A prominent example of the synergy between Greek shipping and US entrepreneurship is the American Hellenic Hull Insurance Company, a successful partnership between the American P & I Club and Hellenic Hull Management.

AHHIC, based in Cyprus, launched its operation in July 2016 and is currently the fastest-growing hull and machinery insurance company in the world of shipping.

This is supported by data presented by Ilias Tsakiris, CEO of American Hellenic Hull, to the company’s Board of Directors’ meeting of the 9th October in Cyprus, as September marked completion of an operationally profitable second quarter for the company with the insured fleet reaching 2,160 vessels representing 167 managing companies internationally.

“We at American P&I Club welcome the company’s dynamic growth and we will continue to support American Hellenic as we firmly believe that it represents a new, growing, dynamic force in marine insurance markets across the world”, said Vince Solarino, the Chairman of American Hellenic Hull.

Company CEO Ilias Tsakiris told “newmoney.gr”: “Out of respect for our clients, we approach insurance as a social imperative. One of the things that distinguishes American Hellenic from competitors is that while we operate in the largest international shipping centers, on the other hand we offer bespoke services to our clients every step of the way operating as a local provider. We focus on providing highly innovative insurance products to shipowners, while we aim to double the value of the company’s initial investment within the next five years”.

American Hellenic Hull supports the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame for the third time in a row

The Greek Shipping Hall of Fame’s fourth annual Induction Ceremony & Dinner took place on the evening of Monday 19 March at Megaron, The Athens Concert Hall.

About 630 guests from the Greek shipping community, key business partners and friends from overseas enjoyed the Welcome Drinks Reception and an exciting Induction Ceremony programme that celebrated Greek shipping and its remarkable history.

American Hellenic Hull sponsored the annual Greek Shipping Hall of Fame event for the third time. CEO Ilias Tsakiris stated: “American Hellenic Hull Insurance Company is once more delighted to support the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame. We feel a strong connection with this event because it conveys the important message that Greek shipping still leads and navigates the industry. We welcome the opportunity to come together this evening to honor Greek shipowners as risk takers and achievers. Today, we see the Greek fleet is as strong as ever and continuing to grow.  American Hellenic Hull Insurance Company’s global network is there to meet its evolving needs.”

A highlight of the 2018 Induction Ceremony was the announcement of the latest Inductees to the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame – the 2017 Inductees. The Inaugurators for 2017, Alekos N. Goulandris and Vasilis M. Mavroloeon, were mentioned through interviews with the family and warmly welcomed for their contribution and achievements at the prestigious event. This marked the 10th anniversary of the birth of the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame when the very first four Inductees were unveiled in a short ceremony back in 2007 – an event that was also remembered and celebrated during this year’s programme.

The Greek Shipping Hall of Fame donated a portion of the event proceeds to the Greek children’s charity, Hellenic Hope (www.hellenic-hope.org) by the internationally-renowned classical crossover singing star Mario Frangoulis, showing once again that the Greek shipping community actively contributes to wider social needs.
