Damir Keko comes from a family with salt water in their veins. From their homes on the islands outside Rijeka in Croatia, the families on both his mother and his father’s side have been working in a maritime environment; on fishing vessels and on commercial vessels.
Having to decide, Damir Keko thought: Why not go for maritime studies?
“And here I am. I have been sailing since 2004 on various vessels such as Trans Fjord, Trans Vik, Trans Emerald, Trans Adriatic and Trans Chemica, before I came here to Trans Exeter.” Damir Keko was promoted to Chief Officer in 2013 on Trans Adriatic.
