About – Meet the Team


Leading is the trade name of the sole proprietorship, established in 2003 by Yiannis Kotzianoglou and Brigitte Wauters.

Yannis and Brigitte gained their initial experience in the field in 1982 with the travel agency Talos tours based in Rethymnon, Crete. For the next twelve years they successfully represented and provided services for many European travel and tourism companies.

Relocating to Brussels, they subsequently diversified into tour operating which, from 1992 to 2000 enabled them to accrue extensive knowledge and
experience along with numerous personal/business contacts within the field of European and world travel and tourism.

On their return to Crete in 2003 they decided to utilize their combined accumulated experience within the Greek market as Leisure Industry consultants; further diversifying their activities into the fields of digital publishing and Event Management.

Now based in Rethymno, they head a dynamic, highly qualified experienced multinational team.
