- Leading the way!
With Mr. Spyros t. Karaolis at the helm of the Kanika Group, the exceptional foresight and vision of our Executive Chairman was honoured in December 2018, awarded as ‘Business Leader in the Tourism, Hospitality and Leisure Sector’ at the 5th CCCI (Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry) Business Leader Awards.
Acknowledging excellence in the Cyprus business world, Mr. Karaolis expressed his gratitude for the people who make Kanika Group what it is today, sharing the same beliefs, values and common goals. At the ceremony, Mr. Karaolis went on to lovingly dedicate the award to his father, Mr. Theodosis Karaolis, who first set up the company in 1975, and from whom Mr. Spyros Karaolis took over in 2009.
