Atlantic Cruising Yachts (ACY) prides itself on its client-first approach and ability to customize new yachts precisely the way clients envision them. While commissioning can be an overwhelming process, many decisions must be made, from amenities to safety features. With thousands of successful commissions, ACY’s customers have the top resources and knowledge in the industry available to them. ACY’s expert commissioning team and yacht consultants walk our clients through building and outfitting the yacht of their dreams.
Recently, ACY’s commissioning team has expanded, with renowned industry expert Olivier Grossin stepping into the role of Commissioning Manager. With over 20 years of experience in the industry, Olivier has worked in various critical roles bringing his skills and expertise to all of ACY’s loyal customers. He started with Groupe Beneteau in 1999 as an electrical engineer managing electricity, plumbing, and engine installation. He then served as the After Sales and Technical Manager for Prestige and Jeanneau.
Olivier said, “I joined the After Sales team in 2007 overseeing the UK and Northern European regions before expanding to the entire European region. In 2010, I began a new challenge overseeing the Asia region and then the Americas.” He and his family moved to Annapolis, Maryland, in 2014 for his role as the After Sales/Customer Service and Spare Parts Manager for the Americas.
Olivier has grown his career in the boating industry, working with 15-foot yachts to 105-foot yachts; sail, power, inboard, and outboard. His extensive expertise spans all types and sizes. His knowledge, experience, and skills are widely-respected and well-known.
“Olivier is highly sought after in the industry, and we are thrilled to have him join us at Atlantic Cruising Yachts,” Chris Bent, President of Atlantic Cruising Yachts, said.
Olivier officially joined the ACY team on September 12 and is looking forward to his new role. He said, “I will manage the commissioning team to allow Ken Krasko, Technical Director, more time to focus on helping our new owners with the ordering process. My goal is to bring all my experience to the whole team to help them with their work, facilitate their understanding of the technique, and at the same time set up a global process to simplify and improve the customer experience/satisfaction.”
