Dear Reader,

Welcome to the latest issue of our newsletter!

This newsletter is aimed at professionals working in the digital maritime, supply chain, satellite communications and trade sectors. To us this includes SaaS and DaaS Business Development, Sales, Product Management, and Market Research talent.

The hiring landscape across the digital shipping space continued to accelerate throughout 2020 and into 2021. The spotlight on reducing carbon emissions, improving vessel performance efficiency, automating powering and navigation, compliance and cybersecurity has created high demand for skilled personnel in sales, product management and data analysis functions. We have started to see “digital shipping hubs” emerging where clusters of start-ups, established software providers and large JVs are basing themselves. Hamburg, Oslo, London, Athens and Singapore being thriving market places. 

Cordell Beaumont is rapidly becoming the premier specialist Shipping Software Sales Recruitment agency and we are delighted to strengthen our team by announcing our recent appointment of Alice Shrubsole and Katie Hayes.

In addition to team and office expansion, Cordell Beaumont is also excited to be sponsoring The Digital Ship’s latest webinar series and is honored to have become an advertising partner of the Smart Maritime Network.

Going forward we can only see an increased demand for highly effective SasS and DaaS professionals within our industry sectors and Cordell Beaumont strives to become the sales recruiting partner of choice to a multitude of innovative global organisations.
