Hodgdon has recently opened a Monaco based office, appointing a new European sales and marketing director in the process. Cyril Le Sourd will be operating out of Monaco, and is charged with developing Hodgdon’s business activities for new sailing and motor yachts, custom tenders and superyacht interiors within the region.
With a career in the yachting industry spanning over 14 years, Le Sourd has held a range of technical and commercial positions, including five years at OCEA shipyard as a naval architect and seven years at CMN shipyard. He comments, “I am honored to be joining such a renowned shipyard with such a prestigious heritage. I have enormous respect for the attention to detail and dedication that is shown by the highly skilled craftsmen at Hodgdon. Building a yacht should be an enjoyable and well-planned journey, and I look forward to helping guide our European clients through their projects, from the first sketches to after-sales support.”
The opening of the Monaco office comes on the heels of the opening of the Newport, Rhode Island (USA) office. Hogdon’s CEO, Tim Hodgdon, states, "We are very excited to be opening an office in Monaco, at the epicenter of the European luxury yacht industry. There is no place on Earth that represents uniqueness and quality at a higher level than Monaco. It is therefore a fantastic fit for the dedication to innovation, quality and integrity that Hodgdon holds central to its core business philosophy.”
