Pinmar has strengthened its U.S. team to support rapid growth due to its new facilities at Savannah (Georgia) Yacht Center coming fully online, according to a company press release.

Jeff Berg now manages the new paint facility at SYC. An industry veteran with 36 years of experience in fairing and painting superyachts in shipyards around the world, Berg now oversees all of Pinmar’s refit projects in SYC.

Yuriel Morales and Dayan Gil have joined the production team as senior paint supervisors. Gil will head up production in Pinmar’s U.S. headquarters at Rybovich in West Palm Beach, and Morales at the company’s new Derecktor Shipyard Offices in Dania Beach. Both have extensive superyacht painting and project management experience, including running their own business, Y & D Yacht Refinishing, and previous roles with Rybovich and Classic Yacht Refinishing.

Recently appointed sales manager Stefany Worswick works as part of the Pinmar commercial team under Phil Burgess, U.S. director of sales. She is responsible for business development, revenue generation and customer relationship management for the U.S. East Coast and the Caribbean. Her industry experience includes working as chief stew on several high-profile private and charter yachts.

Pinmar USA provides painting and refinishing services in the refit market for yachts more than 40m, as well as conversion and new build projects in the U.S. on yachts up to 90m. For more information, visit gygplc.com.
