May 4, 2015 l Greek Shipping Hall of Fame inducts Goulandris and Gratsos

Two more historic shipping personalities have been inducted into the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame at the Induction Ceremony & Dinner 2015, held at the Hilton Athens. John N. Goulandris and Alkimos G. Gratsos were lauded as the Inductees for 2014 in front of about 650 guests at the event.

John N. Goulandris (1923-2011) was instrumental in establishing the N.J. Goulandris group, which was among the first major Greek shipping companies to order tankers in Japan. Mr Goulandris was remembered for being ahead of his time. In 1969, he led his family’s purchase of the Neorion Shipyards on the island of Syros, creating hundreds of jobs. He also manufactured perhaps the first electric car, the Enfield 8000.

Alkimos G. Gratsos (1907-1987) was the longest-serving president of the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping, laying the basis for the institution’s role today. He also served for 12 years as vice-president of the Union of Greek Shipowners. Together with Union president Stratis Andreadis he worked to create the legal basis for an international shipping industry in Greece. As well as shipping, he invested in land-based industry, contributing further to the Greek economy.

Our new Inductees will shortly be featured with full biographies and other media in the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame, which resides at

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.
