International Yacht Collection recently appointed Jennifer Howarth its international crew placement director and Katya Jaimes a yacht charter agent.

“In today’s superyacht marketplace, the need for well-rounded services is critical,” IYC president Bob Saxon said in a statement. “Having Jennifer work on the re-establishment and new management practices of our crew placement service will aid our owners in effective yacht management. With her rich heritage, which includes hailing from Russia, Katya brings IYC a diverse cultural experience, which is critical for our Eastern European clients. Jennifer’s appointment and having Katya join the IYC team further enable IYC to develop new business and stay even closer to our customers in the effective management of their yachts.”

Howarth began her yachting career as a stewardess aboard such yachts as Oasis, Capri and Private Lives from 2004-07. Her land-based yachting career began in early 2008 at Fraser Yachts, Monaco, where she spent three years as a charter manager. She joined IYC in April 2011 as a charter manager.

Jaimes comes to IYC from Northrop & Johnson Yachts and Ships, and she also spent time at Ocean Blue Management. Her command of Russian culture and language is an invaluable asset to IYC as Eastern European clients and Russians become increasingly viable markets.
