Peter Mahony, Benetti Asia’s newly appointed general manager, has been added to the speaker lineup at ASMEX, the Australian Superyacht & Marine Export Conference.

ASMEX 2018 runs from May 21-23 at Sanctuary Cove in Queensland.

During the event, Mahony will discuss the value of alliances in a global market, a particularly relevant topic for many international companies that have recently developed alliances with key Australian companies in the commercial defence sector.

AIMEX, the Australian International Marine Export Group, says it is very conscious of alliances currently being formed in the superyacht and manufacturing sectors.

“Whether it be in the export, superyacht or commercial sector the development of alliances to win work, add skills and expertise or simply expand the scope of a business is becoming an important consideration for any business in Australia or globally,” says AIMEX president Richard Chapman.

As Benetti Asia’s new general manager, Mahony is directly responsible for managing sales throughout the region. He has more than 30 years’ experience in sales and marketing throughout Europe and in Asia, including roles at some of the world’s largest superyacht builders.
