Robin Travis Scholar 2012 - Tabea Vogelsang
Tabea Vogelsang of Sunship Schiffahrtskontor KG of Emden has been selected as this year's Robin Travis Scholar after interviews of candidates in Hamburg last week. Tabea will start her three month stay in London in our office on 24th September and a programme is being prepared to enable her to gain as much knowledge and experience as she can.
Tabea Vogelsang of Sunship Schiffahrtskontor KG of Emden has been selected the Robin Travis Scholar for 2012. It is always difficult to choose a scholar with many excellent candidates. Congratulations to Tabea! We thank the other candidates for partaking in the interview process.
Tabea has been working as an assistant to the Managing Directors of Sunship Schiffahrtskontor KG for 1 year following a course of studies at the University of Applied Sciences in Bremen. She is clearly in the right business because within a short time, she seems to have taken on all different aspects of work for the Company. In addition to P&I insurance work, she is in charge of the Electronic Insurance for the whole fleet and deals with many issues in relation to the new buildings. She is also the key contact person for the Company's lawyers in Hamburg. Tabea has told us: "My personal interest in the insurance and transport branch is rooted in my great passion for vessels. I always wanted to do something that is connected to the maritime industry. I am sure that the Robin Travis Scholarship will help me to explore my fullest potential and to deepen my knowledge in a field which I have always found to be challenging and fascinating at the same time".
Tabea will commence the 3 month scholarship in London at the end of September and we look forward to ensuring that her programme is relevant and varied. She will be attending the Insight Course at the beginning of October.
