Shipowners’ Club has announced the opening of a new service office in Greece. The opening of the new premises on September 19th which is based in the port city of Piraeus, was officiated with a blessing conducted by the priest of St Nicholas Church.
The Club said that it had been encouraged over the years by a steady growth in its Greek business. CEO Simon Swallow said that “the opening of our new office is a mark of our gratitude to our Members and their brokers for their exemplary support over a number of years. By investing in a Greek service office we are able to provide enhanced support for both operators and our network of correspondents in the region who perform an invaluable service as the eyes and ears of the association.”
The Club’s core insurance activities will continue to be overseen by the London office, with the Greek office providing local support.
