Mr Eliades commented ‘’This is a great honor which could not have been achieved it if were not for the support of my family and colleagues. In 1977 I started Pafilia, and today it has grown into a large international organization operating across the world. This is something I am extremely proud of, and as we grow and evolve we will always hold dear our original values, a family-owned company, founded on close-relationships. Moving forwards will continue to develop communities, using Minthis and ONE as our benchmarks, and continually engage in initiatives that enrich and strengthen the environment’’.
