In his statements on the occasion of the award, the CEO of the organization, Mr. Eugenios Eugeniou, said that “it is very honorable for us to reward the principles and values that characterize and guide the actions of our organization. Our people are the driving force of our success and our timeless pursuit has been and remains, investing in them through innovative approaches and services.
