Nikos Tsafos Appointed Chief Energy Adviser to Greek PM Mitsotakis

WASHINGTON – Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has appointed Nikos Tsafos (BA IR ’03) to be his special adviser for energy security.

In his new role, Tsafos will be responsible for liaising with the United States as Greece seeks to reduce its dependence on Russian natural gas and elevate its role as a regional energy hub.

Tsafos is a leading authority on energy who has worked with companies, financial institutions, and governments in over 30 countries on some of the world’s most complex energy projects. Most recently, he held the James R. Schlesinger Chair for Energy and Geopolitics at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and served on the Climate Advisory Committee of the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM). From 2016 to 2019, he was an adjunct lecturer at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).

Tsafos is an engaged and distinguished alumnus of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University supporting student career aspirations through event participation and direct contributions to the Michael T. Corgan Internship Fund.
