It’s not all bad for the Greeks, if your rich and powerful, you get a cushy job.
From the Real.gr online news service.
The highest office, that of President, World Council of Airports, was the CEO of Athens International Airport, John Parashis, confirming in practice that the “Eleftherios Venizelos”, except the services offered and have made it one of the best airport in the world, has great skills and living material.
G. Parashis was elected unanimously by the heads of airports around the world, President of the World Council of Airports, which numbers 580 members, representing 1,650 airports in 179 countries. His election was announced during the General Assembly of the World Council of Airports (Airports Council International ACI-World), in Marrakech.
It should be noted that Mr. Paraschis steadily climbed the rungs of the hierarchy to become president, and, by November 2009, he was Vice President of World Council of Airports (ACI World), and served for 2 consecutive terms (2007 – 2009) President of Airports Council Europe (ACI Europe).
The election of Mr. Paraschi as President of the World Council of Airports in such a difficult period for Greece, is an important recognition for the airport operator and for the country and is the result of the continued and systematic work of the administration of the International AIA in international fora, for many years.
Speaking of Mr. Paraschis stressed that he takes up his new duties at a critical time for the industry but also in a particularly difficult juncture for the country, adding that the instability that characterizes the period of times, it requires the “voice” of airports are single and most vociferous worldwide.
