Dominion Marine employee Annie Nédellec meets French Navy
Annie Nédellec, senior marine administrator for Dominion Marine, is also the French Honorary Consul for the Isle of Man.
In this capacity, Annie welcomed the French Navy to the Isle of Man in August. French Navy training vessel Le Mutin (the Mischievous) was visiting the British Isles and docked in the Isle of Man, in Douglas. Annie arranged a series of visits for the crew including a visit to Government House and Douglas Town Hall. The ship's captain, Fabien Gregory and his crew, organised a cocktail party on board the yacht for a number of special guests, including the Lieutenant Governor, Adam Wood. Chris Allix, founder and director of Dominion Marine was very happy to attend.
Annie told us: " My role as French honorary consul generally involves assisting with paperwork for the French people who live here, so it is great to have something a bit different to deal with. The visit went really well and Captain Gregory and his crew thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We hope they will visit again next year."
In October, Annie will be attending an annual meeting in London along with other French Honorary Consuls from around the British Isles. The meeting is arranged so that the consuls have a chance to meet the French Ambassador and other Embassy staff. This year they will be discussing the French Presidential elections and proxy votes for French citizens living overseas.
