Programmer, Analyst, Software Engineer, Web Designer, Team Leader, Project Manager, ISO Management Systems Manager, and recently Director of IT & ISO Services
All the above have been the professional roles I have had since 1996, when I began my career. I have been employed by companies big and small and I have worked for and / or managed projects for their clients, that include the European Space Agency, the Greek Parliament, the Greek Ministry of Agriculture, the Municipality of Thessaloniki, most of the Greek Banks (Alpha Bank, Eurobank, Piraeus Bank) and groups of companies in the food sector such as Nestle and Vivartia. In October 2019, I co-founded EHSQ Development with my wife, Ilia Bardani, where I hold the position of Director – IT & ISO Services.
My professional experience provided me with a valuable understanding of many areas and types of business and the similarities and differences in the data they used and the ways they did / could benefit from their data. I have become quite capable in designing business processes and data structures and IT applications to assist and improve them. Furthermore, I have led and managed the teams that implemented them, put them in production and supported them.
|Another very important part of my professional experience regards the design, implementation, support and audit of ISO Management Systems as a certified Lead Auditor for ISO 22301 (Business Continuity) and ISO 27001 (Information Security), and also with experience in ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment), ISO 39001 (Road Safety), ISO 45001 (Occupational Health & Safety), and ISO 50001 (Road Safety).|
My love for computers and programming began at the age of 12, with home computers and the Basic programming language. After taking GCE A-Levels in Greece (Moraitis School), I earned a BSc in Computer Science degree from the University of Bradford and an MSc in Machine Perception and Neurocomputing degree from Keele University, with my MSc thesis’ subject being the “Classification of multi-spectral remote sensing data with neural networks” having contributed to my first publication.
