Martina Meinders built up a successful international career in shipping for the past two decades. Starting from Hamburg in the 1990’s, as Chartering Assistant, Martina moved to Cyprus in 1993 and filled in the position of the General Manager in various Shipping companies. As of 2007 Martina is the Managing Director of Marin Shipmanagement Ltd. in Limassol, a member of the NSC-Group of Companies in Germany.
In 2015 Martina took her experience a step further by accepting a new type of challenge. She decided to gather her acquired knowledge and use her international awareness to develop her own research and bring in innovative ideas into the sector, for which she was awarded the prestigious EMBA (Executive MBA in Shipping and Logistics) from the Copenhagen Business School in Denmark in 2015.
Constantly connected with the communities where her business activities are developed (Cyprus, Manila, China, Myanmar), Martina actively engages with various local associations and was a founding member of WISTA Cyprus in 2011. She is member of the Cyprus Committee of DNV-GL, Cyprus Shipping Chamber (CSC) and Cyprus Marine Environment Protection Agency (CYMEPA).
Since October 2016, Martina is engaged in the Cyprus Germany Business Association (CGBA) as a member of the Board.
