Chrysoudakis - Personal Assistant - Athens, Attiki, Greece

Maria Chrysoudakis

Athens, Attiki, Greece


I am an ambitious and independent Greek/Canadian, born from Greek parents who immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1968.

With more than 18 years of experience in Administrative posts within Canada and Greece and a proven record of accomplishments.

Working with higher level management of top international companies has helped me learn how to establish excellent rapport with my co-workers as well as associates of my previous employers. The effect of working with this level of authorities has allowed me to learn many things that I hope to have the opportunity to discuss with you.
