Konstantinos Pantazis

CFO

Konstantinos, our Outside CFO, also answers to "KP", or "KP Finance", and beyond being an indispensable part of our team at BTSQ, also bolsters our native-New Yorker count. Born in Washington Heights in Upper-Manhattan to Greek parents, Konstantinos was immersed in the city, and the world of its small businesses from a young age. And though he now holds a masters degree in economics from City College, in many ways, not much has changed! He still lives in Washington Heights (right by the George Washington Bridge), and remains passionate about small and local business. When not crunching numbers, chances are you'll find KP reading, working out, learning about the latest in tech, or spending time with his fiancee.

Konstantinos has visited places like Cape Cod, Las Vegas, and Puerto Rico, but remains steadfast in his assertion that New York City is the best place in the world.
