Celebrating Marvin's Bieleks Appointment as Press & Media Secretary for YoungShip Cyprus

At Mintra, we're so much more than just a team—we're a force driving innovation and excellence in maritime training across Europe. With our staff spread far and wide, managing the crucial training needs of a 2.5 million-strong seafaring workforce, we embody a spirit of constant movement and progress.

What sets our team apart is their passion for the maritime industry, extending far beyond the confines of our office walls. Many of us have the sea in our blood, with ties to seafaring families, coastal living, or personal experiences as mariners. This passion fuels our drive to learn, connect, and strive for a better future for our industry. As a business, we are proud of this dedication and the many institutes and maritime bodies that our team are members of. After all, as renowned naval officer Grace Hopper once said:

"A ship in port is safe, but that's not what ships are built for."

Progress is made outside of the harbour walls.

Marvin Bielek's election as YoungShip, Cyprus' Press and Media Secretary underscores his dedication to maritime growth and networking excellence. Congratulations on this achievement! "
