According to Greek Mythology Kekrops was the first king of Athens, half man and half snake, known for his wisdom.
KEKROPS S.A. was founded in 1923 with over 25 hectares of property in the area that is today called Palaio Psychiko. Just in 1924 KEKROPS S.A. initiated the first private urban plan and development in Greece, that was completed a few years later and resulted perhaps one of the most prominent and expensive suburbs of Athens.
Since then KEKROPS S.A. has concentrated in the development of housing projects on its own land in Palaio Psychiko, gathering an extensive and indeed unique experience and know-how in the high quality residential housing market.
Listed in the Athens Stock Exchange in 1967, the Company is today trading in the Main Market (Real Estate – Real Estate Holding & Development).
In November 1999 the majority of shares was acquired by INTRAPAR S.A. and General Construction Company (GEK SA).
In February 2002 Intrapar SA transferred half of its shares to Enfield Properties Limited.
In December 2008 Enfield Properties Limited transferred its shares to Mr Psicharis Panagiotis.
Finally, In June 2013 Mr Psicharis Panagiotis transferred his shares to Mr Psicharis Stayros.
This fundamental change in the shareholders provided the company with new opportunities to broaden its activities and make use of the extensive knowledge and expertise of its main shareholders.
