When you dive into the backstory of Ideoli Co-Founder and CEO George Stroumboulis, it makes a lot more sense why he started a global company and is able to manage working across multiple markets. Born and raised in Canada to immigrant, business-owner parents from Greece, George has always lived an international, entrepreneurial life.
In addition to Canada, George has lived in Greece, France, Ireland and now resides in Orange County, California. And before he started Ideoli, George created several other businesses in areas including LED lighting, real estate and TV production, and he got his start working in marketing and branding strategy for a wide range of organizations such as a global logistics company, national lighting distributor and the European Union Government.
George has been able to apply this eclectic background in building Ideoli into what it is today, particularly in terms of being able to leverage international relationships and creativity to deliver unparalleled speed to market. George and the Ideoli team are able to quickly work with clients to create a concept, flesh out a completed design, prototype the idea with the right manufacturing partners around the world, and roll into full production within weeks.
When he’s not expanding Ideoli’s global reach, George loves to spend time with his wife and two young daughters. Having a family means that he’s toned down his days of skydiving, bungee jumping, hang gliding and swimming with sharks...for now. Once his girls are old enough to try these adventures with him, he’ll be back at it.
