It is with great pleasure and honour to announce that our Founder and Honorary Chairman, Peter G. Economides, has been awarded with the "STEP Founder’s Award for Outstanding Achievement". 

STEP is the international professional body for advisers who specialise in trusts, inheritance and succession planning. A handful of STEP founding members have been awarded for being “exceptional volunteers who have made an extraordinary and outstanding long term contribution to the Society above and beyond that normally expected of a volunteer whether through office in their branch or elsewhere in the voluntary life of the Society”.

Peter, who founded STEP Cyprus in 2003, has played an important role in the branch’s development over the years, having today almost 200 members from the island’s legal, accounting, banking and trust fields. He has also been pivotal in the global recognition of Cyprus in the trust and estate sector. Last but not least, Peter has also served as a long time council member of STEP’s international committee in London and has helped to globally promote STEP’s interests.

Peter G. Economides commented: "It is an honour and privilege to be awarded with such a prestigious international award. I am delighted of course and proud at the same time. STEP has been a major part of my professional life and I have made lots of friends all over the world. I am available to help in any way I can to promote STEP Cyprus and STEP worldwide. I would like to thank all members of the STEP Cyprus Committee and the Cyprus branch in general for their support."
