Guernsey-based Bachmann Group hired Yvonne Smyth to help manage its luxury yacht management sector.
“Many people will already know Eve, as she comes to us with an established background in the industry, and has developed a reputation for being very customer-focused,” yachting director Gary Le Cras said in a statement. “She has a proven track record in financial services, as well as familiarization with the various agencies across multi jurisdictions. All of this experience is required to successfully administer the total yacht management and corporate ownership demands of our clients.”
Smyth is 35, married with two children, and enjoys walking and keeping fit around the island of Guernsey where she has lived for most of her life.
“Coming to the Bachmann Group and joining the yachting division was a career move that really suited my skills and vocational background,” Smyth said. “From gaining my Diploma in offshore finance and administration at Guernsey Business School, through to working as a trust administrator responsible for a portfolio of high-net-worth clients and then spending eight years in client services for yacht management, I really feel that my knowledge base fits with Bachmann's wide range of services.”
