This award, together with 16 other awards, was given during a gala dinner and awards ceremony at the Athenaeum InterContinental hotel in Athens in front of 970 Greek & foreign marine executives (ship owners, ship managers, professors, attorneys, economists, etc). The other awards covered such areas as the Ship of the Year; Seafarer of the Year; Safety or Environmental Protection; Greek Shipping Personality of the year; Education or Training, etc.

 

In accepting this award the following was stated:

‘‘Many thanks for this prestigious award, which we accept also on behalf of all members of the Greek Section, who worked hard for its growth.

The Section started back in 2002 with 160 members and now has double that number.

This growth & achievements of the Greek Section were accomplished also because of the support & hospitality provided by the Mr John Angelikousis’ Group of Companies and of the ELKCO Marine Group of Companies, who provide their facilities free of charge for the technical meetings and for office space of the Section and of the SNAME European Regional Office in Paleon Faliron, respectively. Their support is deeply appreciated.’’
