Biography

Andrea Vgenopoulos was a Greek fencer but better known as a prominent Greek businessman. He graduated from Athina University Law School and founded his own law firm. He also earned an MBA degree from Long Island University in the United States. Vgenopoulos later became executive chairman of the Marfin Investment Group and was vice-president of the Marfin Popular Bank and the Diagnostic and Therapuetic Center of Athens Hygeia. Vgenopoulos was involved in several controversies because of his business dealings and his political leanings, especially when he was a major sharefolder of Panathinaikos FC, which ended in 2010. As a fencer he was Greek champion with the sabre in 1972-73, and the épée in 1972-75, 1977, and 1980-81. He won over 45 medals at the European and Balkan Games in the 1970s and early 1980s.
