Dimitris Koiliaris, Deputy Chairman and CEO of SABO S.A
Entrepreneur of the Year 2011 in Innovation Sector
At an event organized by Ernst & Young on the evening of 7 December at the Athens Concert Hall, Dimitris Koiliaris, Deputy Chairman and CEO of SABO S.A was named “Innovative Entrepreneur of the Year” for 2011.
In his acceptance speech, Mr. D. Koiliaris emphasized that ‘Life’s values and real satisfactions are not to be found in simply making do, but in setting oneself ambitious targets and striving to attain them’.
The Entrepreneur of the Year awards are an incentive for companies to try even harder, to set themselves even higher standards, to be unafraid to break new ground and search for innovative solutions.
SABO S.A is a member of the SABO GROUP of companies, whose activities consist of a wide range of electrical and mechanical engineering projects, construction, road-building, technical research and development, photovoltaic systems and general industrial automation projects.
Mr. Koiliaris concluded his address as follows: ‘There is a tendency to single out individuals for distinctions and rewards – but in the case of our company this would be most unfair. It is true that I have made a decisive contribution to the company, but without the whole team, with their talents and enthusiasm, the company would have achieved nothing’.
