Founding Director of the Imperio Group
Yiannis Misirlis is the founding Director of the Imperio Group, which was created to design and develop real estate developments that focuses on long-term value and contemporary lifestyle solutions.
His academic credentials match his innate interests and ambitions: Yiannis holds a BSc in Civil Engineering, an MSc in Information Technology from University College London (UCL), and an International MBA from Instituto de Empresa (IE) in Madrid.
Yiannis has aligned Imperio's corporate mission and vision with his own personal life and values. As a man who loves his hometown of Limassol and the sea, and swims all year round, he recognizes the beauty of the landscape and designs properties that capitalize on their surroundings. As a husband and father of two boys, his personal priorities – health, family, and community – are embedded in the company's corporate culture.
This holistic approach to real estate has made Yiannis a regular guest speaker, both locally and overseas, valued for his broad and deep insights into the Cyprus property market. His opinions and assessments have been published in the Financial Times, the Hong Kong Times, Vedomosti Moscow, Gulf News and Shanghai Times.
Under Yiannis' leadership, Imperio's investments have expanded as far as the UK and central Europe. As an entrepreneur, Yiannis is heavily involved with organisations such as the Land and Building Developers Association of Cyprus (LBDA) where he currently serves as Deputy-Chairman of the Board. He also sits on the Board of Directors of the Limassol Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI), the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce & Industry (CCCI), as well as other private companies, and is a member of Cyprus Scientific and Technical Chamber (ETEK).
In addition to being voted "Businessman of the Year 2010" by Politis newspaper, he was recently named "Manager of the Year 2017" by InBusiness magazine.
