Our P&I Club Chairman, Mr Dinos Caroussis, of Chios Navigation, welcomed the Greek marine broking community to a social evening, together with Thomas Miller (Hellas) Ltd. and colleagues from Thomas Miller P&I and Defence in London, at the Piraeus Sailing Club, in Mikrolimano, on the evening of Tuesday 17 May 2011.
Thomas Miller P&I Chief Executive Officer, Hugo Wynn-Williams, attended from London and provided a brief update on the excellent financial developments on the latest Club year and rounded his short talk off by displaying the Club's latest business gift - blue, yellow and white Komboloy/Begleri.
It was an excellent opportunity for our broker friends to meet the full Greek service team and over 50 brokers engaged in the Greek market attended the evening hosted by the Piraeus based claims team H1 together with Senior Underwriting Directors Paul Collier and Mark Mathews and the Regional Director, Daniel Evans.
Situated at the end of the Mikrolimano breakwater the venue offered a panoramic view of the Mediterranean as well as the yacht harbour and beyond to Athens and Glyfada. The weather held up, if a little windy, as everyone gathered in the early evening to enjoy drinks and a buffet supper.
