A Few Words

About Me

Fluent in English, German, Thai and Computer

Entrepreneurial Spirit

Strategic Innovation

As an entrepreneur I have build, operated and sold 2 successful publishing companies before joining the yachting industry in 2007 That year I created one of the first private Yacht Charter Companies in Phuket. I have been working with and consulted some leading yachting companies in Asia, always with a focus on Charter Yacht Marketing. I really do like to figure things out and dive deep into challenges. There have been a few “firsts” in my career like:

  • 1993 first newspaper and magazine in Koh Samui
  • 1996 first color separation by pdf in Thailand
  • 2007 first luxurious charter yacht in Phuket
  • 2008 first online market place for charter yachts in SEAsia
  • 2019 first B2B yacht charter network, combining traditional publishing with a modern application

Over those years I have aquired a wide variety of skills ranging from interpersonal and sales through marketing and production design to a deep understanding of hardware, software and the cloud.

I am now making those skills available to you for the benefit of your business and it’s growth.

Professionals I like to work with

The Thai Connection

Chonthira Saiwaew

Nim (her nickname), is my partner in life and one of the most business savvy Thai women I know. She graduated with a masters in accounting and gained invaluable corporate experience by working with management of the Laguna Resorts and Hotels group.

Not only has she vast experience in hospitality, real estate, luxury yachting and other tourism related sectors, she also is very well connected to various government agencies and knows how to work the intricacies of bureaucracy.¬†She has helped with business registrations, all kinds of permits, bookkeeping support and is one of the driving forces behind Thailands “Superyacht Charter License”.

Nim is the proud mother of a 4 year old who constantly morphs between a princess and a little devil. So it is not often that she has time to help fellow business owners but she does her best to accommodate when asked for help.
