Message from our Managing Partner
Evgenios C Evgeniou
||Over our firm’s history we have achieved a lot, we have plenty to be proud of and we have an obligation to take our firm forward. We have a clear goal to strengthen our position as the leading professional services firm in Cyprus that is doing the right thing for our clients, for our people, for the capital markets and for our country.
Market conditions remain difficult, economic uncertainty prevails and we recognise that this is not business as usual. In the current difficult conditions we have set ambitious goals. We have developed a strategy that aims to help us achieve our objectives of growth, improved competitiveness and investment in the future. To achieve them we need to collaborate effectively in executing on our strategic priorities of maximising market opportunities, building strategic capabilities, transforming our business model, building quality business and delivering on our brand promise.
Our continuing success and our ability to meet the demands of our clients in an increasingly complex business environment, depends critically on the quality and commitment of our people. We will continue to invest in the professional development of our people and to offer excellent opportunities for career advancement. Whilst we adjust to the current market realities, we continue to improve our capability to attract, retain and engage quality people to service our clients.
Quality is the foundation of what we do and beyond that we aim to add value that is relevant to our clients and to give them an experience that is distinctive. This requires continuous evolvement of our culture. We are committed to intensify our effort to deliver on our brand promise of building relationships that help our clients and people create the value they want.
To maximise market opportunities we have reorganised by pulling together relevant competencies so as to facilitate the provision of consistent go to market client centric services. We bring more focus on the market by strengthening our industry capabilities, intensifying our efforts to develop the international business, empowering our client relationship partners and focusing more on the middle market and family businesses. We are transforming our business model to improve our competitiveness through the introduction of new technologies and streamlining of our operations. We are investing in the future by building strategic capabilities in areas where we see growth potential and we strengthen our connectivity with our network through strategic secondments.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Territory Senior Partner Phidias Pilides for his contribution in leading our firm to many achievements. I would also like to thank for their contribution all the partners who are outgoing members of the Executive Board and Service Line Leaders who move on to new responsibilities.
I assume my new role with a great sense of responsibility towards my fellow partners, who entrusted me, and towards our clients and our people. I also recognise our responsibility to continue supporting the economic development of our country, especially in today’s challenging times.
The current market and economic difficulties is a call to do more. To work effectively, as a team, with collaborative spirit so as to realise our aspirations. We have a great client base, the best people, a great brand, tremendous global expertise, rich local experience and a long successful history. Above all we have the determination to succeed.
