Award to honor fair brokers

ADVERTISEMENT

Following the passing of broker Richard Earp earlier this year, Fraser Yachts has created an award named in his honor that recognizes brokers who operate with transparency, fair and ethical behavior, charisma and style. Nominees should also be well respected within the industry, have longevity as a broker and still be active in the market.

A group of judges from across the industry will review all the nominations. Judges include: Eric Blair, secretary general of LYBRA; Fiona Maureso, president of MYBA; yacht designer Espen Oeino; Jay Tooker, a lawyer at Holman Fenwick Willan; Michael Bremen, sales director at Lurssen; and Gianbattista Borea d’Olmo, CEO of the Ports of Monaco. The judges will be chaired by Roberto Giorgi, chairman of Fraser Yachts..

“Richard was such a well respected and admired broker that we wanted to find a way to honor his memory and ensure that his attributes are encouraged throughout the industry,” Giorgi said. “As well as being one of the fairest yacht brokers to work with he also had a great sense of humor and charisma that was noticed by everyone he met.”

The award will be announced and presented at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show.

To nominate someone, send an email to Olivia.Pasquali@FraserYachts.com with the name of the nominated broker, a short paragraph describing the reasons for his/her nomination, and a brief bio. Nominations are accepted until Sept. 9. Brokers cannot nominate themselves.
