Making a name for yourself in the world of business is no mean feat, especially if you’re a woman. With institutional biases and societal norms stacked against them, achieving success is something to be celebrated. Anna Stylianides is one of these names, earning the title of Influential Female Director of the Year 2019 – Mining in Acquisition International’s Global Excellence Awards 2019. We look a little more closely at her life to find out more.

There are few people who have achieved so much, with such success, as Anna Stylianides. She plays a pivotal role in a number of organizations across a range of industries, but it is her influence in the world of mining for which she has become most highly regarded.

It is worth considering the background from which Ms Stylianides comes, in order to better understand how she has managed to develop and maintain an excellent reputation with such ease. While now holding posts as Director in many different organizations, she began her career in the world of corporate law. Working for the team at Webber Wentzel & Bowens after graduating from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, Ms Stylianides quickly rose through the ranks in the search for fresh opportunity.

This determination to move forward saw Ms Stylianides leave for Investec Merchant Bank Ltd. Here, she was able to explore new areas and specialize in topics such as risk management. She also gained extensive experience in the areas of corporate finance and structured finance, mergers and acquisitions, structuring, specialized finance and other banking and financial services transactions. This intimate knowledge of the finances behind decision-making put her in excellent stead for her future roles. As Ms Stylianides’s experience grew, she was able to work more closely with those who were involved in the design and structure of financial products for financial institutions and corporations.

The hard work which she undertook in the financial sector placed Ms Stylianides in an excellent position when was invited to become a Director of certain Nasdaq publicly traded companies in 1997. Her intimate knowledge of financial restructuring has proven invaluable to countless businesses and their boards, especially when combined with extensive knowledge of Canadian and SEC securities regulations.

As Ms Stylianides was able to boast more impressive, and complete, knowledge, she found herself invited to join more boards and take on more roles as Director. Her skillset made her the perfect choice for those companies looking for someone to guide them through a process of structuring transactions. To this end, she has solidly established herself within the banking, construction and mining industries, working alongside Private Equity investors to structure transactions.

“This determination to move forward saw Ms Stylianides leave for Investec Merchant Bank Ltd. Here, she was able to explore new areas and specialize in topics such as risk management. She also gained extensive experience in the areas of corporate finance and structured finance, mergers and acquisitions, structuring, specialized finance and other banking and financial services transactions.”

Ms Stylianides’s position within the industry has become unassailable, as she proudly holds the position of independent Director of Altius Minerals Corp, Entree Resources Ltd, Sabina Gold & Silver Corp and a Director of Eco Oro Minerals Corp (formerly Greystar Resources) and is serving as a Director of the Fraser Institute. She is also currently CEO at FinTec Holdings Corp., President of Uniglobe Vista Travel Ltd. and President for kTravel Solutions, Inc.

Arguably one of her biggest success stories would be her role in the national expansion strategy of the of Surgical Spaces, Inc Group of Companies. She not only took on the role of Director, but also CEO and saw it become Canada’s foremost private healthcare consolidator. Her sterling efforts ensured that the group could be sold to Centric Health, a TSX listed company, in 2011.

With such incredible achievements behind her, and an exciting future ahead, it’s little wonder that people are turning to Ms Stylianides for help. Her exceptional track record helps her to stand out from the crowd as one to watch.
