The speaker

George Filios

Strong Connection with water

He always had a strong connection with water. For him, it was everything…life, safety, my home environment…a call. It led him to become a swimmer, water polo player, a lifeguard, and finally, a scuba diver. He was a trainer at the only commercial diving school in Greece at that time. Plus, he was working as a commercial diver in Rotterdam. Then, he worked in South Africa, Corfu, and Kefalonia as a scuba diving instructor, and also in Athens in the Ministry of Underwater Archaeology, where he led a team of divers for underwater exploration in the Aegean Sea. Concerning equipment, he is a certified ScubaPro equipment technician and captain for small motorboats.

History

But then, he felt it was time for him to open his own scuba diving center. It was back in 2002, and with a limited investment, he registered a scuba diving center on Lesvos island. He had a van and three sets of equipment, and he provided scuba services to hotels all around the island. Finally, he invested in two bases on the North and South of the island. He also opened his shop in the main city, where he was selling scuba diving and snorkeling equipment. It was the “golden time of Greece”. And then, the economic crisis hit in 2008, and he had to shut down his shop and one of the bases, so he stayed with one centre in the North of the island. Another crisis hit the island 2015 and it was when unfortunate people from Middle East fleeted the island because of the war in Syria. That situation effect the tourism industry of the island, so the diving center as well. Tanja, his wife, entered his life in 2015 bringing her sales and marketing skills. This led to business recovery, but it was also the moment when the concept of opening another diving center was born because they felt confident that they could manage it. So, he went to Vietnam, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and the Canary Islands to analyze a market and look for good business opportunities. Finally, they were offered the hard-to-reject opportunity to join a family of scuba diving centers in Greece, in partnership with 5-star resorts. Therefore, in 2019, they opened our second diving center on Kos Island, Greece.
