The loss of Pericles Panagopoulos
It was with deep sorrow that we were informed about the passing away of the late Pericles Panagopoulos. Besides the fact that his companies and ships were Members of HELMEPA for many years, he himself offered his experience towards the evolution of HELMEPA as Board Member during the 4-year period 1998-2001. Our sadness for not having Pericles Panagopoulos among us also has a social dimension as he was the one that upgraded Greek coastal shipping and offered islanders transportation with high quality ships, while at the same time he projected internationally the Greek shipping initiative.
We wish his family every strength in dealing with his loss and may his example be followed by other members of the Greek shipping community that see far ahead, as he did.
