On Wednesday April 20th, the 2016 MYBA Annual General Assembly (AGM) was held in the South of France. Apart from providing the opportunity for MYBA Members to review the year that passed and to discuss plans for the future, this year's General Assembly was also the stage for the elections that determine the composition of the Board.
The MYBA Board is elected by the entire professional Membership, serves a two year term and plays a crucial role in safeguarding the superyacht industry's interests. Each Board Member heads one of the MYBA Committees & Panels and gives generously of their time and effort, for the good of all.
The newly elected Board is, once again, a promising combination of experience, expertise, passion and unwavering commitment to the Association's objectives. Each Board Member brings something different to the table and it is this blend that promises a very exciting and productive future. They do, however, have several common traits.
They all know how to lead and influence.
They know how to argue their point without making it personal.
They invite a healthy level of candour.
They are life-long learners.
MYBA is very proud to present the Members of the Board:
Fiona Maureso (Sales and Tax&Law), Niall Robinson (Yacht Management), Adelheid Chirco (Charter), Gaye Joyeau-Bourgeois (Membership), James Graham-Cloete (Charter Shows), Marta Iglesias (IT), Tove Johnson (Communications), John Wyborn (Competency, Education & Training, Maura Zane (Social).
The officers of the Board were confirmed as: President - Fiona Maureso,
Vice President – Marta Iglesias, Treasurer - Pascal Erba and
General Secretary - Cora Tracey.
Congratulations to all!
