Filippos Lekkas (2018)
Fil Lekkas studied politics and economics at Yale University, where he competed with the Debate Association and led the Yale European Undergraduates. After working across Europe for BCG and the European Commission, he founded Synpraxis, a think tank that activates the latent intellectual capital of the globally-dispersed community of young Greek academics and professionals to produce actionable and accessible public policy research. Through Schwarzman Scholars he hopes to help European public and private organizations learn from and compete with China. Fil is 25 years old and from Germany and Greece.
