It is with deep sadness that EBU learns of the sudden passing of Maria Kyriacou, our Secretary General.
Maria served as an ordinary member of the EBU Board for the working period 2011-15, as the Secretary General for the period 2015-19 and was reelected at the same position for this term of office.
Maria will be profoundly missed on a personal and professional level. She was very active both within EBU and of course in Cyprus.
She will be remembered for her excellent work, human kindness and warm smile. Wherever she went, she brought some of Cyprus sunshine with her.
The EBU Board, membership, and staff express their deepest condolences to her family, friends and colleagues in Cyprus.
We shall all miss her.
