Driven by an entrepreneurial vision to build an all-encompassing energy strategy in the Eastern Mediterranean. 

Mike Germanos

Co-Founder & Group CEO

London-born Cypriot entrepreneur Mike Germanos is the founder and Group CEO of Modus Operandi Capital Management and director of the Cynergy Group’s Cynergy East Med energy acquisition and development platform.

“The Cynergy strategy was established in 2013 with the ambitious goal of solving the complex Eastern Mediterranean energy puzzle. Along with my co-founder Ian Domaille, I embarked on establishing a platform for long-term strategic investment in energy resource development, in a way that promotes regionally-aligned outcomes. I formed Cynergy for it to become the solution vehicle for the development of the region’s resources in a regionally-aligned way.”
