My Present 
Hi, my name is Marcy Williams, and I am the Director of Crew Services with Northrop & Johnson. One of the best parts of my job is helping crew find their dream job. It puts a big smile on my face when I run into a Captain who I helped get their first Deckhand job and their first Captain position. I strive to match each crew member with the dynamics of the yacht. Finding the right qualifications is easy but matching the personalities of the incoming crew member, to the crew on board can be a bit of a challenge. That’s what makes the job interesting.

My Past
I grew up in Montreal, Canada and moved to Florida in 1978. In 1989, I started my career in yachting as a stewardess on PRINCESS DEL MAR, a 105’ Broward, where I remained for the next three years. I then joined Bob Saxon Associates in 1992 where I spent the next five years learning about the different aspects of the yacht service industry.

I ventured into real estate, as I was planning to have a family and needed the flexible schedule to work with my child. I built a strong following of clients but continued to participate in local boat shows and attend educational seminars in order to stay close to the yachting industry. I rejoined the yachting industry with Merrill-Stevens Crew placement in 2006 where I honed in on my talent for reaching and communicating with captains and crew. I joined Northrop & Johnson’s Crew Placement division in April 2008 where I have spent 14 years living my passion of helping crew find their dream yachts.
Why I love N&J
I love each and every person that is on my team. They are helpful, knowledgeable, and great to work with. Having the opportunity to go to boat shows globally gives me the chance to meet new people and crew in person and getting to know the crew helps me to put the right person in the right place.

My Future
I plan on staying with Northrop & Johnson for as long as they will have me.

My Motto
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

My Outside-office Life
I am a very social person and love to have friends over or get togethers elsewhere. I’m always on the go, whether it be a festival, road trip, a fun day at the beach or relaxing with friends and family.
