Andreas Neocleous

Andreas Neocleous is the first CEO of Cyta, Cyprus’ largest telecommunications organization, to have been appointed from the private sector. On assuming his duties in January 2019, he redefined the organization’s vision and set it on a course of growth and dynamic evolution, which has since resulted in a significant increase in revenue and profitability.

Under his leadership, Cyta dealt effectively with COVID-19, simultaneously supporting households, businesses and all state services. During the same period, he negotiated and signed a landmark agreement allowing the broadcasting of all Cypriot football matches by all the island’s TV platforms.

Before taking up his duties at Cyta, he was, among others, Director of Business and Customer Experience at MTN Cyprus, Commercial Manager at Ericsson and a Senior Technology Analyst at Goldman Sachs in London and New York. Through the course of his career, he has gained deep knowledge and experience of issues relating to leadership, reform, modernization and corporate culture transformation.
