BIMCO has appointed Elena Tassioula as manager of its new office in Athens. Tassioula will be engaging BIMCO’s current members in Athens and working 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,” said 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 and 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.

Tassioula will start her work at BIMCO in June. BIMCO has still to decide on the location for its office in Athens.
