People on the move


Jochen Brill has joined brokerage firm Northrop & Johnson as a sales broker in its Palma office. After graduating from university with degrees in economics and management, he tried his hand at banking in Barcelona. Jochen then joined the yachting industry as an export manager at Belliure. He has worked for Michael Schmidt brokerage, Newton/Merrill Stevens and Dahm International, where he was the brokerage director.

Katie Macpherson has joined Camper & Nicholsons as part of the charter brokerage team in Palm Beach.

Macpherson vacationed on chartered sailing yachts in the Caribbean as a child. After graduating from American University, she worked in London and then Ft. Lauderdale where she was director of first impressions for a boutique yachting company and eventually executive assistant to the president. She then moved to an international company where she became one of the top-booking retail charter yacht brokers in the industry.

She is an active member of the Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association (MYBA), American Yacht Charter Association (AYCA), the Charter Yacht Brokers Association (CYBA), and Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA).

North Palm Beach, Fla.-based Technomarine Yachts has added two brokers: Craig Williams, who spent 20 years as founder, co-owner and vice president of operations at Lazarra Yachts in Tampa, and Ricardo Ruelos, who served as CEO of Westship World Yachts, manufacturer of yachts 110-140 feet.

Both will be based in Technomarine’s new office in Bradenton on Florida’s southwest coast.
