AdvanFort has named Dimitrios Angelopoulos, a retired Hellenic Navy submarine commander, as its new business development manager.
His initial focus will be on maritime security opportunities in Italy, Greece, Germany and Spain.
Before joining the maritime security company, Angelopoulos worked for Hellenic Shipyards as the project manager for the 214-type submarine contract with the Hellenic Navy. As a career submarine officer, he served for 15 years in the submarine fleet, including as chief of submarine operations. He also has experience in risk and performance management in the shipping industry.
The appointment comes just weeks after a fellow Greek navy commander, Nicholas-Andrew Iliopoulos, was chosen as AdvanFort’s business development director.
