Mark Cavendish has been appointed as Sales and Marketing Director at the Dutch Super Yacht builder Hessen, replacing Fabio Ermetto, who left at the end of June 2013.
Mark has worked closely with Fabio at Heesen Yachts since leaving Benetti in 2008, and has more than 35 years experience in the naval and yachting industry.
In addition, to the appointment of Cavendish, Niels Vaessen also joins the board, in the capacity of Finance Director. He has previously worked at PwC and has been working for Heesen as finance manager since 2012.
Together with Hans Boerakker, already a board member who carries on in his capacity of Production Director, the company boardroom is again staffed by three directors.
