Peggy Høegh Grays

Founded in 2013 with the purpose to increase customized knowledge in the maritime
industry, as well as make it more accessible.

Mission​

Graysown offers highly experienced specialized training, creating sustainable value for
our business partners.

Vision​

Empower people and increase diversity, inclusion and health through specialized and
customized knowledge training for shore side employees in maritime companies.

Peggy Høegh Grays is the founder and CEO of GraysOwn LLC, a maritime training
and consulting firm based in Houston Texas. GraysOwn specializes in training
programs for shore side employees in the maritime industry from a practical
perspective. Training is a passion for which Peggy won the price for best thesis, while
graduating her MBA in Shipping and Logistics from Copenhagen Business School
(CBS) in 2019. She is dedicated to growing especially entry level employees in the
maritime industry, in order for them to gain thorough knowledge of the basic terms
early in their career, as well as, providing tips and tricks on optimizing vessel operations.
Research shows, when employees are better equipped through training, they become
more confident and content in their jobs and attrition improves. By outsourcing training
of entry level employees, mid-management is afforded valuable time to accomplish
everyday tasks. Furthermore, by offering specialized training when new employees
have just started a job, they are able to work more independently one to two months
prior, than in-house training permits; since not many mentors can devote their full time
to training. GraysOwn’s seminars, like the Operations Boot Camp for example, kick
starts employees to a successful carrier in the maritime industry.
