Today TADEK celebrates International Women’s Day. We are fortunate to have inspirational female leaders working in different divisions across our team including Senior Naval Architect Dr Daniela Benites, Project Support Manager Claire Berghorst and Marketing & Business Support Manager Liz Jackson

A key technical team member, Dr Daniela Benites brings academic depth and rigour to our organisation, helping set Tadek apart as an expert in complex ocean engineering. Upon receiving her degree in Naval Architecture in her native country, Ecuador, she started working in the shipyard industry. To further her studies, she achieved an MSc. in Offshore Engineering at Newcastle University and a PhD. in Computational Wave-Structure Interaction at UCL. She has worked on various projects across the marine sector, including offshore consultancy and academia.

Meanwhile, Claire holds a Computer Science BSc degree from the University of South Africa and has extensive experience working in the IT industry at large corporations. She started her career as a developer and quickly progressed to a business analyst, project manager, development manager and finally programme manager in the medical insurance industry. Not one to sit still, Claire completed yoga teacher training in 2008 and was awarded a senior yoga teacher qualification in 2018. Claire teaches both locally and internationally, which includes getting the Tadek team moving with weekly yoga classes.

Liz brings a wealth of experience in office management, business support and personal assistance to Tadek. She has extensive knowledge of business processes, and knows how to ‘oil the cogs’ to drive the business forward. Liz focuses on Tadek’s marketing, ISO 9001 quality management system, day-to-day business operations and HR.

Tadek provides dynamic consultancy and project delivery resources for marine, offshore and subsea projects in renewables and oil & gas. This includes SURF & marine analysis, FOW (Floating Offshore Wind) & floating systems design, structural design, naval architecture, project engineering and project management support. Established in 2010, we’ve built a portfolio of 200-plus projects worldwide, with a rapidly expanding team of 22.
