Dimitrios Fountas

Client Director
City, University of London

Dimitrios works in partnership with senior leaders and HR professionals around the world, to develop customised learning solutions that link each organisation’s talent strategy to their business goals, enabling them to better adapt in times of uncertainty.

A qualified accountant, his experience includes financial management and operations roles across Europe in trading and manufacturing, including three years based in Athens as Operations Manager for Hermès. With a background of also working in the Square Mile, he represents the University on financial services client engagement. He has a successful track record of building and growing relationships in Asia at the highest levels, including with several global systemically important banks.

A PRINCE2 Practitioner, he has driven large-scale projects for over a decade, most recently in collaboration with the Payment & Clearing Association of China, to develop a draft blueprint for the country’s evolving payments architecture, with a focus on innovation. Driven by an appetite to go digital in an existential way, as well as the desire to get the process of learning to be something wonderfully exciting and transformative, he is currently developing a digital strategy for the University, tied to City’s Vision & Strategy 2026.
