DeltaMeco - European Team

Paul Sherwood
Paul Sherwood is an ambitious professional who knew from a very early age that he wanted to embark on a career in the shipping industry.  With a thirst for knowledge and experience, after completing his college education, he began the journey that would lead to his position of Director of DeltaMeco Crewing Services today.

Over the past 15 years, he has held a number of positions within the company including Personnel Administrator, Personnel Officer and Operations Manager which have provided a solid foundation at a grounds-root level.  During the latter years, he was mentored by his father and was able to expand his knowledge into wider issues affecting the shipping industry including union, and salary negotiations, cadet training and legislation.

Paul’s current role brings him into contact with a wide variety of cultures and personalities.  This has undoubtedly strengthened both his communication and negotiation skills; valuable tools in any business but particularly in one based on traditional values.

Looking to the future, Paul is keen to build on his existing portfolio of clients and ensure that DeltaMeco Crewing Services continues to prosper.
