Komodromos, who was the vice-chairman of the utility’s board was chosen as the new head after the resignation of the previous chairperson, Emily Yiolitis over conflict of interest in her capacity as a lawyer.

The board’s new vice-chairman is civil engineer Giorgos Nikolettos while academician and Haris Millas who is also head of a group of companies has been appointed as a member of the board.

Yiolitis resigned just six months after her appointment after it was determined she had a conflict of interest.

She resigned at the beginning the month, saying it was her decision after she had been informed by the incompatibility committee that she had a conflict of interest because her legal firm represented casino operators Melco, which was negotiating with the utility company on the plans and construction of a station to power the Limassol casino facility.
