The commercial activities of the group companies encompassed hotels and resorts ownership, a dining, entertainment and leisure arm, hospitality logistics services, as well as asset management and advisory services.
Commencing in 2015 and until 2019, Yannis had the opportunity to serve the Boards of Directors of RAK Hospitality Holding and RAK National Hotels as an Executive Director and three State Owned Enterprises (SOE’s) in Ras Al Khaimah and Georgia as a Non-Executive Director.
In 2019, he set up Nostos Ventures in the UAE, a private investment and advisory partnership which pursues investment opportunities in niche parts of Greece’s robust tourism sector, provides advisory services in the UAE and the Gulf Region and, through its Greek subsidiary Beyondful LLC, advisory and hospitality asset management services in Greece. At the same time, Yannis hopes to continue to serve Corporations, SOE’s and Family Offices as a Non-Executive Board Member, in Europe and the Gulf Region.
