KGCH gets new owner

ADVERTISEMENT

UK natives Rob and Donna Strong have bought KGCH Yacht Recruitment, a crew placement agency based in Fort Lauderdale. KGCH was started by Kendra Grey and Christine Hodgson in 2013.

Rob Strong was a police officer in London for 30 years and helped with security for the 2012 summer Olympic Games in London. He’s also worked in the Middle East in the cash industry and now works in transportation and logistics. Donna Strong has worked in human resources and marketing.

“We want to work for ourselves,” Rob Strong said. “We’re both very focused on customer service. The main thing at the moment is that KGCH will be business as usual, with Kendra still working with us.” Hodgson has retired from the company.

The Strongs intend to move to Fort Lauderdale, a process that was interrupted with the U.S. government shutdown in December and January.
