Mr Holmes joined Lee Marine shortly after its inception in 1997. During his 20 years in Asia, he has been involved in hundreds of yacht sales, both brokerage and new construction, and has witnessed the steady growth of the yachting industry in Asia firsthand, noted a release announcing his new appointment.

Mr Holmes enjoys introducing clients to yachting and is known for his personable style and willingness to go the extra mile for his clients, the release noted.

“When you take time to understand the clients wants and needs it becomes a personal mission to service them fully and correctly,” he says. “After all, a successful on-water lifestyle relies on many factors that must be considered and managed, and we are here to turn a client’s dream into reality in the most effective way possible.”

The appointment follows Lee Marine acquiring full license rights to Northrop & Johnson Asia earlier this year, when Joshua Lee, founder of and Managing Director of Lee Marine, assumed the role of Managing Director for Northrop & Johnson Asia effective immediately.

“We are extremely excited and honoured to have Josh joining the Northrop & Johnson senior management team as Managing Director for Asia where we expect to see significant growth in the coming years” said Northrop & Johnson COO Daniel Ziriakus.

“We feel that under the revamped management, our Asia team will be able to better assist our clients and achieve greater success, while being more integrated with our Australian office, four offices in Europe and six offices in the US.”

“I see this as a natural move for both Lee Marine and Northrop & Johnson Asia as we will concentrate both companies on their core strengths. Both companies under my leadership will continue to thrive in their respective areas,” Mr Lee said.

“Lee Marine will continue its award-winning sales and after-sales service of new and used vessels smaller than 30 meters and Northrop & Johnson will concentrate on large brokerage sales, new construction and project management, charter and vessel management services,” he added.
