The important role that Members from Europe play within the Britannia P&I Club was among the issues discussed at its annual European Members Forum held on 9 November in Athens.
The Forum, now in its 21st year, which was attended by 52 Members from across Europe, underlined the Club’s commitment to remaining accessible while providing Members with a personalised service.
The Forum coincided with the announcement that Britannia will be opening an office in Greece within 2018.
“Holding the European Forum in Greece was important given that it is the home to many of the world’s major shipowners, a number of whom are Britannia Members. Opening a Britannia office in Greece will mean that we can enhance the personalised service to those and future Greek Members,” said Andrew Cutler, CEO of Tindall Riley (Britannia) Ltd.
Dale Hammond (Director, FD&D and claims director for the Club’s Greek membership) and Simon Williams (Director, Underwriting and who has underwriting oversight for the Club’s Greek membership) will oversee arrangements for establishing the office.
