metal and steel product manufacturers, whereas in 1990 he established MYTILINEOS Holdings Group, which has evolved into the largest private group in Greece in the sectors of power and gas, metallurgy and mining, and EPC projects, with a turnover of more than €1.5 billion in 2018.
Through strategic decisions, he expanded the company’s operations by acquiring the majority of the shares of the listed specialized construction company METKA S.A., as well as Aluminium of Greece, eventually making it the largest vertically integrated alumina and aluminium producer in Europe.
