SuperYacht Company, publishers of SuperYachtTimes.com, have announced the appointment of two new team members, Tom van Oossanen and Charl van Rooy. This comes after the recent announcement of Maarten Janssen’s departure from the company, and falls in line with SYC’s ever-expanding vision.
Tom van Oossanen joins the company as the new Database and Photo Manager. Tom is a passionate photographer and has photographed superyachts around the world. He is not only a talented photographer, but with his eye for detail he will ensure SYC can deliver the most up to date database to owners and the yachting industry around the world.
Taking over from Maarten Janssen is South African Charl van Rooy. His history working as a crewmember on superyachts and past experience as freelance journalist for SYT allows him to confidently assume the position as editor of SuperYacht Company. Charl will work closely with Gemma, Tom and Merijn to make sure SuperYacht Times will remain the leading news website for the superyacht industry.
Merijn de Waard commented: “We are very pleased with being able to have Tom and Charl join us in Amsterdam. Having two young and dedicated professionals with their set of expertise will certainly add value to the company and we look forward to what the future holds, with them as part of the team.”
Maarten Janssen, co-founder of the company, had the following to say, “I feel confident leaving the company in the hands of such capable young professionals. Having Charl finally join us in the office is a step in the right direction both for him and SuperYacht Company.”
