Stavros Petrakides

Stavros has been the Managing Director of the CHAPS Developers Group of Companies since its incorporation in 2001. He is very well known for his wide spectrum of knowledge and professional experience, as is evidenced by his direct involvement with the accounting profession, the provision of financial services and the banking industry.

Stavros started his career working as an auditor for one of the ‘big four’ firms in Cyprus and then in the financial services sector where he worked for some of the biggest organizations in the country. He later moved into the banking profession where he served as a credit officer, as a member of the bank’s offshore operations unit and as the head of the bank’s London factoring unit. His next step was to establish his own financial services company, which he later sold to one of the biggest financial services providers in Cyprus, and to incorporate the CHAPS Developers Group of Companies, where he is still serving as a member of the board. He was also recently appointed a non-executive director for two offshore financial services entities which are regulated by CySEC.

Stavros graduated as a Chartered Certified Accountant and is currently a fellow member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (FCCA) and a member of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Cyprus (ICPAC).
