Lloyd's Register (LR) has boosted its management focus in Greece, Cyprus and Israel with a number of significant appointments to support the needs of its marine and offshore clients.

Nikos Tsatsaros takes on the role of Commercial Manager for Greece, Cyprus and Israel, leading an already strong local team. The team has been further enhanced with the additions of Katerina Kontogianni and Theodore Kourmpelis.

With a 14-year career in LR, Tsatsaros brings a wealth of technical and commercial experience. Starting out as a seagoing engineer before joining LR as a surveyor in Liverpool, UK, he has spent much of his career in China, undertaking the role of surveyor in charge in Zhoushan-Ningbo.

Kontogianni has more than a decade of experience shared between classification and ship operation, having worked closely with top management of tanker operators, and with a strong background in safety, environmental, energy systems management and regulatory compliance.

Kourmpelis previously worked as an Electro-Technical Surveyor in LR's Greek Technical Support Office, and has dealt with complex multidiscipline projects and type approvals for electrical and control components as well as being involved with alternative fuels projects.

LR Commercial Manager for South Europe, Anthi Miliou, said: “These changing times for the shipping industry demand not only continuous support but also new perspectives so that we are well positioned to address our clients’ evolving needs. Under Nikos’ leadership, the enhanced team will offer a fresh outlook to help our customers capitalise on new opportunities. As always, we are committed to supporting our clients, connecting tomorrow’s thinking to challenges of today with this dedicated team.

Tsatsaros said: “I am truly excited to be part of the Greek commercial team, on their continuing journey of delivering value to Greek, Cypriot and Israeli customers. As their needs are at the core of our strategic path ahead, I will ensure that the team will continue to support our clients and help them navigate these changing times.”

LR’s commercial team, supporting Greece, Cyprus and Israel, covers a broad spectrum of activities, from ship construction and service support to the safe adoption of new technologies.
