ZeroNorth appoints Mike Konstantinidis to level up sensor data in new business unit


Copenhagen-based technology company ZeroNorth has today announced it has appointed Mike Konstantinidis as Managing Director of Vessel Optimisation and Head of ZeroNorth’s Athens Office.

In this role, Mike will head up a new business area focused on bringing high frequency data captured by on-board sensors to the ZeroNorth platform, enriching its data analysis capabilities and giving further training data input for existing data models.

This new high frequency data will further enrich ZeroNorth’s data ecosystem and provide extra insight to customers by enhancing their decision-making, commerciality and sustainability. The new sensor-based input will also continually train and improve ZeroNorth’s existing data models.

Commenting on his appointment, Mike Konstantinidis (pictured) said: “ZeroNorth is doing a great job in helping its customers navigate digitalisation and decarbonisation in this new era of shipping. I am delighted to join the company to broaden its data to include high frequency sensor data analysis.

“The industry is on a journey of digital transformation. In my role at ZeroNorth, I am excited to provide the analysis of even more data sources to our customers, helping them to optimise decision-making for profit and planet.”

Mike has worked in the technology space for more than 35 years, joining the shipping industry just over 6 years ago. He has a wealth of experience in software, systems integration and in his last role as Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer at METIS Cyberspace Technology SA, Mike was powering the digital transformation of maritime through artificial intelligence. He brings this knowledge and expertise to his new role at ZeroNorth.

Commenting on Mike joining the company, Søren Meyer, CEO at ZeroNorth, said: “I am incredibly excited for Mike to join the ZeroNorth team, bringing his expertise in high frequency data to enrich our data analysis and fuel modelling capabilities. His experience in both the maritime and technology industries will deepen our knowledge and ability to help customers navigate their digital transformation as the industry embraces more high frequency data to drive the green transition.”
