Greece-born Ms Catsiba, who holds a Master of Law from University College London, began her career in shipping 22 years ago as a lecturer in Maritime Law, Transport Law and International Trade Law at the Southampton Institute of Maritime Studies, England. Thereafter, she has held a number of senior positions as claims and insurance manager as well as legal and general counsel for several leading shipping companies in Greece, Switzerland and the Philippines. In 2008, she founded an international consultancy company, and in 2010 established her own shipping company.
Ms Catsiba will represent LISCR in the UAE and Middle East region, where the Liberian Registry continues to expand its representation and sphere of interest.
She said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to represent the world’s fastest growing and most innovative Registry in one of the most exciting areas for genuine expansion in the shipping and corporate sectors.”
Hilary Spilkin, Managing Director of the Liberian Corporate Registry, said: “We are delighted to have recruited an individual of Fay’s professional experience. The UAE and Middle East is an area of strategic importance to the Registry, and Fay’s appointment is a further demonstration of our commitment to provide our clients in the region with the highest possible level of service and immediate access to the quality of expert advice they demand.
