New recruits bring wealth of experience to our dedicated support team

WYM Group is delighted to have expanded our team following a sustained period of growth and an increasing number of vessels in our managed fleet.

Assistant ISM Manager Steven Green is the latest recruit to join our UK headquarters, providing us with even more experience of managing passenger and cargo vessels.

Having previously enjoyed a 16-year service career with P&O Ferries in Dover, Steve has gained a wealth of knowledge from his time as a Safety Management System Officer and Fleet Administrator.

Primarily, he will be responsible for assisting ISM Manager Bob Lough. Steve will also be on hand to provide compliance advice to vessel owners, captains and potential clients.

To further strengthen our financial department, we have acquired the experience of accountants Jon Birjoo and Katie Watson. Jon has over 20 years’ experience working in finance and currently manages the accounts for MV St Helena. Katie has over five years’ accounting experience for a large manufacturing company. She manages the accounts for multiple yachts.

Anna Herbert has been recruited as our new Crew Manager and she will work in close collaboration with Jacquelin Nel, who has joined us to operate as Assistant Crew Manager. Anna comes with many years’ experience of working in the private medical sector. She has transferred these skills seamlessly to manage the crewing department. Jacquie comes from a background in industry and from owning her own freight business.

Reflecting on the arrival of the five new recruits, WYM Group Managing Director Allan Wilson said: “We know how important it is to have a strong and experienced team to provide dedicated support at all times.

“Each one of these individuals brings a wealth of different strengths and expertise – and there’s no doubt they’ll be an asset to our business and clients.

“As yacht and ship management specialists, it’s our duty to ensure vessels are managed properly so they can safely and easily navigate waters all around the world.”
