Testimony of Captain Romeo STAVAR VERGEA, age: 38, graduated in 1993 from Naval Academy of Constantza
In 1998 when I joined CMA CGM as Officer of the Watch, the Master told me I would make my career in this company. At that time, frankly I was not sure : in 1998 CMA CGM was 13th container carrier worldwide, only starting his amazing growth.
I began by trading on board a class of vessels called PCRF, carrying especially bananas between French West Indies to North Europe. It was a delicate and a highly responsible task to take care of this extremely sensitive cargo. After a few years, I had the opportunity to be promoted as Chief Mate on M/V Fort Fleur d’Epée, and I had the honour to load the last transport of bananas for Europe on this proud ship, these old ladies being replaced with a brand new class of vessels.
This was the first main step in my career and since then I have faced continuously new challenges: trading on the US East Coast until 2006, when I was promoted as Master, and then on the Round the World service of CMA CGM.
Recently in 2007, after a successful mission in Head-Office to define a new set of training courses for deck officers, I have been proposed to take the position of CMA Ships Owners Representative for Romania, based in Constantza. What a new exciting challenge for me !

Testimony of Second Engineer Milic DORIJAN, age 32, graduated in 1993 from University of Maritime Studies of Rijeka
I started navigation in 1999, and signed my first contract with CMA CGM in 2004 as a Third Engineer. But shortly afterwards, I was offered a promotion opportunity to Second Engineer. I was pleased to see that my experience and efforts were rapidly recognized, and the Company made it possible for me to advance in my profession.
As a Second Engineer, I could spent a few contracts returning on board the same vessel, which was one of the best way to deepen my competencies. It was also a great experience with particularly good relations between the crewmembers.
As CMA CGM is building the largest container vessels of 13000 teus, I would find it to be a great challenge to serve soon on one of these vessels and be a part of this new era of CMA CGM Company … and why not as Chief Engineer !
