Cr Athanasopoulos was born of two migrant parents from Greece and Italy. They both worked hard to give their three boys the life they envied, and always taught the importance of service.
Cr Athanasopoulos resides and runs a family business in Carnegie with the drive instilled by his parents. The family business is operated together with his wife Katherine and they both share a position on the Chrisalis Foundation board, a not-for-profit foundation supporting young people with disabilities.
Cr Athanasopoulos imagines a world where people inspire and nurture one another to achieve excellence. He wishes to use his vision of the world to further enhance our amazing municipality and ensure Glen Eira continues to provide the best facilities and services for our residents.
Cr Athanasopoulos has attended Head Masters Academy (Certificate III in Hairdressing) and TMG College (The Malka Group) (Certificate IV Hairdressing and Training and Assessment).
