President, Democracy & Culture Foundation
With an impressive background in publishing and circulation spanning over 30 years, Achilles Tsaltas has worked in pivotal roles for companies such as News Corporation, The International Herald Tribune and, since 2014, as vice president of international conferences at The New York Times. It is here that he launched the Athens Democracy Forum and Art for Tomorrow and developed a passion for democracy and culture.
In 2019, Achilles founded the Democracy & Culture Foundation to organize and host the two conferences he launched during his tenure with The Times, while continuing to maintain close links with the paper in terms of curating and moderating the events.
With the future growth and development of the two conferences secured under the nonprofit structure of the Foundation, Achilles and his team have a mission to make the events more consequential, driving impact by partnering with organizations to turn solutions into action.
