STUDIES

Elias A.Spyrou is a respected Cyprus entrepreneur, who is acknowledged for exercising correct business practices and for contributing to the positive economic development of his country, by further developing strategic alliances with countries of the EU and Middle Eastern region. He is characterised by his integrity of character and for his employee empowering skills. He continually fights for his country, as an advocate for finding a fair and viable solution of the Cyprus problem; a solution which should requisite the withdrawal of the Turkish occupying army, the return of all refugees into their homes, the restoration of human rights and the basic freedoms in Cyprus, but also the establishment of a functional State. On a personal and professional level Elias A.Spyrou promotes social and corporate responsibility and sustainable development. He is a member of several national and international professional organisations and committees, which he has gradually affiliated with, through his multi-cultural and communication networking skills.

“When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen”

Elias A.Spyrou was born in Limassol, Cyprus. His leadership traits are evident from a young age, since he always led his peers by gaining the consecutive presidency title of his classes at school. As a scholar he is inspired by Ancient Greeks and mythology and enjoyed reading the works of philosophers.

Later at university, he becomes actively involved in Student Youth Group Associations and Committees. Upon graduating from high school, he enrols into the Cyprus army, wherein he holds the position of Sergeant of the mechanical unit and the position of a Trainer for new recruits. He served within his nation’s army for a period of 26 months and remains a firm believer in participation of all Cypriots in the army service. He advocates that abstaining from military service in the National Guard contributes towards lowering the empowerment of the national defence of his country, the only European country that is illegally divided to “north” and “south”, as the northern part remains under Turkish occupation since the summer of 1974.

His quest for justice to prevail, within an island deeply wounded by the 1974 Turkish invasion, leads him into pursuing his studies in law, even though he knows that eventually he will exploit his strong entrepreneurial skills in lieu of practising law. His deeply in-grained sense of social and political justice and dignity, coupled with a calling to his Hellenic roots and heritage, lead him to Athens, the European capital of culture and wisdom, wherein he obtains his degree in Law from the National Kapodistrian University of Athens. In 2008, he returns to his homeland Cyprus, driven passionately by his vision to contribute to the positive growth and development of his country on an economic, political and social level.
