Evolution Yachting has announced that the company has taken the next step in its global expansion programme, with the opening of new offices in four new countries: Albania, Croatia, Sardinia and Turkey. The openings will see the head count rise to 130 employees working across the organisation.
The recent acquisition of agencies has accelerated the company’s growth and resource requirements. The expansion builds on the organisation’s growing market presence in the top cruising European cruising destinations, with offices already strategically located across Spain, France, Italy, Monaco, Montenegro, Greece and Corfu. The company has quadrupled in size in the space of just two years and has an impressive portfolio of clients.
These four country openings are part of the long-term strategic plan in place since 2018. The agreements with the stakeholders were negotiated and executed over the last four months.
“The decision to expand to these four countries was a logical step in our business growth strategy and something that was always foreseen,” explained Stefano Tositti, CEO of Evolution Yachting. “The countries are all different in terms of maturity, but each hold enormous potential. Evolution Yachting is now the fastest-growing and most exciting agency within the yachting community and we plan to continue to maximise the momentum that we are creating within the market place.”
To support the business momentum, the new openings will remain consistent with the company’s passionate customer-centric culture.
Lara Toti, Area Manager for Sardinia and Corsica said: “I am extremely motivated to form part of Evolution Yachting, that seems to be going from strength to strength on a weekly basis. I have worked in the industry for 18 years, and was satisfied with the goals I achieved in the Sardinian market, but that was before Evolution Yachting came along, the best is yet to come without a doubt!”
“One of the most interesting aspects of joining Evolution Yachting is the fact that our clients will now be able to use us across the border. Many of our long-standing customers always ask for recommendations in other countries, and it makes imminent sense to create a unique client journey throughout their cruising season,” commented Muto Ar, Area Manager for Turkey.
Darko Domic, Area Manager for Croatia added: “I think that at the end of the day, we all have a common set of values and work ethic, and that is to provide the ultimate yachting experience to our clients. It will have a positive impact on how the clients interact with us and allow us to provide the best services possible.”
“Albania is one of the newest yachting destinations out there, and we will be able to capitalise on the know-how and global network advantages, coupled with our local professional experience to ensure that we are spot on in our offerings to the yachts visiting Albania. We really look forward to the challenge of developing Albania as a destination for the yachts,” added Bjordi Gogo, Area Manager for Albania.
