Award-winning US superyacht and tender builder expands by opening office in Monaco, appointing Cyril Le Sourd to support European growth.
Hodgdon Yachts has appointed Cyril Le Sourd as European Sales & Marketing Director, operating out of the company’s new Monaco office. Le Sourd is charged to develop Hodgdon’s business activities for new sailing and motor yachts, custom tenders and superyacht interiors within the region.
As European Sales & Marketing Director, Le Sourd will be a direct liaison with clients, as well as overseeing key projects, forging business relationships and facilitating the development and growth of HODGDON Yachts in the region.
Le Sourd’s career in yachting started 14 years ago, following a degree in naval architecture. Over his time in the industry he has held a range of technical and commercial positions, including five years at OCEA shipyard as a naval architect and seven years at CMN shipyard (starting as a project engineer and eventually leading the sales and marketing for yacht building).
The opening of the Monaco office comes on the heels of the opening of the Newport, Rhode Island (USA) office. The Newport office will serve as home base to Eric Leslie in the newly established position of Sales Director for Hodgdon Yacht Services offering boatyard services as well as superyacht refit services at Hodgdon’s facilities in Maine. The Newport office will also be home base for superyacht industry veteran Holy Paterson who has served as Hodgdon’s Marketing Manager since January 2014.
