Young Corporation Award 2023

The Young Corporation Award was established in 2012 with the aim of recognizing and celebrating exemplary employers who demonstrate a commitment to nurturing and developing young talent. This initiative not only acknowledges the efforts made by these companies but also serves as an inspiration for other organizations to enhance their focus on the growth and development of young individuals.

The Young Corporation Award is presented annually during ShipCon. This year, the award was given to Van Ameyde Krogius for their commitment to nurturing young talent.

Providing opportunities to the youth is evident through the substantial number of young professionals they have brought on board, fortified in the workforce and by that contributing to the development of the next generation of industry leaders.

What sets them apart is their proactive approach to also provide the younger workforce with the opportunity the represent the company. These individuals, despite their age, consistently serve as ambassadors for Van Ameyde Marine in general, and in this case for Van Ameyde Krogius more specifically in various capacities. Whether it is participating in industry events, engaging with clients, or showcasing their expertise.

Our biggest congratulations to Van Ameyde Krogius!
