Bertrand Vogèle, Président Administrateur Délégué & Group Managing Director of the YPI Group, is pleased to announce the appointment of Will Allen as Sales Broker with YPI Brokerage Monaco, the Sales Division of Yachting Partners International.
“Will has been with us for just under a year now," explains Vogèle. "The work he has initiated for our Market Intelligence has been very impressive and he will be carrying this work on in his role as Sales Broker. I believe the more informed and market aware a broker is, the better the service he can provide for his clients.”
Will comes to YPI Brokerage from Cheshire in England via Oxford University – where he studied Latin and Greek (“the Greats”) - and the City of London where he enjoyed life as an Equity Capital Markets (ECM) Broker.
“I wanted a change,” Will Allen tells SuperYachtTimes.com. “I wanted to learn French, live in the South of France and get my teeth into something I knew I could enjoy and make a difference in. I’ve seen that proper Yacht Broking - Yacht Broking when it really makes a difference - is about integrity and winning trust. You only win trust by your actions, by delivering…delivering discreet, timely and objective advice; by making sure the many different parties in any transaction are all working together, whether they be captains, owners, designers or shipyards. Ultimately it’s about understanding what clients want and then helping them get it. That’s the job…and I’ve a wealth of experience around me here in YPI Brokerage to help me - Alex Braden, our founding Chairman, has been buying and selling some of the world’s most famous yachts for over 35 years; Bertrand Vogèle has most recently been involved in the superb sale of Silver, Matt Albert is a seasoned professional, Will Bishop, Mike Rich and Emmanuel Carage all have very specific experience. I’m looking forward to what’s to come…and to making a difference.”
