Meet the team:
“Making renewables happen”: Anyone who knows Penny Jeffcoate will confirm that she is committed to this goal. And she does that in a variety of ways: The maritime engineer completed her doctorate after graduating and has held various positions in the renewable energy industry. Today, the 37-year-old is not only a technical project manager for SCHOTTEL Marine Technologies, but also works as a visiting lecturer at the University of Southampton and as an associate for the EMEC: European Marine Energy Centre. In her spare time, she also volunteers as Boat Crew at the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).
As part of her role at SCHOTTEL Marine Technologies, she deals with a variety of different topics, including ensuring that all relevant information is conveyed in a concise and understandable manner. Penny acts as a key interface between all stakeholders – her technical background makes it easy for her to understand who needs what type of information.
Her big goals for the future? See marine renewables happen and be part of it with SCHOTTEL Marine Technologies. What else drives the former world champion in sailing? “I am keen to support and encourage young women to join in the maritime industry. It should not be an exception for women to be in leadership positions in these industries. We should all work together to become as diverse as possible in companies. I am convinced that everyone will benefit from it!”
Happy to have you at SCHOTTEL Marine Technologies, Penny!
