Pinmar appoints new vice president to implement its global strategy in the USA

Offered By Pinmar

Pinmar is pleased to announce the appointment of Alexander Swain as vice president, North America to lead the implementation of Pinmar’s global strategy in the USA market.

Swain brings more than 30 years of global business development and production management experience to this new position and is most recognised in the marine industry for his roles at MB92 Barcelona and more recently at Jotun’s global yachting division. During his 12 years in senior management at MB92, Swain was instrumental in delivering rapid, sustainable business growth while achieving customer quality expectations, and was part of the original team who formed the ICOMIA Superyacht Refit Group. His specialist role at Jotun focused on the development of their global yachting division, including rollout strategies in emerging markets such as the US and Asia.

Upon starting his new role with Pinmar, Swain commented, “It’s a pleasure to be part of the Pinmar team and I am excited and eager to start work aligning the USA business with our global growth strategy. Pinmar is a brand with a long and well-respected history in the superyacht service sector and I very much look forward to working with the senior management team as we develop our turnkey refit service offerings for our US clients.”

Swain will be responsible for Pinmar’s business operations in the USA, working alongside Peter Brown who will remain as managing director of Pinmar USA Inc, and will provide greater synergy between US and European operations. Phil Burgess will remain as general manager with a focus on sales and supporting business development. Swain will be sharing his time between Pinmar’s main USA bases at Rybovich West Palm Beach, Derecktor Fort Lauderdale and Savannah Yacht Centre as he looks to expand the company’s turnkey services with its existing partners and across the American superyacht market.

Commenting on the appointment Peter Brown, managing director of Pinmar USA Inc. said, “We are delighted to welcome such a respected industry figure as Alex to our USA team and I look forward to working with him. He is very well known in the superyacht community and comes with the proven skills and experience needed to lead the next phase of the company’s development in the USA.”
