Greek America’s Biography of George Stroumboulis / Click Here

George Stroumboulis studied Business Administration at the University of Ulster and at Brock University. He is part of the team that successfully launched LED lighting company, Solais Lighting, which was eventually acquired and is now publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. He also launched, Greece's first and only dedicated real estate portal targeting international markets and attracting tourism and new investment to Greece. Now the leading real estate portal in the Greek property market for international investors, has been featured in dozens of newspapers and magazines around the world.

George also created and produced Hellenic Home Hunting, a television show that featured international buyers searching for property in Greece. The series was pitched to all major television networks in Greece, and was selected by Antenna Satellite, the network with the largest international reach. The 6-episode reality series was created, produced and directed by George and aired during the Monday night prime time slot in February 2013. The show's aim was to promote Greece as a travel destination and educate potential investors about the Greek real estate market, featuring families that have Greek roots of some sort. Following the successful launch of the show, George and his show were featured on the cover of The Wall Street Journal. 

In addition, George launched after meeting with the Ambassador of Canada to Greece and the Head of the International Organization for Migration in Athens, to preserve the more than 200,000 entry documents of Greeks that migrated to other countries. George started this initiative to raise awareness within the Greek diaspora and to help raise funds needed to digitize. 

George participated in the I Am One Greece campaign organized by the Hellenic Initiative, which features a video that included people from the Greek diaspora coming together to share a message of unity and support for the country. He is an advocate for all things Greek, and continues to work with diplomats to promote these initiatives to communities in the United States, Canada and Australia.
