Papageorgiou replied, “I am very excited to join the team at Aegean and look forward to helping management deliver on the company’s great potential.”
According to Aegean, Papageorgiou most recently served as Senior Advisor at New York-listed Seacor Holdings where he worked with the executive management team in executing corporate opportunities.
While at Seacor, Pavlos held a number of management roles including Chief Financial Officer of Seacor Marine Holdings LLC (SMH), where he helped advise management on strategy and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activities including deal assessment, structuring and analysis, as well as capital markets.
Prior to his positions at Seacor, Papageorgiou held various roles of increasing seniority at Morgan Stanley having served as Head of Principal M&A Execution, responsible for major strategic initiatives including deal sourcing, and executing acquisitions.
More recently, Papageorgiou served as Assistant Treasurer and Global Head of Liquidity Planning and Coverage at Morgan Stanley where he led the firm’s Global Liquidity Risk Management Framework, including Contingency Funding Plan (CFP), governance, escalation and mitigating actions.
He began his career in the Investment Banking department at Merrill Lynch where he specialised in Telecommunications M&A.
