Arnaud brings a wealth of knowledge from different industries including tourism, food safety and shipping. His most recent role was Marketing Manager for V.Group, a major ship management and marine services company. 

“It’s great to have Arnaud on board as his experience will strengthen awareness in the commercial shipping sector and benefit all industry stakeholders from ship-to-shore.

Recently, there has been a greater focus on seafarer mental health and wellbeing and VIKAND is in a strong position to offer cost-effective quality solutions for ship operators. VIKAND’s purposeful and proactive healthcare approach is what attracted me to this role and I am ready to engage with our partners and key stakeholders in the industry.
