Ozgur Yilmaz, Crew Operations Manager

Ozgur Yilmaz  2

Ozgur Yilmaz is enjoying his second spell with us following his compulsory military service in Turkey.

After joining V.Ships Istanbul as a Crewing Officer in 2006 - before being promoted to Project Manager two years later - he re-joined V.Group in July 2012 as a Crew Operations Manager.

Now based in Glasgow, Scotland, he is responsible for the day-to-day ship management crewing operation, ensuring that crew procedures in both Ship Management Operations and Marine Services Operations are in line with guidelines and supportive of the company's objectives.

Working closely with the safety and quality department, seafarer training team and all crew managers, he identifies crew-related risks and ensures they are prioritised and managed effectively.

He said: "V.Group - including our primary brand V.Ships - is an integrated family which prides itself in operating in a sincere and creative way.

"Since the first day I joined, through the inspiration of this integrity, I have always enjoyed setting new goals and challenging myself to be the best I can be.

"Thanks to the make-up of this organisation, there are countless opportunities available to progress your career - both at sea and onshore - and grow as an individual."
