Once approved by the ECB, Sofianos will also participate as a member of the Audit Committee.
Sofianos is a graduate of the University of Manchester in the UK where he was awarded an honours degree in chemical engineering, with a major in mathematical modelling and computer simulation.
He is a qualified chartered accountant and one of the founding partners of Deloitte, Greece. He retired in 2016 after 40 years in the profession.
Sofianos currently serves as audit committee chairman of Aegean Airlines.
Bank of Cyprus also announced that Maksim Goldman has informed the boards that consistent with good corporate governance on rotation matters, he will not be standing for re-election as vice chairman in the upcoming AGM, after having served close to five years in this position.
The Boards of BoC Holdings and the Bank further announce that Anat Bar Gera has submitted her resignation as a member of both boards to pursue alternative business opportunities.
