I have been following Anne's career path at Adina from the very beginning and am very proud of how formerly young junior staff successfully develop into real leaders," said Georgios Ganitis, Director of Operations Europe at Adina Hotels.
"This is exactly what we want to achieve with Adina ACADEME, our internal training program: To offer employees the opportunity for personal and professional development, thus qualifying specialists from our own ranks for higher positions. This not only promotes the motivation of our employees, but also creates an important basis for the further growth of Adina Hotels in Europe."
