“Rebecca and I have worked closely now for 10 years,” said Andrew Semprevivo, Seakeeper

We are grateful to have someone who works tirelessly and believes in Seakeeper’s mission like Rebecca does. She is beyond deserving and will continue to be an asset to Seakeeper as our CFO.”
In her new role, Smitha will focus on strategy and overall goals, allowing her teams to run more of the day-to-day operations. Currently, 57 employees report to Smitha.
