LUBS finalist in British Council Study UK Alumni Awards, Greece

Business School alumnus, Tilemachos Mavrakis, has been recognised for his achievements since leaving Leeds, as he was named a finalist in the latest British Council Study UK Alumni Awards 2017–18.

Held in Athens on Wednesday 7 March 2018, Tilemachos was shortlisted in the Entrepreneurial Award category, which highlights alumni who have played a leading role in business innovation. The awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of alumni and showcase the impact and value of a UK higher education.

Tilemachos Mavrakis (MA Human Resource Management, 2003) is founder and CEO of ADMINE, one of South East Europe’s largest independent digital agencies, with offices in Greece, Cyprus and Portugal. Under his leadership, ADMINE is today a benchmark for digital marketing excellence and is advancing rapidly across borders. It has won numerous national and international awards and has shown substantial growth in people, profit and return to society with pro bono activities over the last decade. As Europe enters its most critical digitisation phase, Tilemachos aspires to be at the forefront as a leader in the regional digital industry and pave the way for its digital transformation. He believes that studying in the UK was an obvious choice for him: the high global ranking of UK institutions, the vast selection of modern programmes and the close connection between universities and the industry have been key criteria in his selection.

Tony Buckby, Director of British Council Greece, said: ‘The remarkable individuals we celebrated today at the Study UK Alumni Awards in Greece have all taken their UK education as a starting point to excel in their chosen careers and shape the world around them. This year’s awards ceremony is testimony not only to the diversity of UK alumni and their endeavours, but also to the transformative impact of a UK education. With more than 300,000 alumni of a UK education in Greece, there is much to celebrate.’
