Council member biography - Odysseus Tavros

  • Admitted to ICAEW: 1992
  • Joined Council: 2021
  • Election Constituency: Cyprus 


I qualified as an ACA in London in 1991. I began my career at Ball Baker Leake/Mazars a fantastic traditional 250 employee firm off the Strand in London. This was followed by PKF London, a national firm and finally a move as a manager to Grays Inn Road in Central London with M Aris & Co, a three partner practice specialising in partnerships and family owned business.

For personal reasons I came to Cyprus and joined KPMG, followed by Coopers & Lybrand as a manager. I specialised in the offshore sector.

Due to family issues, I left Coopers & Lybrand and took up a position as a General Manager of a small Hotel in Paphos, while at the same time supporting Globaltraining, University of Nicosia with the ACA qualification.

In 2000 I became a full-time member of staff at Globaltraining with the responsibility of the Chartered Accounting programme and in 2008 I was promoted to Director. I currently hold the position of Deputy CEO and our new subsidiary Invictus in Limassol.

I have instrumental in the expansion of ICAEW qualification in Cyprus, Romania, Greece and Mauritius since 2000. One of my key responsibilities as a Deputy CEO is to visit and talk on a daily basis with all ICAEW approved training firms.

I am happily married to Theodora for 23 years and we have two lovely children, Elena and Andreas.
