One Year Since Our Merger Party: Celebrating Unity, Values, and Achievements

One year after our internal Greece merger party, we celebrate achievements and a stronger, more united IFCHOR GALBRAITHS driven by a shared vision. Enjoy the video accompanying this article to see our shared values and team spirit.

As we mark the first anniversary of our memorable internal Merger Party in Greece, we reflect on our journey and achievements. The video from our Merger Party perfectly captures who we are – a team united by common values, strengthened by our combined legacies, and driven by a shared vision for the future.

A Foundation Built on Shared Values & Shared Vision

In mid-June 2023, we gathered in Greece to celebrate the merger of IFCHOR and Galbraiths. This event symbolized our shared values and common vision, captured in the mottos “Two legacies, One vision” and “One Team, One Mission.” The gathering emphasized the importance of collaboration and mutual respect – core principles that continue to guide our daily activities.

Leveraging the Power of Two Legacies

The merger united the strengths of IFCHOR’s and Galbraith’s established legacies. Throughout this past year, we have leveraged this combined expertise to achieve significant progress. Our party in Greece celebrated this synergy, resulting in enhanced service offerings, expanded market reach, and strengthened client relationships.

Celebrating Achievements Over the Past Year

Reflecting on our journey, we take pride in the milestones we have achieved together. Our focus on equipping brokers with expertise in navigating new regulations, particularly in decarbonization, has been a key area of progress. This effort is mirrored by the significant growth of our Maritime Carbon Solutions platform (MCS), which has attracted new clients and reinforced its market position.

Furthermore, the acquisition of UNO Offshore has strengthened our capabilities, creating a robust team specializing in Offshore and Renewables. The opening of our Vancouver office has marked another significant step in our international expansion. These developments are complemented by positive client feedback, increased activity and revenue in our dry, tanker, and S&P divisions, and a heightened demand for our research services.

Creating One Unified Vision

Our merger wasn’t just about bringing two companies together; it was about creating one unified vision for the future. The laughter, team spirit, and shared excitement from our Merger Party have carried through to our everyday operations. We have seen significant growth in our business metrics and company culture.

We are committed to fostering a positive and productive work environment that prioritizes professional values like respect, communication, and teamwork. As part of this commitment, we are launching the IG Talent Program (IGTP) during 2024. This initiative aims to attract and onboard young graduates, bringing fresh perspectives and talent into our organization.

We are proud of the progress we have made over the past year and look forward to building on this success and continuing to deliver exceptional service to our clients.
