TheYachtMarket.com has appointed a director of business development to capitalise on its headline sponsorship of TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show.
Sue Milne has more than 30 years’ experience in the marine industry, driving sales revenue in both magazine and online publishing. In recent years she was part of the senior management team at YachtWorld and boats.com as general manager and latterly as GM to European Business Partners.
Milne will support Tessa Reid who has now been promoted to director of sales after joining TheYachtMarket.com at the beginning of 2017 from Newsquest Media Group.
TheYachtMarket.com has 50,000 boats for sale online, ranging from RIBs and powerboats to yachts and superyachts. It also features a wealth of other useful resources to help people buy and equip their boats.
Richard Roberts founder and CEO said: “Sponsoring TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show has delivered a step change for our business and it is vitally important that we maximise the opportunity. Sue brings a wealth of experience to the business which will enable us to build on our strong foundations, so we achieve our goals and aspirations in 2018 and the future growth in global markets.”
Sue Milne, who will be based at the company’s Southampton headquarters, said: “I am thrilled to be joining such an ambitious company. Sponsoring the Southampton Boat Show has underlined their intentions and I am looking forward to playing my part in consolidating the TheYachtMarket.com as a global leader.”
