Julien Solari has been appointed as Camper & Nicholsons’ Chief Commercial Officer in Asia, where the company has opened a new office in Ocean Financial Center in Singapore to complement its Hong Kong office opened in 2017.
Solari has over 10 years of experience in the yachting sector, with almost six based in Singapore with a leading regional yacht dealer, where the Frenchman was Country Manager since 2019.
“I’m truly delighted to join this iconic name of the industry as Asia CCO. Asia is a fantastic cruising ground where owners can enjoy yachts all year round. Over the past few years, many buyers came into the 80-110ft sector, and are now starting to look for larger yachts with more range to further explore amazing scenery and carry more water toys, diving equipment, and so on,” Solari said.
“With our amazing New Build, Yacht Management and Charter Management divisions, we are the ideal partner to accompany owners in their superyacht journey. Singapore is ideally placed between Middle East, Hong Kong and Australia, and it’s natural for C&N to set up an office here.”
Paolo Casani, Group CEO of Camper & Nicholsons, said: “We look forward to improving and consolidating our growth in Asia, and I am confident that Julien’s extensive experience and knowledge of the yachting sector will enable us to further develop the C&N presence in Southeast Asia and beyond.”
Founded in 1782 as a shipyard in England, Camper & Nicholsons celebrated its 240th anniversary last year, when it also opened an office in Dubai (click for article). Camper & Nicholsons is owned by Lai Sun Group and the company’s operational headquarters is located in Monaco.
