As Managing Director of Sea Ranger Service, she aims to train 20.000 young people towards a maritime career by 2040 while at the same time restore 1 million hectares of ocean biodiversity. In addition she is President of WISTA the Netherlands, the Women in Shipping and Transport Association, which represents over 3,800 women at management level in the maritime industry worldwide.
Christel believes that by working together, beyond the divides of race, gender, age, religion and identity, we can all play a frontline role in ocean protection and regeneration. Her personal career is a perfect example of what can be accomplished and she hopes her story inspires others to build a career in the maritime industry too.
