Fleet Management Limited is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. To kick off the string of celebrations, FLEET organised its first gala dinner in Cyprus. On 6 September at the Hilton Park in Nicosia, the celebration was abuzz with the participation of over 300 distinguished ship owners and key stakeholders including His Excellency Mr Nicos Anastasiadis, President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mrs Natasa Pilides, Deputy Minister of Shipping, Mr Constantinos Yiorkatzis, Mayor of Nicosia and Dr R.K Raghavan, the High Commissioner of India. To host the guests, Mr Harry Banga, the Chairman and CEO of the Caravel Group, Mr Kishore Rajvanshy, Managing Director of Fleet Management Limited, and Mr Sunil Kapoor, Director of FML Ship Management Limited, along with other senior executives of FLEET and Caravel Group were also in attendance. Mr Harry Banga, the Chairman and CEO of the Caravel Group, said:
Cyprus has become an extremely important centre for our global ship management operations. Our growth and footprint in Cyprus have gone from strength to strength and has perhaps mirrored the emergence of this Mediterranean Island as a global powerhouse in the maritime industry. Given the growth of our business in Cyprus, combined with the positive receptivity that we’ve had to our three earlier celebratory milestones celebrated here, I don’t see how we could have chosen a different location, to kick-start our Silver Jubilee, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Fleet Management.
Mr Kishore Rajvanshy, Managing Director, Fleet Management Limited, said,
Celebrating our 25th Anniversary in Cyprus is our small way of saying thank you to our customers and patrons here as Cyprus remains our largest centre for ship management in urope. From 1 to 500+ ships across diverse ship types, our journey has been completely organic and driven by the passion of hundreds of shore colleagues and thousands of seafarers. We have learnt from each other, grabbed every opportunity we could, and molded our 25-year success story, step by step.
FLEET’s next 25th-anniversary celebration is lined up in Tokyo on 2 October 2019.
