companyCompany Profile

Ibis el greco was founded in 1988.

It has since grown in a fully dedicated destination management company and congress organizer, operating all over Greece with its head office in Crete.

All proud members of the team are highly trained, experienced, fully aware of the challenges of modern day organizing and never stop loving and enjoying what they do.

While still having heaps of fun, we take our job very seriously.

Since people are the most important, come and meet us here. 

We will tell you who we are, what we like and why. 

Our team

yves maebeYves Maebe

I am the boss, not always the most enjoyable place to be in. I founded ibis el greco, a mere green 27 years old, learnt all the tricks on the field and remember warmly these first struggling years. 

When relaxing I like sailing, diving… the sea is my great love. 

One of the great prides in my life is the team I have assembled over the years, dedicated to the success of all our events.

maria leventiMaria Leventi

Hi, my name is Maria and I have been working for ibis el greco since 2001. From the beginning I had the feeling that I would become member of a big happy “family”. This impression was correct.
I search for new contacts, organize conferences and I do think I have the necessary skills for this department. I like planning, organizing and working with my colleagues in order to achieve the best result.
I’m satisfied and proud of my work and of our team. I’m lucky to have always the support of my husband and of my two young daughters, when work gets more and more demanding. I suppose they understand that this job makes me happy, and this becomes extremely difficult to find nowadays, correct…?  

Vasso Angelaki

Kalimera, I am Vasso.
I am responsible for the branch office in Corfu, a new wonderfully green destination.
My main job is still to plan and map all the MICE possibilities for the exploding demand for this island. I am happily married with a French man.
He is a real treasure, but guess, who learns faster: me French or he Greek????

kostas Kostas Papadakis

I am Kostas, technical responsible and chief driver for the bus fleet .
To do a job like mine requires a lot of patience which is something I am full of.
Apart from being a driver I am also Cretan which means I like all Cretan hobbies-hunting, raki, good food and “parea”.
Parea, the magical word if you ever want to understand Greece: company, friends, visitors.

anastasiaAnastasia Kotsifaki

Hi, i am Anastasia. I have been the chief Accountant since 1994.
In the accounting department we don’t have the pleasure to organize the happiness of those who choose to come to Greece.
We convert and control numbers, we quarrel with the tax department and with Yves who is never happy with our numbers.
I hope this will last for many more years.
I do my job with a lot of pleasure...

dimitraDimitra Kokkinou

Gia sas: is like kalimera but a bit more informal.
I am Dimitra, ibis el greco assistant accountant since 1991.
Believe me when I say it is still exiting for me. 
You must love numbers of course. I decided to make myself even more useful since i recently gratuated from economics school of Greek Open University.
Not the easiest thing to do, but when you have the support from friends, family, my husband Kostas and the boss everything is possible.  

eleniEleni Andrianaki

And I am Eleni, the newest - so far - member of ibis el Greco, and so definitely proud of it!
My work in ibis, in the conference organization department, has been the most exciting position I have undertaken.
My colleagues are unique people and my tasks are various and the one more interesting than the other.
I love interacting with people from all over the world and I get utterly satisfied to see the excitement of our events' participants, once their expectations have been exceeded.
So, for me, Ibis is the actualisation of the motto "work doesn't necessarily mean no fun".
