Groupe Beneteau moved its regional offices for the Far East to Hong Kong, with the objective of expanding operations in the area.
The 11 staff members of the Groupe Beneteau Asia Pacific regional office will be in the same location. Paul Blanc is managing director and remains in charge of sales development for Jeanneau, Prestige, Glastron and Wellcraft. Vianney Guezenec is now Asia Pacific director for Beneteau, Lagoon and Four Winns. Monte Carlo Yachts and YNB will be managed from Europe.
“By gathering together all staff members, the objective is to gain more efficiency and continue strengthening our market presence in the Asia Pacific region, especially in Hong Kong’s international hub, a strategic location to oversee the business for the group,” Blanc said in a statement.
Groupe Beneteau has more than 60 dealers in the Asia Pacific region.
