Meet Filuet – Omiros Christodoulides
Filuet News’ Publisher and Editor recently spoke with our beloved COO about his Filuet journey, his private life and the future. He is with us since 2003, we are happy to introduce Omiros Christodoulides!
Ella Omire! How are you today?
Hello! taking in to consideration these bizarre circumstances we live in, I would say I am perfect!!
Re, the company want’s to know who you are! can you please tell us a bit about yourself? some general history and free time stories are welcome here :).
My name is Omiros Christodoulides and I am from Cyprus, a small island in the Mediterranean. I am married and have 2 lovely sons. I have a Bachelors degree in Accounting & Financial Management from Colchester University in Essex, UK. I like cooking, fishing, hunting and watching sports. Favorite meal is a toughie; I would say sautéed partridge. As to the beverage, the answer is more straight forward, that is wine. Favorite way of spending time is the easiest question so far, with family and close friends while barbequing.
Please tell us about your time with Filuet; When you got on board? How was your journey since then?
You know, I do remember my first day so vividly, like it was yesterday. I joined on the 23rd of September 2003. I started as the operations manager for the Filuet/Herbalife unit in Cyprus. A few years later I was promoted to the position of Country Manager of the same unit. In 2008 I was further promoted to my current position, that is the COO of the Filuet Group. In 2017 we celebrated Filuet 25th anniversary, as a part of the main ceremony the main shareholders surprised me with an amazing present – I became a minor shareholder of the company. The journey so far was perfect as I am surrounded by great professionals and most importantly great friends.
What person, real or imagined, living or dead, would you most like to have dinner with and why?
Here you will allow me to go a bit outside the rules by mentioning 2 living football legends. These are no other than Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho. In my opinion they are without a doubt, 2 of the best football players of all time, and Ronaldinho is now a fellow drunk from Brazil so must be hell of a fun.
As these strange times lead us to digitalize our internationality, we would like to ask you what is your favorite/ dream destination for vacation & ultimate destination for work?
I love Cyprus but I have visited some gorgeous cities around the world, such us Saint Petersburg, Vienna, Bucharest and many more. I would have to say that my dream destination is Asia as I have never been there and from what I hear and from what I see on the web, it would be an extraordinary experience. As for work, I would only change Cyprus, for Bordeaux or Tuscany😊.
Editor note: Filuet Tuscany branch…. It’s a dream!
Where are you seeing Filuet in 10 years from now?
Filuet will always be expanding its wings since it is very adaptive with great management and very promising young stars.
That’s it, would you like to use this opportunity and forward a message to Filuet team?
Yes, would love to convey a message to the Filuet Team and especially to the more junior and new employees. Actually, this is the same message I shared on the 25th year Filuet Anniversary when the Founder of our group announced on stage that I will be becoming a company shareholder.
“Love the company and the company will most definitely love you back”
