Jorge Samarin

I was born on June 05 1963, Temperley, Buenos Aires, Argentina. I studied at the Manuel Belgrano school in Temperley. I started in the maritime services activity in 1978, with just 15 years, doing port and cadetería tasks; from there I gained experience in the sector, worked in different maritime agencies and I made various functions before starting with my own company.
