Charles Hazet appointed business development manager for Asia

UK-based yacht transporter Peters & May has appointed Charles Hazet to the role of business development manager for Asia. Hazet brings extensive knowledge and experience from across the yacht industry, with an excellent network of contacts throughout South-East Asia. He will be based in Singapore, at the centre of business expansion throughout the region.

Hazet’s appointment marks the first stage of a restructuring and building phase for Peters & May’s team in Asia. Further appointments will be announced in the near future, the company says.

“As arguably the key yachting hub within Asia, having Charles based in Singapore will only add to P&M’s strength within the region, complementing the existing offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Thailand,” says Richard Skinner, regional manager for Peters & May Asia. “With various strategic locations through Asia, we are able to support our customers with a truly personal service.”

After 45 years as a successful world leader in bespoke logistics, Peters & May claims to be growing at an exponential rate, demonstrated in the acquisition of Worldwide Yacht Transport and Transport Partners at the beginning of this year.

Hazet is making his Cannes Yachting Festival debut this week. Visitors are encouraged to drop by the Peters & May stand (Jetee 154) to chat to the team about any logistics requirements.
