Monaco Marine shifts to dual management structure

ADVERTISEMENT

Monaco Marine, which comprises seven shipyards and one marina from Monaco to Marseille, has announced a new, dual-management structure at its La Seyne-Toulon shipyard.

As general project manager, Sean Blair will manage the project managers, the projects themselves and customer relations, while Thomas Guerry, as operations manager, will be responsible for the site itself.

“With this new way of management, all the important decisions will be discussed and taken by two people,” Blair stated. “Separating the competences will allow the yard to reach new levels of excellence.”

According to a company press release, the La Ciotat and Marseille shipyards will implement the same organizational changes in the coming months.

Meanwhile, work began Sept. 2 on the group’s shipyard in Golfe de Saint Tropez, including water-tightening the berths, increasing boat storage capacity, the installation of new cranes to ease boat handling, and building renovations. Renovation of the entire yard is expected to be complete by summer 2021, although all work will be put on hold between Christmas and July 2020 to avoid inconvenience to the yard’s clients.

In other news, Jonny Sutton has joined Monaco Marine’s commercial team. With a focus on becoming  more international, the team now includes English, French and Italian speakers.

“My role is to build and strengthen the relationships we have with the key individuals involved in the refit and repair process,” Sutton stated.
