AdvanFort Company appointed Nicholas-Andrew Iliopoulos business development director. Mr. Iliopoulos is a former Greek Navy Lt. Commander and a master mariner who for nearly a decade served as the personal liaison of HM the late King Hussein Bin Talal of Jordan to the seafaring community.

“Nicholas Iliopoulos’s selection literally covers the waterfront as well as those seas of opportunity on distant shores,” said Captain William H. Watson, AdvanFort’s president.  “With more than 50 years of service, focusing not only on the bottom line but equally on the rights and protections of seafarers, having Nicholas on board puts a name and a face to maritime industry demands for both quality management and state-of-the-art standards.”

Since 2009, Mr. Iliopoulos has been a resident instructor at the Dalian Maritime University in China in addition to being an international representative for Videotel Maritime International. Receiving the accolades of colleagues and business representatives around the world, Mr. Iliopoulos is perhaps best remembered for his nearly 10 years of service to King Hussein, being directly responsible for all matters related to the sea and related institutions, including that country’s National Line and the monarch’s pleasure mega-yacht (Royal Yachts). Mr. Iliopoulos also covered the Asia-Pacific region for customers’ calling vessels, and establishing and maintaining a network of key Chinese entities.

As chief of business development Mr. Iliopoulos will initially focus on AdvanFort’s aggressive marketing strategy in Greece, as well as in the Asia-Pacific region, especially China.
