The luxury yachting firm reveals changes during first day of Dubai International Boat Show
Camper & Nicholsons has announced a team change in the Middle East, during the first day of the Dubai International Boat Show. Giovanni Alessi Anghini has been appointed as managing director, while Behzad Saberi has joined the office as senior sales advisor.
Alessi Anghini joined Camper & Nicholsons four years ago as chief innovation & technology officer and will commence this new role alongside his existing responsibilities.
Saberi brings over 15 years of industry experience, having worked in management, charter, and new construction. He will be based in Dubai.
“I have always harboured a passion for the marine industry, even as a young teen, and my career began crossing oceans aboard VLCC tankers, where I obtained a certificate of competency to navigate vessels of unlimited size internationally,” Saberi says. “I strive to remain abreast of technological advancements and improvements in yachting, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with clients.
“In recent years, the industry has seen tremendous growth in the manufacturing and sale of yachts, with great innovations, improvements in safety and enhanced comfort,” Saberi continues. “For me, a good sales advisor must be professional, knowledgeable and dedicated to meeting the needs and expectations of their clients. I have built long-standing relationships with clients, partners and subcontractors. I believe in honesty and transparency.”
“We are excited to welcome Behzad to the Camper & Nicholsons family here in the Middle East,” says Alessi Anghini. “His presence will reinforce the team’s regional market knowledge, widen our connections, strengthen our regional presence, and further advance Camper & Nicholsons as a global brand and provider.”
