His sensitivity and love for the company is evident in his last speech to the company staff:
"Looking back at Space Hellas's course of 32 years, I feel content. I do not think anyone would ask for anything more in his professional career. Ours was not an easy beginning, with endless hours of hard work and effort, but we had so much faith in what we did that it was impossible not to succeed.
The tremendous work, the love for what we did and the passion to accomplish our dreams is what I remember very vividly and which determined the success for the continuation. A success that we couldn't realize at first but we nourished with more hard work, perseverance and daring.
I would like to express my gratitude to the people who believed in us, the collaborators, but also our clients who supported us all these years with their trust. Thanks to them we reached this point and we keep going.
In 2013 Dimitris Manolopoulos handed over the leadership of the company to the younger Executives, whom wholeheartedly supported never missing a day.
