"The well-known successful lawyer Gregory Timagenis - specialised in maritime issues - received an award from the Association of Banking and Ship Financing Executives of Hellenic Shipping, at a ceremony held at the Piraeus Marine Club, several days ago.
The award presentation took place to honour his general contribution to the maritime industry, as well as to the establishment of the Association.
Over 100 bankers of the sector attended the event - the first organised by the Association's new board, which, for 2006, has scheduled a series of events and speeches. These are aimed at further highlighting the importance of the banking sector in shipping - a sector which handles 34 billion euros in loans."
