Prime Minister Mitsotakis to Visits TeamViewer in Ioannina

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis visited the research and development centre of the international information technology company TeamViewer.

Government sources noted that the area around Ioannina hosts a large number of technology companies and university graduates working in computer science and software development.

“Who could have imagined that Ioannina would have the necessary conditions to become a technology hub,” said the prime minister, expressing his joy at the fact that technology companies decided to operate in Ioannina and take advantage of the “exceptional talent of students graduating from our universities.”

The TeamViewer Center, which has been operating since early 2020, currently employs 50 software engineers, a number that is projected to increase to 150 to 200 in the coming years.

The prime minister was welcomed, among others, by the CEO of TeamViewer, Oliver Steil, the General Manager and Head of the Greek team, Philipp Deutscher, and the Managing Director of DACH Permira, Jorg Rockenhauser.

“What impresses me the most – every time I talk to technology companies that have decided to explore the landscape in Greece – is the enthusiasm with which they talk about young Greeks and their talent,” Mitsotakis said.

The CEO of TeamViewer, Oliver Steil, noted that the centre of Ioannina “is one of the largest research and development centres of TeamViewer in the world as in the past we recruited in Stuttgart, in southwestern Germany.”
