BIMCO Hires Manager For Athens Office
BIMCO has signed a contract with Elena Tassioula as manager of BIMCO’s new office in Athens, Greece. Elena will be engaging BIMCO’s current members in Athens and work to grow the membership in Greece.
“I’m very pleased that Elena will be joining our team. She has worked in shipping, but she also has experience from other industries, and that will enable her to look at how we do things with fresh eyes,” says Erik Jensby, BIMCO Head of Business Development.
BIMCO’s goal with an office in Athens is to have a stronger presence in Greece and a much closer dialogue with BIMCO’s existing and potential members.
BIMCO sees the services offered to members, such as the Support & Advice hotline, Shipping KPI and SmartCon as very valuable because of the increase in regulation, a very competitive market and – in general – a more complex shipping environment.
Elena will start her work at BIMCO in June.
At this point – BIMCO has not settled on an office location in Athens.
