V.Ships Germany team at Marine Money Ship Finance Forum in Hamburg

This month the V.Ships Germany senior team will attend the annual Marine Money Germany Ship Finance Forum in Hamburg, where they will meet with key members of the international ship finance community.

Over the course of the day, the team will join industry stakeholders from across the globe including shipowners, financiers, investors, and other ship managers, to discuss practical solutions to some of the main challenges and opportunities currently facing the maritime industry.

In attendance will be Franck Kayser, V.Ships Managing Director, Ship Management West, who will be leading a session entitled ‘What value does a ship manager bring to owners and investors’. Franck will be joined by Colin Rawlins, V.Ships Business Development Director, North Europe, and Gunnar Holm, V.Ships Corporate Development Officer.

V.Ships Germany’s newest member Nils Aden will also attend this year’s forum, following his appointment to the position of Managing Director earlier this year. Attendees will be able to catch Nils speaking on one of the expert panel discussions due to take place throughout the day, where he will be talking about building scale, fluidity and customer service.

This year’s forum promises to be an exciting one. The combination of Hamburg’s maritime culture and V.Group’s global track record of excellence and deep experience in the region set the stage for insightful discussion and networking, and we look forward to seeing you all there.
