Proteus Recruitment was founded on my passion for high-performance ships and superyachts, my admiration for those that design, build and service them, and my 25+ years’ experience in the industry.
Boats have been my life: from sailing as a teenager off the Isle of Wight, to working two decades as a mast & rigging specialist for both race and superyacht, followed by a further five years as a technical marine recruitment expert for the motoryacht, sailing yacht and commercial shipping industry.
I’ve seen, sailed, and serviced almost every type of boat, both on the water and in the yard. I’ve worked with America’s Cup, Volvo Ocean Race, and Rolex Maxi yachts; with sloops, megayachts and multihulls — just to name a few! I’ve managed an array of difficult and complex projects across the globe and been hands-on wherever required.
Throughout my 25 years in the industry, I’ve built a reputation for being dependable, adaptable, and personable. I understand the bespoke and high specification needs of my clients, and I take a personalised and meticulous approach to every project.
