Subsequently, the business has just opened a new office premises in The Athenian Riviera with an additional summer base in Porto Heli, to accommodate the highly experienced team which will support the needs of Sea-Alliance Group’s Mediterranean customers and partners.
The Greece based team has been carefully selected to offer specialised expertise led by Office Manager, Asimina Papadimitriou who has a strong maritime management background. Asimina’s qualifications in Maritime Management from Solent University make her perfectly placed to take on the role along with her hands-on experience garnered from working as a Captain of a 90ft motor yacht for four years.
Asimina commented on her role; “As the Office Manager, I’m involved in all the company's activities, sales, charters and the day-to-day operations. I also cooperate with the sister companies' employees to ensure all services provided follow the standards set by the Shareholders.
I really like the SAG family. From the beginning, I’ve always felt like a valued member of the team as they really appreciate the people that work for them. The people within the company are truly unique and I enjoy working within this energy and have an alignment with the vision and purposes of SAG: Large enough to deliver; Small enough to care.”
Starting out in the Merchant Navy in the role of cadet then becoming a 2nd Officer, Asimina has enjoyed a professional life afloat and is now looking forward to a more shore-based role. Her passion for boats, particularly the engineering and structural side, makes her perfectly placed to support the sales, charter and operational side of the business, whilst supporting both the shareholders and the local team and being involved in marina development.
Asimina is joined by the Operations Manager, Manousos Syngelakis, who will be involved across the business and comes from a marine background having worked in Greece for a yacht management company. Manousos has a Master’s degree in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering from Greenwich University, giving him an excellent insight into the technical side of yachting and a real passion for the sea and all types of yachts and their mechanical aspects.
