|Col McPherson - General Manager|
Known, dedicated and well respected in the marine industry Col brings over 25 years experience to our sales team and has been a hands on marina owner / operator for over 16 years having the Bertram Caribbean franchise in that time. Many people still address him as Col Mc Bertram. His wealth of knowledge in the marine industry and previous background in finance and hospitality gives him great credentials to discuss all aspects of boating, refits, upgrades, finance, insurance and more.
|Nicole Allen - International Public Relations Manger Charter Division|
As a local girl who enjoys all water and outside activities such as boating, going to the beach, water skiing and walking it is only fitting that she enjoys working in the Luxury Motor Yacht industry.
Nicole started her career at Paradise Waters in real estate administration. Her vibrant personality, dedication and determination led her to Computerland where a passion for computers was found. Having had her own successful business on the Gold Coast it has given her the experience necessary to personally assist Grant and Sharon.
|Scott Wellington Stones - Sales Executive & Lazzara Motor Yacht Manager Australia|
Scott was born in Windsor NSW. Coming from two generations of drag boat racer’s in the family on the Hawkesbury River, Scott pursued this family passion learning to drive his grandfathers 46 footer and purchased his first boat at the age of 6. From this early age he became heavily involved in water skiing, jet skiing, then in his later teens on to power boat racing to speeds in excess of 100 mph.
|Audrey Greenwood - Executive Yacht Broker|
At the age 22 I owned my first charter boat, a 26ft Cougar Catamaran "Wild Cat" which operated as a dive boat out of Noosa. My future husband at the time owned and operated the only fishing charter business in Noosa, also using powered catamarans. After a couple of years in the industry we built and operated alongside our other businesses a 60ft licensed cruise boat.
It was an interesting career choice for me, particularly at that time, as it was a male dominated industry, which was always my biggest challenge, however I have loved it.
I have an extensive clientele Australia wide and internationally, I have been sole agent acting for many government authorities and marine rescue organizations over the years and still retain my sole agency with the Queensland Police Service, something I am extremely proud of as it speaks volumes about my integrity in business.
With the relocation of my family to the Gold Coast 3 years ago, and my desire to spend more time on the boats and less time administrating, I began to look for an opportunity which would allow me to do what I love.
I am excited to have this opportunity with Grant Torrens International Marine and I look forward to bringing my expertise to the team and having a happy and prosperous relationship here.
