With more than 25 years in the industry, Vasiliki champions authentic, innovative and purpose-driven brands that drive social change and offer truly progressive products, and is passionate about supporting female entrepreneurs.

Fluent in four languages, Vasiliki holds an MBA from Columbia Business School in NYC and a Master’s degree in English and Communications from University of Texas.

There's an intro for you!

Vasiliki's role with Unilver's is to help the brands they acquire reach their full potential and is something she is very proud of.  Unilever's aim to is to keep the founders of the businesses they acquire with them, so they can harness their expertise to help shape the future of their business.

With that in mind, I thought she would make a great guest.

I wasn't wrong.
