Merle Wood & Associates has announced the addition of Eric Lepeingle to the team. Joining as a European sales broker for the US brokerage firm, Lepeingle got his start working in the yachting industry as a consultant to the Rodriguez Group, and soon after became one of their sales directors in the US.
In his nearly two decades of yachting experience, Eric was the sales director for the Sunseeker Superyacht Division in France, and collaborated with Wally Yachts in sales and business development. Eric had sold and delivered approximately 2,000 feet of yachts between 2005 and 2011. During his time with the Rodriguez Group, he was responsible for selling most of the Leopard production line of 31 to 46-metre vessels from 2006 - 2009.
Eric said, “I am very excited to have joined the team at Merle Wood & Associates, and look forward to many successes working alongside one of the most recognized names in yacht brokerage.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Eric Lepingle to our team of yachting experts, and are proud to bring aboard someone with the caliber of business and build experience with which he complements our company,” said Merle Wood.
