Katerina focuses on executive search at senior levels especially in FMCG, pharma and retail industries. Before establishing her own company, she was a Partner of Cornerstone International Group. She brings corporate experience in HR management from multinational organisations such as The Coca-Cola Company, where she worked for almost six years in HR Regional and Marketing Manager roles across Greece, Cyprus and Malta. Prior to that, she worked for British Petroleum as HR Advisor. She holds an MBA from the Cardiff University of Wales, UK and a BSc in Statistics from Piraeus University of Economics and Business.
“I am very happy that we’ve managed to remain at the top of the IRC ladder again this year, especially because these were two very challenging years in a row for the world due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the limitations in our daily business activities. However, we have successfully crossed our borders this year and worked with our partners worldwide on critical projects for international clients. If I had to mention a few key success factors that led to this award, I would say adaptability, agility, speed and high quality work.
As an elected Executive Board Member, I am very proud to represent the No 1 Alliance in the world and I trust that there will be two challenging years ahead with not only hard work but also inspiration. I always believe that it is very difficult to reach the top, but more difficult to remain there,” says Katerina Meimaroglou, Founder and Managing Partner IRC Greece (MEIHUNT).
