Greek Australian Paul Nicolaou has been appointed executive director of the advocacy non-for-profit organization Business Sydney.
Nicolaou’s appointment was announced by Business NSW chief executive officer Daniel Hunter this week.
Mr. Hunter says Nicolaou will use his near three decades’ worth of experience in advocacy and philanthropy to “assist those in need” in his new position.
“Paul is well known to many of us in his most recent role at (the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry)…,” Hunter writes in a press release.
“Paul will lead Business Sydney through the challenging economic times we are currently experiencing due to COVID, to the more prosperous, exciting, and opportunistic times that are coming.”
Nicolaou studied commerce and economics at the University of New South Wales around the late ’80s and early ’90s.
He has worked in a number of senior roles across educational and political institutions, to name a few.
Business Sydney is a pro-business organization which “represents the political needs of businesses”, the Business NSW website reads.
