Deloitte Cyprus on Wednesday announced that it has signed a sponsorship agreement with the Cyprus Olympic Committee (Koe), valid until the end of 2024, the year of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Deloitte joined the Cyprus Olympic Committee’s sponsorship programme as a Professional Services Sponsor.

As part of the sponsorship cooperation, a Koe delegation headed by President Georgios Chrysostomou visited Deloitte’s headquarters in Nicosia and met with Chief Executive Officer Pieris Markou.


The delegation, which was accompanied by gymnastics champion Anna Sokoleva and Judo champion Georgios Balarjishvili, also included Administrative Officers Giorgos Korellis and Giorgos Panagidis, as well as Press Officer Nikos Sofiopoulos.

On behalf of Deloitte, Giorgos Pantelidis (Chief Strategy Officer), Michelle Karaolides (Head of the Marketing and Communication Department) and Charalambos Charalambous (Lawyer at Deloitte Legal and member of the Cyprus National Archery Team) were also present.

“Our experience from the collaboration in previous years when Deloitte had the role of auditors of Koe is the best. Just recently, Deloitte and the International Olympic Committee announced their global partnership to promote the Olympic Movement until 2032,” Koe president Georgios Chrysostomou said.

“Our partnership, therefore, moves to the Professional Services Sponsorship level, and we will do our best to honour it in full,” he added.

Referring to the agreement, Pieris Markou noted that “we are particularly happy and proud, as today our collaboration with the Cyprus Olympic Committee is formalised, with which we will accompany the journey to the 2024 Olympic Games as a Professional Services Sponsor of the Commission”.

“This collaboration is the extension of the global relationship maintained by Deloitte with the International Olympic Committee, with a horizon of more than 10 years. Having as a guide our purpose “to make an impact that matters”, we could not be absent from the side of the Cyprus Olympic Committee and our athletes,” he added.

“There are, after all, so many things that Deloitte shares with sports: health, well-being, fair play, friendship, solidarity. Concepts that unite us and that make us fellow travellers of the Cyprus Olympic Committee in its noble struggle and purpose, to create a better future through sports,” Markou concluded.
