WISTA - Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association Norway - has opened its doors to its first ever male member, Nor-Shipping Director, Per Martin Tanggaard.
The organisation, which supports and promotes women in maritime business management positions, has enjoyed a long-standing partnership with Nor-Shipping and saw Tanggaard as the ideal person to introduce the next chapter in its development.
Bjørg Ekonrud, President, WISTA Norway said, “Per Martin is an enthusiastic, open minded and forward-thinking member of the maritime community. As such he is a perfect ambassador for WISTA and our mission of promoting women within the industry.”
WISTA Norway decided to allow male membership at its 2017 AGM.
