The shipping industry mourns the passing of John A Angelicoussis

It is with deep sorrow we learned of the death of John A Angelicoussis.

John Angelicoussis was born in Chios in 1948 and joined his father Anthony’s company Agelef Shipping as a 25-year-old in 1973, where the company chartered their then modest fleet of bulkers and tankers from their London offices.

After his father’s death in 1989, John Angelicoussis’s vision saw them grow their tanker fleet in both the crude oil and large product carrier markets adding to their already fast-growing bulk carrier fleet, and in the early 2000’s entered into the highly specialised LNG market where the company now operates some of the worlds most sophisticated gas carriers.

This impressive fleet operating under the more familiar name of Maran today consists of some 150 vessels of over 28 million DWT servicing major oil companies, iron ore companies, steel mills and energy utility companies. Known simply as JA to his colleagues he led the company by example arriving to work early in the day and often the last to leave.

Angelicoussis remained committed to both UK and Greece dividing his time between group offices in London’s Westminster area and Athens, where he passed away with his family close to him. We send our heartfelt condolences to his wife Elizabeth, his daughter Maria and his three grandchildren; also to his sister Anna and her family.
