Message from the Chairman of the Board

Captain Georgios Stefanou

On behalf of Bright Maritime Corporation, our Officers and Staffs and my brother, Captain Dimitrios Stefanou, my warmest greetings and sincerest thanks to our Principals/Shipowners and the thousands of World-class Filipino Seafarers whom we serve. We also would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the government agencies - to mention a few; the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA), Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), etc., that collaborated with us in our quest for continuous employment and excellent service. We likewise thank our ISO certifying body, Bureau Veritas Certification for ensuring the Competitiveness of Filipino Seafarers and that our company's Quality Management System (QMS) is always complied and continuously improved. Above all to God Almighty who untiringly give blessings and protection!

Opportunity to open a manning company way back in 1994 was a privilege because we believe in the capability of Filipinos. Their diligence, dedication, intelligence, commitment and loyalty were the underlying factors that encourage us to deal business with them. I do not only mean our Filipino Seafarers but also our officers and staffs that operates our Piraeus and Manila Offices. People in charge of every aspect of the company have an inherent responsibility to perform the expected tasks of their jobs and at the same time help the company get to the top. I should admit that I am very lucky to have exemplary Officers and Staffs to be part of our manpower after more than a decade of operations.

We have developed this website as another technological innovation for easy access wherever you are around the globe. This is a way of welcoming everyone to be part of our happy Family. We are continuosly inviting Greek Principals/Shipowners and qualified Seafarers either Officers or Ratings to join our multi-awarded company by filling up the forms in our website and to email to us for your convenience.

As a way of ending this message, our seafarers are modern-day heroes who are envoys of goodwill and boosters of Filipino economic growth.
