Globe Williams CEO CEO Asia/Pacific Managing Director

Peter Souvatzis

Peter graduated from the Athens University of Law in 1989. Soon after he completed his Masters in International Law at the Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and also earned a degree in Media Communications in Greece. A lawyer by trade, Peter found himself working with a real estate company in Australia. Every time he went onsite for a job, he noticed a lack in maintenance companies needed to do all of the tasks required. Peter found it frustrating to contact each individual facility tradesman. Filling this need, Peter founded Globe Williams International in Melbourne, Australia in 1999 and has since built the company into a multinational and multimillion dollar business. Globe Williams has operational offices in Australia, New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, Greece, Jordan, Cyprus, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Albania, Moldova, Nigeria, with representative offices in Italy, South Africa, Canada, Brazil, UAE / Dubai. The Globe Williams International model based on a strategy of local acquisitions and embossing local partners has been proven to be extremely successful. Globe Williams plans to expand into Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Russia, Venezuela and Qatar. Peter is also involved in a number of global organizations serving either as a board member or as an advisor, in addition to overseeing all of Globe Williams International operations. Peter is still an active international law advisor for major legal firms globally. 
Peter speaks fluent Greek and English and resides in Athens, Greece. Peter is married to Adel and has a two and a half year old daughter Felicity – Mari.
