International shipping publication Lloyd’s List has recognised Tototheo Maritime co-CEO Despina Panayiotou Theodosiou as one of the Top 100 people in the global shipping industry, as well as one of the Top 5 “next generation” Executives.

The annual Lloyd’s List series of Top 100 has rapidly become the industry’s litmus test for the state of the industry. The Top 5 “next generation” is seen as the definitive list of young leaders who are beginning to take a significant position in the industry.

As the recently appointed president of WISTA International Ms Panayiotou Theodosiou has set out to make a difference, focusing on technology and the advancement of women in the industry. We agree with Lloyd’s List that she is a powerhouse, a rising star, and a problem solver with a sharp mind.

Ms Panayiotou Theodosiou has already begun working hard in her role as president of WISTA International, helping to build the organisation to be a body that can be a relevant voice in the new shipping industry.

“I am honoured that Lloyd’s List has recognised me as one of their top 100 industry leaders,” says Ms Panayiotou Theodosiou. “Our industry is in a period of significant change and I am glad to be able to play my part in steering a course through this change.  Technology and tradition are being rebalanced, and the role of women in the industry has become a major talking point. This is an exciting and momentous time in our industry and I am humbled and grateful to be able to be a part of it”

Tototheo Maritime is a forward-thinking dynamic company. We have respect for tradition, but a desire to work with our partners and friends in applying new technologies and ways of working in the industry.
