Ambassador Pyatt’s Statement on the Passing of Andreas Potamianos

Monday, August 2, 2021 

On behalf of the U.S. Mission in Greece, I offer my sincere condolences on the death of Andreas Potamianos.  We know how deeply he will be missed, particularly by those in the shipping industry, where he strengthened ties between the U.S. and Greece over the course of his life.

The U.S. Mission community fondly remembers our close work with Andreas throughout his many years of cooperation with us, including collaboration through the Propeller Club, Port of Piraeus, and on the Olympic and Special Olympic Games.

I am joined by many at the U.S. Mission who express their sorrow.  We hope the memories of the incredible life he lived will bring pride and comfort to his family and friends in Greece and around the world.
