Marios Alexandrou is a Director for First Names Group in Cyprus.
Since joining the business back in 2008, Marios has moved rapidly through the ranks. His feet were barely under the desk when he was given responsibility for an extensive portfolio of clients. Not only was he up for the challenge, he went above and beyond expectations to deliver a top-quality service.
Don't agonise, organise.
Detail-orientated by nature, Marios knows that each of his clients is much more than a number. He makes it his business to understand their needs inside out, and he gets huge satisfaction from his work. A firm believer that a tidy desk means a tidy mind, Marios never leaves anything to chance.
Like many of his countrymen, Marios left Cyprus to study in England. He graduated with a degree in Economics and Accounting from the University of Hull. On returning home in 2001, he successfully trained as a Chartered Accountant.
IN THREE WORDS:
Newly-qualified Marios realised there was more to life than auditing, and he hankered after the variety and challenges he now enjoys on a daily basis. He adopts a very democratic approach to teamwork and likes a flat structure, insisting that everyone is given the opportunity to contribute equally. Marios champions the inclusive approach that First Names Group is bringing to client services - and looks forward to sustained growth.
Marios enjoys his holidays in the sun, surrounded by friends and family. A big fan of Mediterranean food and Greek music, he also loves to spend his weekends eating and drinking outdoors: in the summer, at Protaras; during the winter, in the Troodos mountains. Top of Marios' wish list is to roar around Monaco in a Formula 1 car (although avoiding the barriers would test even his reputation for precision).
