Natallia Dean

Managing Director Pella Sietas


WISTA Germany
Personality of the Year





Mrs. Natallia Dean, Managing Director of the Pella Sietas

shipyard in Hamburg, is also a member of WISTA Germany

since 2016. 



Natallia Dean was suggested to be honored after we called for

proposals at several Companies and Shipping Associations.

The WISTA Germany Committee, led by Dr. Carolin

Schilling-Schulz and Jessica Wegener made their decision

after having received numerous suggestions. "As director

of Pella Sietas she took over a very challenging task at very

tough times," laudator Dr. Reinhard Lüken, MD of VSM

German Shipbuilding and Ocean Industries Association said.

"She is encouraging and motivation and always optimistic."
