TheYachtMarket appoints former FMG MD

Rob Paterson

The former Group Managing Director of Friday Media Group, Rob Paterson, has been appointed as Director of Europe’s leading boat sales website

The move follows the appointment last year of former BMF president Jon Eads to the role of Chairman at TheYachtMarket which, since its foundation in early 2003, has become a major power in the boating world, developing into an indispensible online resource for anyone wanting to buy, sell or charter a boat.

Prior to joining TheYachtMarket, Rob Paterson worked at the Friday Media Group, starting in 1991 on the Friday-Ad paper and working his way up to Group MD of the Friday Media Group in 2013. Along the way he has developed key digital skills at the cutting-edge of online marketing, monetisation and international market development.

Commenting on the new appointment, Richard Roberts, CEO and Founder of TheYachtMarket said: "Rob brings crucial know-how to TheYachtMarket and will be a real asset to our management team. His expansive knowledge of Classified Marketplaces, Digital Marketing and his international experience will be invaluable as we develop and refine more innovative solutions for our clients and
grow our global presence."

Jon Eads, Chairman at TheYachtMarket said "Rob's appointment continues to strengthen TheYachtMarket Board of Directors as we develop our business plans and international reach. Our focus is on providing an outstanding sales platform for both yacht brokers and private clients. The recent appointment of key personnel together with Rob joining the Board is a very positive step
forward for our business."

Rob Paterson added "I'm looking forward to helping the TheYachtMarket realise their potential by developing great products and services that make doing business in the marine industry easier."
