Yesterday’s GMS pre-Posidonia party organised by GMS’s Dubai office was more than a success, given the best weather conditions so far – in an otherwise volatile greek weather (alike the shipping markets) and a big turn-out!
The great team of GMS dedicated to its clients and friends a very special evening at the Nobu Matsuhisa within the Astir Palace resort in Vouliagmeni, off Athens, to celebrate their success and kick-start the Posidonia 2014 June festivities; analysts, classification society executives, lawyers, politicians, shipbrokers, shipmanagers, shipowners, the media, you name it were all there!
Spotted and chatted Allied’s Nassos Hatzigeorgiou and his daughter Anna, as well as John Kostoyannis; Evangelos M. Marinakis from Capital Product Partners L.P., McQuilling (Hellas) Fotis Zeritis, my school mate Petros Doukas former greek under-secretary of Economy, maritime.gr’s Markos Kantzios and his wife Virginia E.Lyras from Angelakos (Hellas) – both good friends and compatriots.., Alex Andrews from Reed Smith, Manos Lorentzos from Seascope Hellas, Nikos Varvaropoulos from Optima Shipbrokers and many many others.
Had a good discussion with the host’s members from the Dubai office, Pavlos Katsouris, Christos Giannakopoulos, Maria Tereza Negro, and Petroula Karagianni, Karen Kokabi from Blueship, Nikos Bafaloukos from Fairdeal Marine Services, as well as with the upcoming Christina Ntaouti from Capital Link.
Ship recycling is more nearly fifty years now one of the hot spots of the shipping industry, a very important field, a sector which develops better and improving its image as all sectors of the maritime world does.
A smiling**, as always, Anil Sharma and his colleagues entertained us to the fore.
Herebelow follows his live interview to John Faraclas earlier today at the Arion Astir Palace during the Capital Link’s 4th Posidonia Analyst & Investor Day shipping forum; enjoy and comment:
