Simpson Spence Young (SSY) has today announced the opening of a new office in Athens, Greece as part of SSY’s continued growth and expansion plans.

Managed by SSY Dry Cargo broker Nicholas Vamvakaris, the office will consist of teams from the Dry Cargo division who focus on Cape, Panamax and the Handy Supra markets.

Seen as one of the key hubs for shipping, SSY also has plans to expand the remit of this office in the near future to include other departments.

Mark Richardson, Chairman of SSY commented:“We are very pleased to open SSY Hellas, and to have our brokers present in Athens. It has long been part of our plans to have local representation in one of the most significant shipping locations in the world, and we look forward to hopefully seeing more of our clients in 2022.”

Stanko Jekov, Global Head of Dry Cargo commented: “This is a very exciting time for us. As we continue to grow, we are always looking for new opportunities to develop and expand into new territories and markets. Being in Athens not only provides us with the ability to better support our clients there, but also enables us to be part of a community that has been at the core of shipping throughout history.”
