Andreas Bisbas is Director of Tsakos Shipping (London), a Greek shipping company member of the Union of Greek Shipowners. He is also on the Members’ Representative Committee of the Britannia P&I Club, a member of the ITOPF Board and sits on Intertanko’s Insurance and Legal Committee. Prior to joining the Tsakos Group, Mr. Bisbas spent 23 years as a marine insurance broker at Lloyd’s.
Without shipping there would be no international trade and without insurance there would be no ship finance and no shipping as we know it.
Insurance is an essential component of the shipping industry and I am very proud that the expertise within the ICS Insurance Committee and the Secretariat fosters better understanding between insureds and insurers and helps resolves complex issues, often before they become a problem.
