Mr. Kostas Zannis
BSc, MSc, CEO
Mr. Kostas Zannis, founder and President/CEO of Microshop Computers and it's corresponding communication department VoIP.gr, graduated in 1989 in Manchester UMIST with a BSc degree of Electronics. In 1992, after working for two years in AB Electronic systems in Cardiff Wales as a senior electronic designer, he acquired an MSc degree in Integrated Circuit (IC) design. In 1993, during his national army service, he was chosen to be an assistant lecturer in electronics in the army school of aircrafts. Parallel with that he was a part time teacher in software in one of the most well-known private schools in Athens, Ellinogermaniki Agogi.
Based on the opportunities he saw and the contacts he had made, both with some of the computer manufacturers and with major Greek corporations, Kostas decided to start his own computer business.
