Leading Yacht Firm, IYC, Announces D.J. Kiernan as New U.S. Commercial Director

This past year, IYC has seen tremendous growth and we continue to be one of the leading yacht firms. Throughout the pandemic we have not only retained all of our employees but we have added more members to our expanding family. The latest addition to the team is D.J. Kiernan, who is the new U.S. Commercial Director.

Born into a sailing family, Kiernan moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2003 upon graduating from Niagara University. From there, he went on to secure his first industry role in marketing for Merle Wood & Associates. He then moved to Feadship and was instrumental in setting up the shipyard’s yacht charter division. He also founded Young Professionals in Yachting, now the largest association in the industry. As a result of his success, Kiernan later joined Camper & Nicholsons and was swiftly promoted to Director of Charter Marketing Worldwide and relocated to Monaco, where he was responsible for one of the yachting industry’s largest charter fleets.

Kiernan then branched out to form his own business development consultancy. Eventually, in 2015 he returned to yachting full-time, and now in 2021 is an integral part of the IYC team, where he manages a team of sales and charter consultants, and focuses on creating opportunities for IYC and delivering exceptional results for clients.

IYC has had an amazing year so far, leading as #1 in sales for the first half of 2021, while also maintaining the largest sales fleet in the industry. We are always looking for the best and brightest in the industry to bring IYC clients top-tier service. The IYC family will continue to grow both locally and internationally as it expands to more offices around the globe, reaching more clients every day.
