Nicholas Edmiston, founder of Edmiston, is to step back from the day-to-day management of the business. Jamie Edmiston has become Chief Executive, with Nicholas serving as Chairman.
Nicholas Edmiston commented: “I have been involved in the yacht business for over 45 years. I am very proud to have built a business that stands for quality and expertise and innovation in what is a highly competitive market. Now is the right time to hand over day to day management to Jamie who has played a key role in Edmiston’s success. With his knowledge of the yacht business as well as his expertise in the luxury brand space I have no doubt that he will continue to take Edmiston from strength to strength.”
Jamie Edmiston is no stranger to the company, he was with them for 10 years, before moving to British Luxury brand LINLEY. Following the recent sale of LINLEY to Malaysian investors, Jamie has returned to Edmiston.
Jamie Edmiston added: “I have been intimately involved with Edmiston for much of my working life. I am delighted to take on the leadership of the business as Chief Executive and look forward to building the business for the future. We have a great team of people, and I am confident Edmiston will continue to thrive. My aim is very clear, to ensure that Edmiston continues to play a defining role in the yacht business.”
