Today, we are pleased to announce that Dennis de Roos has joined the company as Commercial Director. Dennis will be responsible for managing the Fairline Yachts design, sales and marketing teams, and overseeing the dealer network.
Formerly Commercial Director with Morgan Cars, Dennis brings a wealth of experience from across a range of business industries, starting his career across the hospitality and services sector, followed by 10 years with General Motors and 5 years with Ingersoll Rand, developing its sales networks and delivering sustainable growth.
Dennis was born in the Netherlands, where he grew up at the family boating business. The family business meant moving to different parts of the world such as the Far East, USA, and Europe.
