Charline is a native of Canada’s beautiful Capital City, Ottawa and it’s where she achieved her Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing. After spending a couple of years in Western Canada, working in hospitality events, she settled in Toronto where she worked in events & promotions with global brands – like Champ Car, Coors Light, Xbox, NFL, and Microsoft. It wasn’t until she decided to spend a year abroad in the South of France that she discovered the yachting industry. She was determined to transfer her existing marketing skills into yachting and got her big break in 2016 when she accepted a role in Charter Marketing in South Florida.
She joined FGI Yacht Group in the company’s inaugural year after having worked for two of the largest yacht brokerage companies in the industry. Her expertise in helping yacht Owners achieve charter revenue was instrumental in building FGI’s Charter Management department. Now, her focus is as a Charter Broker where she assists charter clients with their bespoke yacht charter holidays in places like the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Caribbean, and the Bahamas. She loves travelling to the industry’s top charter shows in order to stay well versed in the available charter yacht inventory around the world.
Charline is well respected in the industry and has built a reputation for being knowledgeable, approachable, creative, and a deal closer. She’s thrilled to be part of FGI’s team and is passionate about contributing ideas that will continue to distinguish FGI from the other brokerage companies. To date, her fondest memory in yachting was sailing onboard SY Rebecca, during the St Barth’s Bucket Regatta. Outside of work, Charline enjoys good food, staying active, travelling and spending time with her family and friends.
