Joining the founding partners Peter Thompson, David Westwood and Michael White in the successful growth and consolidation of TWW Yachts, Hein Velema has taken on the role of CEO and become a partner and shareholder of the company.
Hein joined TWW Yachts last year and has been instrumental in the company’s recent growth trajectory, which has included the addition of Yacht Management & Crew Placement as well as the expansion of the brokerage team and TWW's charter and sales fleets.
Michael White commented: “Our aim has always been to build an ethical and sustainable company that offers brokers and staff long term security and opportunities to flourish and become more and more successful. And with this aim fairly and squarely in our sights we believe Hein will help all of us achieve this goal.”
2019 has seen TWW Yachts go from strength to strength, including the recent conclusion of the 8th sale of the year, a 73m yacht, hot on the heels of 50m, 52m and 69m. This year as also seen the continuous blossoming of a high-quality charter fleet, now with 20 yachts, and the opening of a Turkish office in Istanbul. To ensure TWW Yachts' services to clients remain in keeping with a business ethos based on excellence, Hein brings his exceptional abilities in logic, rationale and relationships to bear.
Dutch by both nature and nationality, Hein resides in Monaco. He has a Masters degree in Economics and has thus far had an illustrious career in yachting with senior management positions at Feadship, Fraser Yachts and several other superyacht companies. TWW Yachts, with the addition of Hein to the partnership, has taken another leap on their bold and effective path to long term success.
