AAL Management Strengthened

Schoeller Holdings has demonstrated its ongoing support of AAL, with the relocation of Kyriacos Panayides from the Group’s headquarters in Cyprus, to Singapore, to take up the position of Managing Director. Kyriacos has been involved with AAL since its inception in 1995, holding a seat on the Board of Directors. A staunch advocate for growth and with 25 years experience within the shipping and maritime industry, Kyriacos will oversee AAL’s next stage of business development.

He commented, ‘My focus will be on the corporate side of the business; ensuring that our management systems and infrastructure are in line with our growth plans and that our profile is enhanced further with key industry and company stakeholders. We will continue to embrace the dynamic and entrepreneurial approach to business that defines us and seek-out lucrative and sustainable opportunities for our own and our customers’ businesses.’

He concluded by saying, ‘Christophe Grammare and Namir Khanbabi will continue their valuable work as Managing Directors of the Liner Services and Tramp & Projects divisions, respectively. They will focus on our operations and the quality of our customer services – making sure that AAL continues to meet both customer needs and our business objectives.’
