Axios founder wins computing industry’s star role
Mrs Symeonides, Sales and Marketing Director of the firm, which specializes in Help Desk and Service Management, was “a champion of the advancement of women in IT,” Support World magazine said in its review of 2005.
“Despite her hectic schedule she dedicates much time to the promotion of the Axios ‘A’ Star Awards which have developed into one of the UK’s most prestigious competitions for female IT students,” it added.
Mrs Symeonides set up the annual ‘A’ Star Awards in 2000 as an initiative to encourage more girls to study and take up careers in computing, an industry which is heavily dominated by men. She has attracted some of the world’s top IT companies - including Accenture, IBM and Microsoft - as sponsors.
