MONACO, July 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The world's leading full-service yachting company, Fraser Yachts, is pleased to announce the addition of two new sales brokers to its team for luxury yacht sales
. Craig Erickson has joined the Fort Lauderdale office while Alex Krykanyuk recently joined the Monaco office; both brokers have considerable experience in the yachting industry.
Craig initially started his career as a professional NFL footballer, playing for the Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears among other teams during the 1990s. In 2001 he moved into yacht brokerage
and joined Allied Richard Bertram Marine Group where he worked until joining Camper & Nicholsons four years ago. Craig has made numerous brokerage and new build superyacht sales
throughout his career and across a range of sizes.
Upon joining the company last week Craig commented, "Fraser Yachts is a great platform for my clients. At the end of the day, my job is to connect them to the industry and working for such a well-known company with an outstanding track record will allow me to do just that."
Alex, originally from the Ukraine, started his career in yachting in the 1990s and has worked as a yacht consultant, project manager and broker for Russian clients around the world for many years. He has represented clients in projects ranging from 24m to 105m for design, refit and new builds of both power and sailing yachts. Alex's latest project is the project management of a new 47m Feadship designed by Dubois & Redman Whitely Dixon, due for delivery in Spring 2015.
Alex speaks fluent Ukrainian, Russian, English and Spanish and explained, "Fraser Yachts has been well-known as the world's leading yacht brokerage for many years and so it has long been a dream of mine to work for a company with such a pedigree. I'm very much looking forward to working with the brokers around the world to reach the Russian market."
Fabio Ermetto, Chairman of Fraser Yachts stated, "Following on from the new partnerships we have set up around the world at the start of the year we also wanted to grow the sales teams in our existing offices. Our brokers have been performing incredibly well over the last few years with more yachts sold than any of our competitors for three years in a row, and we are on track to do the same this year. I am confident that Alex and Craig will be valuable additions to the team."
