Mr. George Eliades is an equities trader and entrepreneur who was appointed managing partner of Algean Group in late 2013. 

He is a dual national, Greek American, who has lived and worked in the US, the UK and in Greece. 

Inspired by his family's background in shipping and manufacturing, George started setting up small businesses when he was still in high school.

Straight after university he joined Merrill Lynch in the US. After a few years as a trader he joined one of his family's businesses, Myloi Soyas. He was keen to draw his own path and eventually he started his first proper venture in hospitality that he successfully sold after four years. 

For the next ten years he worked in financial services, in trading, M&A and advisory, where he led one of the largest M&A deals in the South Eastern Europe, while participating in several others. During this time, he also invested in a series of start ups. He eventually left the financial services sector to focus on the ventures he founded.

His grandfather's successful steps in real estate always inspired him and in late 2013 he founded his latest venture, Algean Property.

George holds a BA from AIU in California.
