Nikos Kouremenos

I studied completely different things (Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences in Sweden) ,but eventually, I followed my passion which was sports/fitness /wellness and went through different stages in my career from managing various big health clubs, establishing my own consulting company Fitness Academy, being a franchisor for a US ladies gym chain, working in the executive Athens 2004 Organizing Committee and the 2011 World Summer Games Special Olympics, representing international organizations (American College of Sports Medicine, IDEA, IHRSA) and finally coming full circle to work for a Swedish company Raison d ‘Etre for the past 7,5 years as the Education & Project Manager, thus combining both sides that I love, education and project design. I am Greek, I have traveled all around the world’s 5 continents (with sports and business) and I am now based again in my home town Athens, Greece, working from here.

My passion for work:

My initial desire was to study architecture, so being involved now with spa design, concept creation and space planning is great for me! Educating, mentoring and developing people was the other thing that I grew to like and develop myself into through my years in managing teams of people and I really enjoy doing that as well. I love working for a company like RDE since we share the same core values and that makes me feel very comfortable. 
I never cease to look for ways to improve myself, my work and at the same time challenge myself.

My Raison d’Etre:

I love sports and of course fitness & wellness. I love watching sports, being involved in organizing events/facilities, anything sports/wellness-related. My top 3 favorite sports are basketball, tennis and squash, having played all 3 in national teams and on an international level.
