  2. 2. The beginning  Born in a family where art and craftsmanship lies in its roots, I was raised molded by art to the extent that art and I have become one;  With the aim of perfecting my innate talent and to further develop my skills and expertise, I have decided to pursue my education in related fields; graduating from high school Samuel Murad, Paris in 1980, I have also attended ENSBA Paris;  I began my early career as an assistant in the design department of NIHAKO – our family business gaining experience under the Master Joseph Chamichian. As a matter of fact, the business was established with my grand-father Ohannes Nigoghossian, in 1922 as a small wood-carving crafts business. The second generation took over the business and modernized it as of 1964;  My range and skills and noticeable talent helped me become the production manager of the company in 1987.

  4. 4. My Beliefs  Believing that the learning process never ends and that Art without the endorsement of leadership and managerial skills to build and sustain effective businesses is a necessity, I enrolled in specialized certificates in various topics among which the Certificate in Leadership with GW University, USA;  To me art and management are complementary; acquiring the art of leadership and combining it with talent is what constitutes the required success recipe to run and manage businesses in related industries.
