The award is presented by his daughter Miss Natalia Bolou.

 

Seasoned entrepreneur and C-level executive, George was a Founding (Non Executive) Partner and formerly Chairman of Tickethour which was acquired by the world leader in the sector (Ticketmaster: LiveNation, NYSE, 2016 MK $5.4 billion), which he positioned and sold 57x with fellow Brookstreet partners. Previously, he served as Senior Vice President at the President’s Office of Eurosport and before that as General Director of the Athens Olympic Games 2004 where he was decorated with the Olympic Order Award by the President of the International Olympic Committee, Count Jacques Rogge. Prior, he was the CEO of Continent Hellas of Carrefour Group and before that the CEO of Corina Foods of PepsiCo Group. He started his career with Nestle after studies at Northeastern University. George interests were transferred to his Family Office. George is part of the Brookstreet Equity Partners heritage and an inspiring figure to Greek entrepreneurial wealth creation. George had an astonishing CEO career managing thousands of employees for multinationals and then an incredible “Founders Story” managing start ups and scaling up small-cap firms which he sold to PLCs. Brookstreet is proud to support the first prize of Evolve in the name of GEORGE V. BOLOS to honour his legacy and celebrate his achievements.
