Costas Yiassemides BA, FCCA graduated from the American University of Beirut (AUB) in 1977 with a Bachelor in Business Administration. He then joined Russell & Co in 1977 where he was positioned in the Audit & Assurance department. After gaining sufficient experience he moved on to join Costouris, Michaelides & Co (later Grant Thornton) in 1979 where he was again positioned in the Audit & Assurance department but in bigger and more complex audit engagements spanning the construction, banking, financial and retail industries. His position in Costouris, Michaelides & Co rendered the need for frequent travelling abroad, especially in Muscat, Oman, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates with his main client in these countries being Joannou & Paraskevaides (J&P), the construction magnate. During his employment in Costouris, Michaelides & Co he studied for the ACCA professional qualification which he obtained in 1990 when he became an Associate of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and, at that time, he founded Yiassemides & Co capitalizing on his long experience from his previous audit positions. In 1995 he became a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
