Yvonne Mason is a Gorleston-born girl with over 20 years experience in the marine industry, as the founder and former Chairman of a very successful group of marine companies. She sold the group in 2005 and left in 2007 to establish The Mason Trust which helps the young people of Norfolk and Suffolk raise their aspirations and achieve their potential.
The Trust provides grant funding to youth organisations and individual young people whose aims/aspirations meet the Trusts objectives. It also works with education to forge closer links with industry to help young people recognise the opportunities available to them.
In addition to her charitable activities with The Mason Trust, Yvonne has established a number of new businesses within the marine/energy sectors, and has a particular interest in developing opportunities in the field of renewable energy. Her latest ventures, Future Marine Services Ltd and Safe STS Ltd provide marine consultancy and support services across the energy sector.
