With nearly a decade of experience in the shipping industry, prior to DA-Desk, Zhurbenko served as Operations Manager at Wilhelmsen Maritime Services. While there, she worked collaboratively to ensure safe and efficient practices within the industry. She began her career as Deputy Director of International Affairs at Projection Institute GIPROGRAD.

At Odessa National Maritime University she was on the Faculty of Transport Technologies and Systems Sea Transport Operations & Management. This year she will earn her MBA in Shipping and Logistics from Middlesex University (Lloyd’s maritime academy).

In addition to her responsibilities with the Agency Relations Management department, Zhurbenko will sit on the DA-Desk Compliance Committee, the independent internal body that establishes compliance policy for DA-Desk.
