John Kittmer is the new British Ambassador in Athens. Mr Kittmer presented his credentials to His Excellency, Karolos Papoulias, President of the Hellenic Republic, on February 5,  2013.
Mr Kittmer is a career diplomat having spent time in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Cabinet Office and other UK government departments. He specializes in international and EU policies having also spent time in the UK's office in the EU headquarters in Brussels. He has also worked at DEFRA on UK Animal Rights legislation.

On the occasion of his presentation of credentials, the Ambassador said:

“It was a great honour and pleasure to present my credentials today to the President of the Republic. The British and the Greek people are partners and friends. Through the challenges we both face, I look forward to strengthening our relations, promoting economic, education and cultural links, and to supporting British people who visit or live in Greece.”

Mr Kittmer studied Classics at Cambridge and Oxford universities and Modern Greek Studies at King College. He is accompanied by his civil partner, David Bates, who works for the OECD in Greece.

Brits in Crete congratulates Mr Kittmer on his posting, and look forward to his supporting the British community not only in Crete but across Greece especially on animal welfare issues. This is a topic that many British ex-pat residents feel strongly about. Crete has its fair share of registered charities in the field of rescuing dogs, cats, donkeys and even wild birds.
