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.”
Allan and his team have a wealth of experience in the yacht management field and have always been efficient, diligent and honest in our dealings. I greatly value their support and service, and recommend them to any new yacht owner to help make the transition smooth and enjoyable.
Nopel Shipping Ltd. was totally satisfied with the services of Wilson Yacht Management, and found no cause for complaint over the nine years Nopel Shipping Ltd. was involved with them. Allan and his team have a wealth of experience in the yacht management field and they have always been efficient, diligent and honest in all our dealings.

I wish to say a personal thank you for the support you have given me and Vortex Marine over the last two years. Peter, my late husband was pleased he picked the right yacht management company, yours, to help with all matters.

It has been about a year since you have taken over the management of our client's 60 meter Feadship. We have previously had two other yacht management companies and even did the work ourselves for several months. I wanted to thank you for your excellent service and let you know how pleased we are in how seamlessly you have taken over and done just what we needed.
