George Stroumboulis is an entrepreneur to the core, having launched several ventures across multiple industries and international markets. He has held senior-level positions at progressive companies and government institutions, both domestically and internationally, building an extensive portfolio of business know-how over the years and driving profit-generating results.
Notable experiences include the creation of a reality television program featuring Europe’s real estate to a global audience, being part of the founding team of a high-tech LED lighting startup that went public on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and launching the first ever real estate website focusing on the Greek market targeting foreign investors.
This all led to his current professional passion, Ideoli Group, that he co-founded with his business partner. A multi-national manufacturing company that helps international clients outfit their new spaces with custom lighting and interior products - with some notable clients including Tesla, Microsoft, WeWork, Abercrombie, Hilton, Harvard University and Aston Martin. George’s ability to drive real change has landed him in several media outlets, including the front page of the Wall Street Journal, Fox Business News, El Mundo Spain, India Today, G1 Brasil, Barron’s Germany, Kathimerini Greece and several others across Europe and North America.
Having a family of all girls means he has toned down his days of skydiving, bungee jumping, hang gliding and swimming with sharks... for now. Once his 3 daughters are old enough to experience these adventures with him, he promises to be back at it.
