After 37 years of working faithfully for MAN Diesel & Turbo Hellas, Dimitris Vlantos retired on 30 September, 2014. He originally joined MAN Diesel & Turbo in 1977 and played a prominent role in driving the company’s major developments and changes, enabling it to successfully face the changing needs and expectations of the Greek shipping industry.
Promoted to Managing Director in 2007, Vlantos guided the Hellenic subsidiary into sustainable growth until the beginning of January 2014 when his successor, Dionissis Christodoulopoulos, assumed his position with Vlantos continuing in a supporting role as project manager. Christodoulopoulos (MBA, Mechanical Engineer) joined the company in 2009 and has a deep knowledge of the shipping industry and market needs.
