Following the appointment of global marketing manager Irini Saranti in 2015, the IYC marketing team has received another bolster as Mark Erlewine joins the team as US Marketing Manager. Previously art director at Camper & Nicholsons, and with a background in design, advertising and copywriting, Mark brings a wealth of marketing and creative experience to IYC. With extensive digital and design experience across both print and online platforms, he will prove a great asset to the team and work with Irini to continue growing IYC’s strong market presence.
Two appointments have been made in the US charter department, which welcomes Jessica Hill as Junior Charter Manager and Elena Novoselova as Charter Administrator.
A Fort Lauderdale native, Jessica joins IYC with an extensive yachting background having worked on board yachts in interior and deck roles for many years before coming ashore. She will be working under the mentorship of Terry Hines, one of the industry’s best-known names, before moving into charter management. “I am excited to be a part of the new IYC, clearly an innovative, growing, company, with a passion for its clients, its employees, and the world of yachting,” she says.
Born in Russia Novoselova began her career as a stockbroker before moving into yachting, working on Moran & Ship’s management team. Her fluent command of Russian will prove a real asset when working with IYC’s Russian clients, together with her significant experience in financial and operational management. "I am very thankful for the opportunity to start a new chapter of my life with such an incredibly professional team of people,” says Elena.
