Leading online valuation and data provider, VesselsValue, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Alexander Adamou to the Board of Directors.
As an experienced mathematician and modeller in the Shipping industry, Alex will oversee the scientific research that underpins the company’s products in his new role as Chief Scientist. Alex first joined VesselsValue in 2010, when he led the development of the company’s first asset valuation model.
With a first-class degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Imperial College London, Alex will use his expertise to set the strategic direction for VesselValue’s modelling activities. Supported by a growing team of talented data scientists, mathematicians, and physicists, Alex will drive forward VesselsValue’s research and development to meet clients’ needs.
Commenting on his new role, Alex said: “I am excited to take up a full-time scientific position at VesselsValue. The company has data assets and software development capabilities unrivalled in the Maritime and Aviation industries. The potential to use statistical methods to extract business intelligence from data and deliver it quickly, reliably, and usefully to clients, is enormous.
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.”
VesselsValue is thrilled to have Alex joining the Board of Directors, as the company continues to enhance its modelling capacity and expand its offering.
