Since joining IYC Athens in 2015 as General Manager, Ifigeneia Petridou-Chryssicopoulos has brought a wealth of communications experience and organizational skill sets to the company. She graduated from the prestigious Brown University in Rhode Island, USA, in 2006, before moving to New York where she formed part of the Public Relations and Communications Department at Pace Wildenstein Gallery, a leading contemporary art gallery in the heart of the city.
In 2009, Ifigeneia made a step change in industry and country, moving to Athens, Greece, to take up a public relations role at the daily newspaper “Kathimerini”, a partner of The New York Times. Her introduction to the yachting industry came in 2011, when she co-founded ID Real Estate, a company specializing in residential and commercial sales and rentals, alongside select yacht charters.
With her strong attention to detail and excellent interpersonal and communication skills, Ifigeneia brings a professional vibrancy to every department, underpinned by her expertise in client-facing roles. Now spearheading IYC’s HR and marketing departments as the company’s Chief Administration Officer, she forms a hugely valued member of the senior management team.
