Three Join the Crew at Sarnia Yachts

Three join the crew at Sarnia
Sarnia Yachts, one of Europe’s largest yacht fiduciaries, has continued to expand its team with the appointment of three new members of staff.

The need for three additional Client Service Officers - Jason Chan, Julia O’Brien and Stephanie Ozanne - reflects Sarnia Yacht’s ongoing growth in an increasingly complex sector.

The trio will be responsible for a portfolio of clients who own luxury yachts. Their day-to-day roles include many aspects of yacht fiduciary and management services including day-to-day yacht and company administration, crew employment and payroll, expense management and sale or purchase transactions.

Mr Chan has over five years’ customer relations experience in banking and risk management with the HSBC Group.

Miss Ozanne brings nine years of fiduciary experience to the role. She holds a diploma in International Trust Management from STEP as well as qualifications in company administration and investment. She will be using her trust and company administrator experience to advise Sarnia’s private and corporate fiduciary clients.

Ms O’Brien has also joined Sarnia as a Client Services Office focusing on flag registration for Sarnia’s managed and non-managed yachts. Her experience in trust administration and tax means she is well placed to handle the complex and often quirky flag registration processes in a wide range of flag states including the UK, Isle of Man, Cayman, British Virgin Islands, Guernsey, Jersey and Malta.

Her day-to-day role will focus on meeting the high-pressure demands of timely flag registrations including new registrations and changes of port, ownership and status.

Sarnia Yachts provides a wide range of services for yacht owners including flag registration, company formation, yacht administration, VAT advice, crew employment and payroll and insurance.

‘As we continue to expand and develop new relationships with yacht owners, captains and other finance service providers it has been crucial to provide our clients with the best-possible service levels,’ says Alasdair Milroy, Director at Sarnia Yachts. ‘We have almost 30 people working for Sarnia Yachts in our Guernsey office alone and our expanded team means we can continue to stay at the forefront of our ever-growing and increasingly complex sector.’
