On December 12th, 2013, Global Reach Internet Production’s founder and CEO, Iacovos Zachariades, traveled to New York to attend the 2013 Awards Dinner organized by the Cyprus-U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Bestowed annually, the Distinguished Merit Award honors corporations and individuals who have raised the profile of Cyprus and made an extraordinary contribution in strengthening trade relations between Cyprus and the United States of America. This year’s award recipient was Dr. Ernest Jeffrey Moniz, the United States Secretary of Energy, serving under President Barack Obama since May, 2013. Dr. Moniz is one of the founding members of The Cyprus Institute. He helped to set up and conceptualize the Institute and contributed towards a collaboration agreement between the Institute and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He also headed a joint research endeavor on the strategic choices available in relation to the hydrocarbons’ reserves in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
Global Reach’s participation in this event is a continuation of the company’s interest in the Cyprus market, which in 2013 it established its operations in Cyprus with the hiring of a small team of talented software developers as well as infrastructure and managerial staff. It also marks the beginning of an ongoing relationship with the Cyprus-U.S. Chamber of Commerce. This includes the provision of support and maintenance services for the organization’s online initiatives and the future development of the means with which to facilitate the communication and exchange of knowledge and ideas between members, investors, Cypriot and American companies, and other stakeholders.
