2017 marked a few important endevours for IPANDI; the club established its Athens representative office and set it as gateway into the European markets of shipping insurance, it also earned another nomination at the Maritime Standard awards for Insurer of The Year, and Amir Mosadeghi, CEO of the club, became a member of the DNV GL Middle East Committe. However, one of the most important earnings for the club and especially for Amir Mosadeghi, was him winning The Maritime Standard Young Person in Shipping award, which was presented to him by Dr. Khaled Al Mazrouei, CEO, Abu Dhabi Ship Building.

Amir, at his 40th, was pictured as a leading figure within the region’s maritime field. This was in fact in light of his experience and expertise in the field for just under 20 years. He has been the CEO of IPANDI for 3 years now and has led the club into the international markets further than ever before.
