Elizabeth Christacopoulos Elizabeth Christacopoulos

Engagement manager

I am responsible for engaging with the small and medium business community to increase awareness of GS1 standards being key to drive business growth, provide pathways to open connections to potential trading opportunities and access to community support partnerships.

Previously, I worked for a non-profit government employment and education organisation developing start-ups and creating opportunities within small businesses. With a commercial sales background, I recently worked as a management consultant engaged with several cross-sector small businesses, following a retail commercial career at Mondelez UK and Lindt and Sprüngli UK.

My interests include cars, scrabble and gymnastics.
