Fort Lauderdale-based Northrop & Johnson has hired Michael Payne to oversee its operations in Europe.

Payne is a sales broker with more than 30 years of experience. Prior to joining Northrop & Johnson, he was CEO of Camper & Nicholsons, based in the Monaco office.

“I have always respected Kevin Merrigan and the Northrop & Johnson team,” Payne stated in a company press release. “I’m definitely on a mission in my new position as managing director Europe, and I look forward to performing with the Northrop & Johnson team.”

Payne began his career in yachting as crew and moved up the ranks to captain. Eventually, he made the move ashore to the brokerage sector of the industry. He has worked in every division of yachting, from sales and brokerage to retail charter and charter management, to management and new construction. He has sold more than 200 yachts, according to the company.

“Michael will be integral in helping to expand Northrop & Johnson’s presence throughout Europe,” Northrop & Johnson COO Daniel Ziriakus stated. “We are so excited to have him on our team.”
