ISS hands out lifetime achievement honor

International Yacht Collection president Bob Saxon was awarded the International Superyacht Society's Lifetime Achievement Award during its recently held annual Awards Gala for Design and Leadership.

The awardrecognizes the body of work and accomplishments of superyacht industry leaders who, by their actions, set standards of ethics, professionalism and business models the rest of the industry adopts for the betterment of the marketplace.

“Bob Saxon has served the global yachting industry long and well,” colleague and fellow ISS board member Michael Moore said in a statement. “And in every area of service, whether yacht management, as head of the [Florida Yacht Brokers Association], or his current position as CEO of a large brokerage, management and charter business, he has improved the industry with vision and leadership.”

Saxon, inaugural president of the ISS from 1990-1993, redoubled his commitment and efforts on behalf of the industry by stepping back into the ISS presidency for the last two years. His goal has been to lead the society into its 20th year and beyond and to provide vision for its growing international presence.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented from time to time at the discretion of the board of directors.
