ATHENS — Steve Vranakis has completed his one-year term as special advisor to Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and is returning to the private sector as of Tuesday, December 1, the government announced. Vranakis successfully concluded one year as Chief Creative Officer (CCO) of the Greek government, the announcement said, providing services to Greece as a special advisor to the prime minister.

Vranakis and his team at Enterprise Greece, "a successful mix of young professionals and seasoned experts, successfully delivered the strategy, communication narrative, branding and a complete implementation guide, along with the basic tools for repositioning the image of the country (Repositioning Greece) that will be presented later in 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic," the announcement said.

The government added that Vranakis will return to the private sector but continue to hold the title of CCO for Greece and advise the prime minister on issues related to creativity, design, branding, innovation, technology and sustainability on a voluntary basis, without a salary.
