After ten years at the reins, PwC Cyprus chief executive officer Evgenios Evgeniou has announced he is passing the baton to Philippos Soseilos. 

Evgenios Evgeniou is a lifelong PwC’er, having joined the accounting and advisory firm in 1990, appointed a partner in 2001. In the summer of 2011 he was promoted to the role of CEO, and under his guidance, the firm has cemented its position as a leading player in Cyprus’ professional services scene – with over 1,000 professionals (revenue: €80 million), PwC is the largest of the Big Four firms on the island. 

Commenting on what he believes is his largest achievement during his spell, outgoing CEO Evgeniou said, “during a challenging period for the Cyprus economy, PwC managed to enhance its leading position and at the same time strengthen its relationship of trust with clients and society. I'm proud of our collective achievements and especially proud of the fact that PwC is an organisation ready and fit for the future.”

On 1 January 2022, Evgeniou will leave the office and hand over his responsibilities to Philippos Soseilos, another PwC veteran (he spent his entire 32-year at PwC with the exception of one year at rival Deloitte in the early ‘90s). Soseilos comes from the firm’s consulting division, and specialises in strategy, business implementation and digital transformation. 

He has held several leadership roles over the years, including member of the Management Board of PwC Cyprus for thirteen years and Head of People for eight years. He currently is in charge of the Business Consulting division. 

Speaking of his new challenge, CEO elect Soseilos said, “Through passion and collaboration, PwC Cyprus will continue to lead the way, investing in innovation and providing high quality services and solutions to our clients. In alignment to PwC's new global strategy ‘The New Equation’, our goal is to help our clients build trust and deliver sustained outcomes.”

Earlier this year, Deloitte named Pieris Markou as its new chief executive officer for Cyprus.
