A hotel’s operation is much more than what guests see. Its operation actually happens behind the scenes. Ioulia Gouverou is one of those people who work behind the scenes and guarantee that everything works flawlessly. Ioulia is Head of the Technical Department in Olympia and she works for 17 years in the Construction and Maintenance department. Her favorite moment is when she offers a tour at the engine room of Aldemar Olympian Village and she speaks with pride about her work!
How does it feel to be part of the Aldemar Resorts’ team?
As a professional, I am grateful to be part of such a dynamic company; a company that never stops to develop and always finds new opportunities to make the difference. I have been working in Aldemar Olympian Village for 17 years and I still enjoy every day the moment I arrive at work and I see the wonderful natural environment that surrounds the resort. I am also grateful for meeting the Angelopoulos family, working closely with them and with many other valuable colleagues who I feel as friends!
Which part of your work do you enjoy the most?
I love the fact that Aldemar’s culture promotes innovation and constant education. When I first started working in the technical department of Aldemar, I only had theoretical background and no previous working experience. 17 years later career I have gained vast experience, I’ve mastered processes, I’ve learnt state-of-art technologies and I am still learning every day. Having said that, every day at work is a new day; different, educational and full of surprises!
What’s a work related story which is engraved in your memory and you will always remember?
It’s not a specific story that I want to share, it’s something that happens every year. Every time, every year that the hotel opens its doors to welcome the first guest of the season I feel proud and emotional.
