|Born in a family of an educators,
Kalsahakian traveled with his
parents to cities where his father was
invited to work as a teacher of Armenian
language and history.
This early concept of travel and
cultural interaction with the host
environment (especially in culturally
diverse societies), has created an early
understanding inside Hrach about the
meaning of travel and tourism.
As a graduate of tourism management from
Greece (1994), Hrach started his career
by working in travel agencies in
Patras and Athens.
After being relocated in the United Arab
Emirates, Hrach worked for two years in
Sheraton Abu Dhabi, at a time
when Abu Dhabi was in the beginning of
its economic surge.
In 2005, Hrach was recruited by
Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO)
to work in its newly found
East and Arabian Gulf office as
marketing manager. This position has
helped him achieve his goals and, most
importantly, has reminded him of the
earlier travels he used to do with his
parents, throughout the Middle East
