April 8, 2016 | John C. Carras and Stavros Daifas inducted into Greek Shipping Hall of Fame

Two more historic shipping personalities have been inducted into the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame.

John C. Carras and Stavros Daifas were lauded as the Inductees for 2015 in front of 600 guests at a special Induction Ceremony & Dinner held at the Megaron, The Athens Concert Hall.

John C. Carras (1907-1989) was one of the most dynamic shipowners of the 1950s to 1970s and served as Chairman of the Greek Shipping Co-operation Committee (GSCC) in London in 1963-1965. Always devoted to Greece, he supported a closer relationship between Greek shipping and the Greek economy. He invested in a range of onshore businesses and created the country’s most prestigious resort, Porto Carras, from 1963, in Halkidiki.

Stavros Daifas (1927-2014) is well-remembered as a self-made shipowner and above all as a key personality of the Piraeus shipping community after the return of democracy to Greece in 1974. Daifas worked to strengthen relations between shipowners and seafarers, and to increase the standing of Piraeus as an international maritime centre. Outside shipping, his great passion was Piraeus football club Olympiacos FC. Daifas was president of Olympiacos from 1979 to 1987 and 1992 to 1993, leading the team to five consecutive Greek League Championships and two Greek Cups.

The Inductees for 2015 will shortly be featured with full biographies and other media in the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame, which resides at www.greekshippinghalloffame.org

Voting for Inductees takes place annually and is open to members of the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame Academy, currently numbering about 300 members. The integrity of the on-line voting system and the results are overseen by the international audit firm, Deloitte.

An independent organisation established to bring the fascinating story of Greek shipping to a wider public, the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame has been paying tribute to leading personalities from Greece’s past shipping history since 2007.

With the addition of John C. Carras and Stavros Daifas, the Hall of Fame now includes 24 outstanding personalities of the shipping world.
