Michael J.Antoniou was the founder of the firm in 1984 in Nicosia. Michael studied in America, after obtaining a full scholarship for his exceptionally high performance at Terra Santa College. After his studies in Seattle, Washington, Michael moved to the City of London where he obtained his qualification as a Chartered Accountant (ACA) in 1981 whilst he was working for Touche Ross (currently known as Deloitte). After almost 10 years of working in London, Michael moved back to Cyprus and worked for Metaxas, Loizidis, Syrimis & Co (currently known as KPMG) in Limassol before setting up his own practice in 1984. At the same time, Michael was a lecturer at the University of Nicosia, teaching ACA/ACCA and passing on his knowledge and experience to young students.

Michael's dedication, hard work and high quality standards were easily recognised by his clients and network and thus enabled him to create long-standing relationships, synergies and an extensive network of professional contacts. Michael is a husband and a father of 4 children, 3 of which are Chartered Accountants, whilst the whole family is working within the Accounting and Banking sector.
