“A CEO Odyssey: Transformation & Multiculturalism (from Cyprus to Melbourne)”
“Mr Savvides exemplifies the contributions that Cypriot Australians have made to this country, in many ways,” Mr Gordon Preece, Director of Ethos, told Neos Kosmos.

An evening in honour of George Savvides AM, will be held next Friday at The Avenue in Parkville, organised by Ethos (Centre of Christianity and Society) to celebrate his outstanding integrity and engagement in his professional life, over a lifetime.

Specifically, the Cypriot Australian Chair of SBS will be awarded with the Faith and Work Award 2023, which is given every year by Ethos to an Australian who has shown an exceptional contribution to society, by integrating their faith with their work.

“Mr Savvides exemplifies the contributions that Cypriot Australians have made to this country, in many ways,” Mr Gordon Preece, Director of Ethos, told Neos Kosmos.

He added that every year, Ethos chooses to honour one Australian who has made an impact in society, who knows how to operate within a pluralistic society, in their profession with respect to everyone, their beliefs and values.

George Savvides was also made a Member of the Order of Australia in 2020 for “significant service to the community, to charitable groups, and to business.”

Before being appointed Chair of SBS, Savvides was Chair of World Vision and had been for many years CEO of Medibank and other health-related businesses.

During the formal dinner that is being held next Friday 1 September, Savvides will also give a speech titled ‘A CEO Odyssey: Transformation and Multiculturalism (from Cyprus to Melbourne)’.

The evening is open to anyone who wishes to attend.

Where: Ridley College Dining Room, 160 The Avenue, Parkville Vic.
