Dispatches No. 359

We at InterManager are absolutely shocked and saddened to hear the sad news that the Head of Marine at Hill Dickinson Maria Pittordis has passed away after a short illness. Maria had such a lively, bubbly personality, we know she will be greatly missed by her friends, colleagues and the industry.

Our Secretary General Kuba Szymanski paid tribute saying: “I have known Maria for many years and I have always been inspired by her both in a personal and professional capacity. She was very-well respected by the industry, a thought leader and an expert in the legal and travel sector. I am saddened by the news of her unexpected death and my thoughts are with her family.”
