Greece’s Allied Shipbroking plans to beef up its QuantumSea research and valuation department further after bringing in Chara Georgousi.

The Athens shop said Georgousi is joining as a market analyst, having spent the past two years in the research and valuations department of rival Greek outfit Intermodal Shipbrokers.

Allied director Ilias Bolis told TradeWinds she will form a team of three senior analysts.

He said this number is already being expanded with more senior analysts, as Allied views the department as very important to its operations.

Georgousi has also worked for herself in property investment since 2012.

Before Intermodal, she was a project coordinator at Kuwait Oil Tanker Co for nearly two years, and was previously at BMW Financial Services.

“She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in financial analysis, market research and asset valuation, which will be invaluable to our ongoing and future projects,” Allied said.

Georgousi holds two master’s degrees, one in banking, accounting and finance and one in marine transport and management, having been educated at the University of Nicosia and Newcastle University.

“Her keen analytical skills and dedication to excellence will undoubtedly contribute to our mission of providing you with the most reliable and comprehensive insights,” her new employer added in a note to clients.

“We are excited to have her on board and about the fresh perspective she will bring to the department,” Allied said.

The QuantumSea department also features Thomas Chasapis as lead analyst, supported by quantitative analyst Matthew Harrington.

“We look forward to the continued success and strengthened relationships with our clients under her valuable guidance,” Allied added.

The brokerage focuses on newbuilding, secondhand, chartering and recycling in tankers and dry cargo.

QuantumSea carries out analysis and consultancy, valuations, reporting and finance work.
