Marina Kyriakou is the CEO and founder of Fight ENDO Australia and serves on it’s board of directors.

Over the course of her 25 years with the executive management, she worked in every department, across every region, and in every role, gaining a deep understanding of its capabilities in the process.
Prior to becoming CEO, Marina served as Chairman of the Executive Committees, where she provided strategic direction for the Pharmaceutical and Consumer Health sectors and supervised the phasing of clinical trials, SAS compassionate medications, and the Global Supply Chain.
Throughout her 25-year tenure, Marina has held positions in Pharmaceutical, Medical Management, Allied Health, and Hospital Leadership in the public and private sectors.

Marina’s ENDO Journey:
From the age of 16 to the age of 40, when she was diagnosed with stage IV Endometriosis, Marina has experienced a long and agonising journey with endometriosis. She is committed to the disease’s research and is very compassionate for those suffering from the disease. After undergoing several treatments and multiple surgeries, she was forced to make the difficult decision to undergo a hysterectomy and a bowel resection. Unfortunately, endometriosis prevented her from conceiving her own children since it spread to her main organs. Marina hopes that she will be able to inspire and educate the next generation, as well as raise awareness and promote research for a brighter future.
