Appointment of new Greek Cypriot Member, Mr. Nestoras Nestoros
(Nicosia, 7 April 2014) – The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) welcomes the appointment of the new Greek Cypriot Member, Mr. Nestoras Nestoros, who took up his functions on 2 April 2014.
Mr. Nestoros brings with him extensive experience in both the public and the private sector. From 2009 to 2014, Mr. Nestoros worked for the Cyprus Land Development Corporation, prior to this for the Electromechanical Services. Mr. Nestoros holds a degree in Marine Engineering from the Higher Technical Institute in Cyprus and a Master degree (MEng) with honors in Engineering from the University of Brunel, UK. He is married and has 2 children.
He replaces Mr. Theophilos Theophilou who resigned for personal reasons and whom the CMP thanks for his service. During Mr. Theophilou’s tenure, the CMP achieved its best performance to date. With 140 identified missing persons returned to their families and an unprecedented 2.5 million EUR in donor funding, 2013 was the most successful year for the CMP. The Committee is looking forward to work with Mr. Nestoros in order to build on these achievements.
