Christos Savvides

is responsible for the region Eastern Europe.

‘Do Different!’

Eastern Europe has been the most dynamic region for the EOS Group in the past decade. New ideas and approaches are in great demand; without his direct and open manner, Christos Savvides wouldn’t make much progress. Maybe that’s the reason the work motto of the member of EOS Group Board of Directors, with responsibility for the Eastern Europe region is: ‘Do Different!’ Each market and each culture calls for its own solutions – an international company has to assert its identity and yet also observe important differences to be successful.

Christos sees himself as a pioneer. He enjoys going new ways – opening up the markets for debt purchase in eastern Europe. In his opinion, the best solutions are produced by a combination of experience and the next generation’s fresh ideas. Collaboration with the native Cypriot, Christos, is distinguished by a keen sense of partnership and exchange on equal terms. He enjoys sharing his knowledge – and is always receptive to new influences.
