Palma-based Pinmar, a yacht refinishing company, recently appointed Mar Pallàs as general manager of the company’s operations in France. This is a new role based on Pinmar’s growing business in La Ciotat Shipyard.
Pallàs joins Pinmar’s senior management team and will lead the commercial and operational teams in La Ciotat. She has overall responsibility for customer relations and profit performance in France, according to a company press release. She will report to CEO Remy Millot and COO Raúl Galán of Pinmar’s parent company, GYG.
Pallàs has previously held senior roles in expansion, strategic relations, operations and general
management for companies in the tech mobility industry such as Hailo, mytaxi and Scoot. A qualified civil engineer, she completed her executive education at IESE Business School. Originally from Barcelona, she now lives in France and is fluent in French and English, as well as being a native Catalan speaker.
“Since our integration of the ACA Marine business, we have prioritized La Ciotat as a strategically important Mediterranean refit location, especially with the major expansion plans recently announced by La Ciotat Shipyard,” CEO Millot said. “We are investing in the expansion of the team and facilities in La Ciotat to create another important operational refit hub for Pinmar, and Mar’s new role will drive this development of the business in the region. Mar will have access to all the group’s resources and the full support of the central management team.”
