Insurance provider Skuld has appointed Helen Yiacoumis as head of freight, demurrage and defence (FD&D).
Prior to joining Skuld, Yiacoumis spent almost 18 years at The North of England P&I Association Limited, where she joined as a solicitor and progressed to director.
Yiacoumis is a qualified solicitor and has worked at Holman Fenwick Willan International between 1999 and 2001.
She said: “Skuld is well-recognised in the marine insurance market for its financial robustness, professionalism and high-quality client service. I very much look forward to working closely with the team to continue to provide excellent service and support to Skuld’s members and clients.”
Ståle Hansen, Skuld’s president and CEO, added: “Providing members with access to expert legal advice in shipping disputes is one of the key services in our global operations.
“Helen’s vast legal experience in handling FD&D claims will be an invaluable asset not only to our members in Greece but also to Skuld in general. We are very pleased to welcome Helen to our team.”
