Our previous Secretary General, Michela Sasdelli, has stepped down from YoungShip International to focus on her career path at Wilhelmsen Ship Management.
We take this opportunity to thank her for all the hard work she has put in over the last one and a half years. Michela has been involved in the successful edition of ShipCon 2018 in Cyprus and she handled magnificently the Young Entrepreneur Award process towards Nor-Shipping 2019.
“I am so thankful I had the opportunity to promote the young professionals in many occasions during my time in YoungShip. The aim has been to strengthen the organization and tight up the relation between the international departments. I am happy to leave the role to Eleanor and I am sure she will take the organization one step further!
I learned a lot, I grew professionally and it is now time for me to focus 100% on the coordination for my first drydock the upcoming November and to continue my growth in the Ship Management world.”
Starting from September we have a new Secretary General, Eleanor Scudder. Eleanor is an experienced English qualified lawyer who has previously worked in both London and Piraeus for shipowners and charterers. Eleanor is currently working as an in-house lawyer for Skuld in Oslo and has extensive litigation experience across many maritime industry issues.
With her international experience and positive outlook we believe she will do a great job in taking YoungShip International forward. We wish her the best of luck and success in running our organisation.
“I am very excited to throw myself into and be part of YoungShip International. There are many events in the next twelve months such as ShipCon 2019 in October which I hope will attract a great networking platform for young persons across all spectrums of the shipping industry. YoungShip's reputation in Norway and globally is very impressive and I feel honoured to be appointed to such a role.
Thanks to Michela for her excellent strategic vision of YoungShip International’s development over the last couple of years and the great support she has provided me in the handover process.”
Eleanor Scudder – Secretary General at YoungShip International.
