Respected young professionals leading dealerships in key markets lies at the very heart of Burgess' Asia's strategy, an important part of Burgess' Client First and Teamwork values.
CEO and Owner, Edwin Ho, will act as the chief representative for Burgess in this region. Ho expressed his excitement for the deal, commenting: "We are delighted to partner with Burgess as they bring exceptional expertise and experience in the superyacht market globally, which we are excited to tap and bring to our clients interested in exploring the larger yachts segment."
Jean-Marc Poullet, Chairman of Burgess in Asia, added: "Having been a pioneer of the Asia yachting industry and part of it for almost 30 years, Edwin is one of the most experienced and respected yachting professionals in Asia and we are delighted to welcome Starship Yachts and him to the Burgess family!"
Although the Asian market still remains in its infancy, there is still potential for immense growth. As economies in Asia continue to soar, it is imperative that the yachting industry recognises key cultural trends, particularly those driven by a younger generation of high-net-worth individuals.
