MLV Marine are beyond excited & proud to let you know that our Managing Director, Mr. Stephen Calligeris has been awarded by YoungShip Cyprus & The Youth Board of Cyprus with the “YoungShip Innovation & Entrepreneurship Award for 2020”. This award was given to Stephen Calligeris in recognition of his significant contribution in the Cyprus maritime industry, as during the Covid-19 pandemic he has found MLV Marine with an aim to provide reliable marine technical services, installation, surveys, spare parts supply, and technical support.
Unfortunately, due to the extraordinary restrictive and protective measures of Covid-19 the last few months, the YoungShip Cyprus’ president Mr. Varnavas presented the award to our Managing Director only yesterday (30/3/2021) – “Stephen is an active and trusted young shipping professional in Cyprus who has built up a solid reputation and managed to setup his own startup company after many years of hard work and dedication in the maritime industry. This award is recognition of that and we hope Stephen continues to add value the Shipping community of Cyprus. YoungShip members may look up to him and Stephen has expressed his interest to mentor some of our YoungShip members if ever the need arises.”
Mr. Calligeris receiving the award goes on to say, “By receiving this award it makes me feel proud of my colleagues who have made MLV Marine what it is today within one year of operations, I am happy that my colleagues have trusted in my vision and supported me like family and the atmosphere within MLV is one of a positive and productive nature, with their help, we have made MLV into a trusted partner/supplier for many in such a short space of time and we collectively thank all of our trusted partners and clients who have put their trust in MLV. I am proud of what we have achieved as a team and especially during particularly tough times (COVID19) were a number of companies where fighting for survival, closing or downsizing, MLV was starting up and expanding. For the foreseeable future, MLV will continue to strive to become established as a recognised global name.
