Global Yacht Management Director
Celine Robins, IYC’s Global Yacht Management Director, brings dynamism and expertise to the yachting industry. Born in France, she studied Management and Economics at Paris’ prestigious Panthéon-Sorbonne University, before completing her Master’s in Business Administration at Clark University in Boston.
On graduating, Celine stepped into her first yachting role at Rodriguez Group. Her entrepreneurial spirit combined with her passion for yachting saw her rise through the ranks quickly, taking on the role of US Operations Manager where she oversaw the management of the company’s Mangusta, Leopard, ISA and Astondoa yacht portfolio. After five years, she made the strategic move to Overmarine in Fort Lauderdale to take up the position of US Manager for Mangusta.
Celine is a natural problem solver who brings innovative solutions to the table. She has transitioned through multi-faceted roles, always within the yachting sphere. In 2012, she moved across to the Fort Lauderdale-based luxury lifestyle publication Invictus Magazine – the first “By Invitation Only” publication of its kind in the world. This furthered her pool of HNWI contacts within the yachting and private aviation sectors, and ultimately led to the next phase of her career.
In 2018, she undertook a second degree in Entrepreneurship Studies at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania where she honed her business skills. That same year, she came up with the idea to create an innovative top-of-the-line yacht management tool that intricately organizes and covers every aspect of yacht management experience, making it easy and seamless for owners and captains. At the same time, she founded One-to-One Yacht Management, a software company that offers all aspects of yacht management, including finance, crew management, administration, technical support, ISM and ISPS.
Celine brings a deep understanding of the yachting industry to her role at IYC, along with integrity, an aptitude for intelligent planning and flair for creating exclusive client service.
