Christo Demetriades

Managing Partner

Demetriades is a proven entrepreneur, visionary and leader. He has successfully created, owned and sold businesses both in the U.S. and internationally. His understanding of international finance, law and business operations, underscored by his strong accounting background, make Demetriades the perfect resource when acquiring and analyzing high-growth/high-potential brands. He has taken public a dozen food, health and education brands leading to over a billion dollars in market cap, internationally on five continents. Among his many lucrative transactions are Health and Racquet Club (which he sold to Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Active) and Lunchbox Wax (the latest success story in Christo's transaction portfolio, selling to WellBiz Brands). His three-decade tenure as a CEO, CFO and COO for franchising, restaurant, entertainment and self-care brands means Demetriades knows how to build and nurture strong, loyal management teams that drive both culture and goal achievement. And by working with executive teams to solidify the financial and operational structure of companies, he sets them up to reach their full potential, providing public and private investors viable opportunities, and business owners the chance to achieve their dreams.
