Thierry Voisin, Chairman
With 35 years of experience and a strong network in the yachting industry and on the French Riviera, in 1993, it was a natural progression for Thierry to create his own yachting agency: Thierry Voisin Partnership. His reputation as a key player in the industry quickly grew as he established himself at the very heart of yachting with his tenacity and precision helping to develop his own business alongside the French yachting industry in general. He was one of the instrumental figures in implementing the statutes for commercial yachting, a process that took some 10 years of patient and diligent work.
Thierry was and remains one of the most authoritative interlocutors with the tax and customs services. It was in part the recognition of his skills and hard work that in 2007, saw him elected as the first French President of MYBA (Mediterranean Yacht Broker Association), referred to as the Worldwide Yachting Association which advocates good professional practices and defends the interests of global yachting. Thierry still holds prominent posts in the industry such as President of ECPY (the European Committee of Professional Yachting) and his views and advice are sought by many yachting professionals.
