Even before her appointment was officially announced, Jill accompanied Managing Director James Ward and Commercial Director Rob Sullivan to MYS2017. During four days of intensive meetings and networking events (with some down time of course in La Rascasse & Stars ‘n’ Bars to name a few) she met clients, shipyards & partners to discuss current and future projects.
But Jill didn’t just restrict herself to the hustle and bustle of the main show areas… indeed, she witnessed the unveiling of several exclusive launches. After all, who wants to let a little thing like not actually having started a job yet get in the way of discovering the latest technological advances? Jill said: “My main role was to get the Electric String name out there. Changing people’s perception. However, as a team we witnessed some great tech…. Crestron always have a great stand. That and Omniyon’s Yacht Cloud 4K movie system were our highlights at MYS.”
And what were the main things clients were looking for? “It might sound like a cliché, but other than an interest in seeing the latest tech, when it comes down to it everyone wants the same thing: a reliable system at a decent price,” she explained.
