Hello, My name is Chris and in the next lines I will describe for you, in a few worlds, my working past experience. I started work in the restaurant business when i was very young (1988) and i realized that that kind of job was for me, i really enjoyed being around people who wants to have a great time even during a simple meal. I joined Crown Odyssey of Royal Cruise Line in 1989, as an assistant waiter. Royal Cruise Line was one of the leading cruise lines of the world and also a great school for me .School? Better say University... Soon i become an ass. Bartender .It was very helpful for me that i had a very good command of English language. In 1991 i had to complete my military obligations .I returned in Royal Cruise Line's Royal Odyssey in 1993 as a dining room waiter. Happened again and i transferred to the main lounge as a bar waiter .The same year i became the youngest barman of the cruise line, with four ships at the time! I worked in many bars, starting from the Outdoor Pool Bar, the dining room bar and finally at the main lounge of the ship. I disembarked in 1995 to create a restaurant of my own. 1998 was the year that i decided to change profession and create a family. I decided to be around people again, so I become a sales man. That profession helped me to understand people and to be more patient and at the same time to improve myself by helping my colleagues getting better. At 2006 I had a very attempting offer to return to my old profession as a chief steward in a private 60 m yacht of a very well-known family of Greece. I stayed there until the family sold the yacht in order to take a bigger one. After that I joined a passenger ship of Hellenic Sea Ways as a bartender. My work on the Pegasus Express wasn’t exactly what I like, so I returned to the sales business. Ten years ago ,I joined Imperial Tobacco Hellas. The last six years I am working as a national account representative at Imperial Tobacco Hellas, a very well-known multinational FMCG company. I am responsible for the sales strategy and all activity plans in the market, development of sales force coverage and activity plan for each respective area and wholesaler on a cycle basis according to the Imperial Strategy for Rizla products. Development of a sales force coverage and activity plan for each respective area and wholesaler on a cycle basis according to the Imperial Strategy for Rizla Continuous monitoring and follow up of the advised sales strategy within the focus regions, implementation of adjustments and corrective actions Presentation of Rizla strategy for the total of wholesalers and on field coaching Training of telephone sales reps of respective wholesalers based on defined criteria and follow up calls in real time Monitor and manage relevant budgets. All these years I also gained knowledge of managing people and of course doing almost everything through a computer. All these past ten years during weekends or at special occasions, I’m working as Maître d'hôtel In Embassies or private events. Now I am ready again to return to the profession I started. I have the background and the knowledge you need in order to give to your customers an unforgettable time on board one of your yachts or cruise ships. I hope to have news from you soon .
