Born and raised in Greece, George Ertsos studied law and economics at the University of Athens. An avid sailor, Ertsos’ connection to the maritime business started early, regularly working in his family boatyard specialising in the construction of boats up to 28’. As the yachting industry grew in Greece, the young Ertsos saw a golden opportunity and established Alios Company in 1975. At only 20 years old, Ertsos’ entrepreneurial spirit opened the doors to what would eventually become Atalanta Marine in 1985.
As president of Atalanta Marine, Ertsos is involved in day-to-day operations and sales, continually maintaining stellar relationships with clients and industry professionals and attending a variety of international yacht and trade shows.
