Young Corporation Award 2021 Winner announced

ShipCon hosts YoungShip Rotterdam and YoungShip International are proud to announce the winner of Young Corporation Award 2021 is Friday & Co. Shipbrokers.

Friday & Co. have a young team with a modern philosophy. Director, Rod Schlick has given multiple young enthusiasts a chance to join a company, even if they did not have a maritime background. YoungShip saw this as unique in an industry which traditionally recruits from mainstream industry sectors with previous experience usually being a barrier to entry into the market. This beneficial attitude itself opens up the pool of promising young talent which we at YoungShip consider should be reflective of the modern maritime and shipping industry as whole.

For the panel this summarises what this Young Corporation Award is about, involving young talent and harbouring new ideas. 

Friday & Co. has clearly nurtured its young talent to be successful and have great plans to do so on a larger scale in the future. Friday & Co. have recently launched a training program call the Expedition Program to find and recruit several new trainee brokers. It is this investment in time, not just the financial which YoungShip values. Transfer of knowledge is key to our founding principles and aligns with Friday & Co’s outlook and ethos.

Thanks goes to the panel and nomination by Linda Treuman at Rotterdam Maritime Services Community.
