Chairman & Founder
Since its humble beginnings in 1988 Dieter has been at the “helm” of Viking Maritime (owner of the Maritime Skills Academy), steering the company from strength to strength, year on year. He is ultimately responsible for the overall Company – as they say ‘the buck stops with him’. In addition, Dieter provides a valuable contribution to the industry itself, with his involvement in many initiatives to improve maritime awareness in careers and training. He is ideally placed in this, sitting as he does, on various committees and steering groups such as the International Superyacht Society. He oversees a team of dedicated professionals who operate a company, which may not be the largest, but is most probably the best positioned in today’s Cruise and Superyacht industry.
