Professor Costas Grammenos wins Lloyds List Greek Shipping Award

Award recognises his services to shipping education

Monday, 22 February, 2010

Professor Costas Grammenos, founder of The Costas Grammenos Centre for Shipping, Trade and Finance at Cass, has been recognised by the annual Lloyd’s List Greek Shipping Awards for his services to shipping education.
Launched in 2004, the Greek Shipping Awards are organised and hosted by Lloyd’s List, the daily shipping newspaper since 1734. The awards are held annually to recognise and reward achievement and meritorious activity in the Greek shipping industry as well as to promote Greece’s status as a maritime centre. Winners are chosen by an independent panel of judges representing a broad cross-section of the Greek shipping industry.
Professor Grammenos received his award at a banquet in Athens last December where he continued to champion his favourite cause education.  He said:  Education, education, education I would say only education will secure shipping, not only in the present but also the future.
Since Professor Grammenos founded the Centre at Cass in 1983 - which now bears his name - he has seen around 2,500 students from over 100 countries pass through.  He has been a mentor to many young stars of the international shipping and banking sectors as well as others working in shipbroking, marine businesses and adjacent sectors.
