Eric is originally from France but has been working in Asia since the 90s, having set up a trading company that quickly expanded into manufacturing, distribution and investment holdings in a series of sourcing Joint Ventures with European based listed company. An opportunity led Eric to sell his group including 17 subsidiaries, employing 1500 people across 7 Asian countries.
Eric purchased a new build 80 foot yacht in 2013, having been unable to find a charter yacht that met his requirements. The yacht became a successful charter yacht and it was with this that Asiamarine began.
In 2014, Asiamarine was incorporated, with a mission to bring the European yachting experience to Asia. A year later, Asiamarine was awarded the “Best Asian -based charter company award”, a title it has since repeatedly received.
The company has since grown to incorporate a brokerage division, a dealership division and a technical centre. It employs over 50 dedicated colleagues in the region. Since 2015, additional sales locations were added in the Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia. In late 2015, Asiamarine acquired a significant stake in Phuket's long established Asia Marine operation, in association with industry veteran Vincent Tabuteau.
Eric enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, and is passionate about yachting. He regularly charters yachts for his family vacations.
