I personally selected our advisors, a team of extremely experienced individuals who are as passionate about our vision to make the world a safer place”, said Carolyn Pearson, CEO and Founder.

Maiden Voyage Chairman, Tony Rice added “I’m delighted that we’ve secured the support of such talented experts to help us to expand the foothold Maiden Voyage has in the market and am looking forward to the next chapter as we meet the needs of this growing sector”.
