In order to be able to provide the offered services our offices are manned by two Marine Engineers and Naval Architects (M.Sc.). Together they can offer the market extensive experience and competences in worldwide Marine Insurance technical surveys, Classification Society and Statutory matters, as well as cruise ship industry experience.
As a valuable support to our operation the company relies on an administrative assistance and office manager.
