His latest episode is with Aristidis Alafouzos. Aristidis is the Chief Executive Officer for Okeanis Eco Tankers, ECO (NYSE) & OET (Oslo).

In this episode of the podcast, interesting questions concerning the Alafouzos legacy, the year ahead for OET, green fuels matters, the recent listing in New York stock exchange and other many issues raised, captivate and engage both guests and listeners.

The New York Stock Exchange welcomed executives and guests of Okeanis Eco Tankers to celebrate its listing. To honor the occasion, Ioannis Alafouzos, the Chairman, rang the bell for the opening of the Wall Street.

The company has a modern and unique tanker fleet that has outperformed most of their competitors over the last years.

Its sailing fleet consists of six modern scrubber-fitted suezmax tankers and eight modern scrubber-fitted VLCC tankers.

The Alafouzos family vehicle recently listed its shares on the New York Stock Exhange (NYSE), a decision that is believed to expand its ‘investor reach’ and facilitate its long-term vision of becoming the listed crude oil tanker platform of choice for investors globally, as its chief executive Aristidis Alafouzos believes.

The Greek Ioannis A. Alafouzos-led company aims to ‘expand investor reach, enhance trading liquidity, and provide access to the U.S. market.’

Aristidis Alafouzos emphasizes the fact that the tanker company wishes to provide US investors the access to its fleet, commercial performance, and track record of returning value to its shareholders, as well as unlock enhanced trading liquidity for existing investors.

“The dual listing further enhances our access to the capital markets, solidifies our position within the industry, and offers potential opportunities for accretive transactions in the future,” he says.
