The local managers in China include Jin Hai Shen, Pan Jian and Ericka Duan. In addition to the market introduction of imported yachts in China, the initial goal of the China office is to facilitate the growth of the charter market in Asia. This will be done through a charter-to-buy initiative. Furthermore, Northrop & Johnson’s China office aims to aid Chinese shipyards in establishing links with the international yachting market.
“I am impressed with the skills and input of our new team in The People's Republic of China,” says Northrop & Johnson Asia Managing Director Bart Kimman. “We spent a long time trying to find the ideal group of people to further develop our business objectives and add value to the Northrop & Johnson brand in Asia. We look forward to fully utilize the opportunities offered by the emerging market in China.”
“I am delighted to have found Northrop & Johnson,” says Hugo van Schaik, Executive Director of Northrop & Johnson Asia. “I feel Northrop & Johnson is the best brand in the yachting industry and joining the company will offer my team a broad range of products and services suitable for the Chinese market.”
The head office of Northrop & Johnson China will be located at #305 South Taiping Road, Room 605 Nanjing, 210000 P.R. China. Additional offices personnel will be located in Guangzhou and Qingdao.
