Alexander Papachristidis-Bove has been appointed Chairman of the Board and Managing Director of Hellespont Steamship Corp, the Piraeus-based ship management and marine services company, with effect from October 1, 2009. He replaces Dr. Mike Kennedy, who assumes the role of Managing Director of Hellespont Consultants Corp and remains responsible for the company’s newbuilding programme.

As part of a plan to streamline the organization, the Hellespont Group’s entire Piraeus-based staff will be consolidated under Hellespont Steamship Corp, from which all ship management and other marine services will be performed.

Other changes at Hellespont Steamship Corp will see an enlarged board of directors which, apart from Mr Papachristidis and Dr Kennedy, will include Marine Director Capt John Kazazis, Finance Director George Hadjigeorgiou and Technical Director Petros Tsevas. All are long-standing members of the organisation.

Alexander Papachristidis-Bove was born in Canada and educated at McGill University and the Anderson Graduate School of Management at the University of California, Los Angeles. He was employed in the Corporate Finance Department of Merrill Lynch before joining the family business permanently in 1995. He has held several positions in the Hellespont Group, the most recent of which is Managing Director of Seatramp Tankers Inc.
