Telemar Yachting, an Italian-based superyacht electronics company, is opening a new North American office in Fort Lauderdale.
"This permanent base in the yachting capital of the Americas rounds out our coverage of Asia, the Mediterranean and the Americas," general manager Andy Gifford said in a statement.
The new Telemar Yachting office will be managed by Mark Theissen, Telemar's business development manager.
"As a company we are very pleased to have Mark on board," said Gifford. "I've known him personally for several years and, with his international background, I know he'll make a great addition to our team."
The new Fort Lauderdale Telemar Yachting office opens June 1.
It is the third CG Telemar Group office in the U.S., but the first targeted specifically at the superyacht industry.
