Sauleau previously worked for 15 years at VShips, the world’s largest global maritime service provider, first as executive director of crew operations for the leisure division worldwide, and at a later stage also of the cargo division in Monaco where he was in charge of 60 shore staff and 6,500 crew members.

At the end of 2013, he left VShips to become the CEO of a Family Office for an UHNWI in Monaco, operating a number of properties for the Parkview Private Collection in St.Tropez, Monaco, London and Bejing and several yachts including the M/Y Saluzi.   

Sauleau said, “I am delighted to be appointed as CEO of Fraser Yachts which has been at the forefront and leading the yachting industry for so many years. It is a real honor to work together with Roberto Giorgi again and join the Fraser family.”

“I am looking forward to taking the helm and pursuing our quest for excellence to deliver the ultimate service to our valuable existing and future customers.”

Roberto Giorgi, executive chairman of Fraser Yachts added, “Having worked with Raphael for many years, I have always appreciated his work commitment, creative attitude, team spirit, ethics and passion. My goal will be to coach, guide and mentor Raphael during 2016 and ensure that he continues to develop the new strategies for the company that I have been working on with the Board of Directors for the last 18 months.”

Mr Giorgi said he will continue in his role as Chairman, dedicating more time to strengthening the management team further and focussing on yachting industry issues.
