AXSMarine is to boost its presence in the European, Middle Eastern and African (EMEA) shipping markets by opening a new representative office in London.
Leading global chartering software and database provider AXSMarine is to boost its presence in the European, Middle Eastern and African (EMEA) shipping markets by opening a new representative office in London on Monday, January 18th. The new office, to be based at 60 Cannon Street in the heart of the City of London, will be headed up by Hugo Rousse who has relocated from AXSMarine"s Paris office.
Hugo brings with him extensive knowledge of the EMEA chartering, broking and owning sectors and will lead a well resourced team that will support the needs of AXSMarine"s existing and potential client base in the regions.
AXSMarine is the industry leader in easy-to-use interactive databases and online knowledge tools for charterers, owners and operators in the dry bulk, wet bulk, offshore, and liner shipping sectors.
The London office will manage all of AXSMarine"s commercial activities for the EMEA markets. It will enable AXSMarine to better serve its large London and UK client base and provide it with the necessary focus to continue to grow its business in 2010 and beyond. Up to 50% of AXSMarine"s existing shipping clients are based in London and European centres so they will greatly benefit from the support the new London office will provide.
Welcoming the opening of the Cannon Street office, Stephen Fletcher, AXSMarine Commercial Director, said: ?Our London office will provide a vital role in providing sales and post sales support to our existing as well as potential client base. London is a very important shipping centre, for example the majority of the world"s broking houses are either headquartered here or have a presence here. Our London team will add that crucial hands-on element our clients need, whether it is on-site training, contract discussions or just keeping them abreast of latest developments or new products we may be launching.?
