Konstantinos Pantazis

CFO

Konstantinos’ finance abilities and management style make him a fine addition at Beyond Times Square. Born of Greek parents and raised in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan, Konstantinos always had an interest in business and numbers. Even before college he was inspired by his brother, who is a successful entrepreneur, and owns three businesses in northern Manhattan, Konstantinos knew the entrepreneurial life was the life he wanted. In 2010, he graduated from City College of New York with a Masters in Economics of Finance. While in school he worked for a fashion accessories company, handling their finances and office management. Although new to the tourism industry, Konstantinos is excited for new challenges and looks forward to being able to make the most of his business skills at Beyond Times Square. When he is not crunching numbers, he is working out, watching football, or spending time with friends.
