CIBA Appoints Doxia Nikia as New President

The Cyprus International Business Association (CIBA) announces that Doxia Nikia, Director of D.D. Fidelity Associates Ltd, has been appointed as their new President.

Nikia, who has been a member of the Executive Committee since 2007, is the first woman at the helm of the only association representing the international business community in Cyprus.

She has many years of experience in the international business sector of Cyprus and an excellent understanding of the island’s current economic, fiscal and financial situation.  She pledges to bring forth new ideas and a new strategy for the Limassol-based Association, so as to enhance not only the profile of CIBA, but that of its members as a whole, driving the non-profit entity to the next level. 

Doxia Nikia replaces Frixos Savvides who has given accomplishments and recognition to the Association over his nine years in office. To thank him, CIBA has created an honorary position of Ex-Officio President on the Board for Mr. Savvides.

At the same time, the Association is restructuring in order to meet the current demands and expectations of the members, as well as to enhance its role as the leading Association of International Businesses with real substance in Cyprus.

To help towards that goal, two new Vice-Presidents have been appointed - namely Andreas Andreou of Columbia Shipmanagement Ltd and Liudmila Bozhedomova of ARETI International Energy LLC.

In addition, Chris Koufaris, a member of the CIBA Executive Committee from 1999, CIBA President between 2002 – 2007 and General Secretary of the Association, since 2012, has announced his retirement.

With the support of the member companies, a closer continued co-operation with other organisations and Government departments, CIBA’s role is expected to be even more instrumental in being the voice of the whole International Business Community in Cyprus.
