NICOLAS SPIROS APOSTOLOPOULOS
09/04/1952 – 02/10/2020
It is with great sorrow that we must announce that on the 2nd of October 2020, our founder, friend and partner, Mr Nicolas S. Apostolopoulos, passed away after having fallen ill of the Covid-19 virus in early August. After having fought courageously with the aftermath of the virus, he leaves a hole in all of our hearts. Taken too early.
Nicolas S. Apostolopoulos was born in 1952 in Athens, Greece. He studied Economics and Business Administration in London and later Maritime Law at Cardiff University where he attained his LLM. He was a member of the London Maritime Arbitrators Association (LMAA), the Chartered Institute of Transport (CIT) and was a Lecturer at the European University and the University of Piraeus in the fields of Maritime Insurance and Legal Practices. He served as Vice President of the Board of the "Hellenic Committee of Lloyd’s Brokers Association" (HCLBA) in Greece for five years and the board of the "Association of Insurance Mediators of Greece" (EADE). He started his career working for Shipowners in London in the 1970s for twenty years in ship operations, chartering, legal (specifically Messrs. Livanos / Kolokotronis / J. C Karras / Latsis / B. Papachristidis). He returned to Greece in 1992, when the Shipping company he worked for (Hellespont Steamship) moved its operations to Greece.
In 1992-1994 he took over the representation of Willis Corroon (Marine Insurance Brokers) in Greece, under the name “Willis Faber Aegean Limited”. Following the ultimate change of direction of Willis Faber in 1994, he created his own company, “Argonaut international services limited”, that was ultimately sold to shipowner interests so as to setup "Eurorisk SA", as an independent insurance broker (Marine Insurance Broker).
As the market in Greece developed and with the need to support local non-marine clients arose, he further created the company "N.S.Apostolopoulos Insurance Brokers and Consultants Ltd". A company that provides, in addition to insurance placements to Greek local insurance providers, insurance consulting services to private and corporate non-marine clients.
Mr. Apostolopoulos’ experience and knowledge in the area of insurance was wide-ranging, and included research and evaluation of the insurance markets for the best insurance solutions, risk assessment and the respective management of losses, both for ship-owning companies and for financial institutions. As a specialized Legal Adviser of Maritime Insurance he and his team has collected a vast knowledge base to be able to assist Greek Shipping Banks since 1992. Furthermore, he managed multiple claims for various Banks since he was one of the first marine insurance professionals in Greece to provide Mortgagee’s Interest insurance (MII / MAPI) to Greek banks. His team, that succeeds him, maintains the highest calibre of education and market awareness, as he trained them with the professionalism he saw was required for servicing such institutions.
His character, professionalism, vibrant personality and ethos will be missed by all who worked with and knew him.
Rest in Peace.
Born and raised into a family with a long tradition & ties with shipping.
He holds a BA degree in Economics from McGill University in Canada and a LL.M. degree in Maritime Law from the University of Southampton in the UK.
Following completion of his studies and training abroad including military service, Leonard began his career by joining the North of England P&I correspondents in Piraeus as local claims manager in 1988.
His next step was to become involved in a dual partnership that co- established and run the Piraeus branch office of Lloyd’s brokers Furness-Houlder for several years, specializing in all areas of marine insurance services.
In parallel with the aforementioned operation, Leonard was also involved with Ahrenkiel (Hellas), the Piraeus business development office of the Hamburg based shipmanagers Ahrenkiel Group, before the latter consolidated their activities in Greece with their Cyprus operation.
In 1994, and in association with other Greek partners, he set up a new operation in order to expand activities with the acquisition and operation of three bulkers , however, still catering in parallel to the marine insurance requirements of his dedicated clients in association with his extensive network of contacts in the industry worldwide.
Since 2004 he has been focusing entirely into insurance broking and claims management as co-founder of Prorisk S.A., broadening his client base and eventually merging activities with Eurorisk Marine Services Ltd. in 2010 to form Eurorisk S.A. in partnership with old mates Costas Papadopoulos and Nicholas Apostolopoulos.firstname.lastname@example.org
