VesselsValue has appointed Dr Alexander Adamou to the board of directors.

As an experienced mathematician and modeller in the shipping industry, Adamou will oversee the scientific research that underpins the company’s products in his role as chief scientist. He first joined VesselsValue in 2010, when he led the development of the company’s first asset valuation model.

Adamou said: “I cannot recall a time when supply chains have been more in the spotlight than now, generating a desire for new products in the market to make sense of them. Moreover, I am encouraged by how heavily VesselsValue is investing in scientific research to tackle difficult problems in estimation and forecasting, allowing us to offer unique products and services in shipping, aviation, and beyond. I look forward to sharing the fruits of this investment with our clients.”
