Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Jennifer McGregor brings her extensive experience within both charter management and charter marketing to add to the FGI portfolio. Beginning her journey 10 years ago at Merle Wood & Associates, it was during this four year tenure that she cultivated a wealth of knowledge about yachts and the industry by being in the middle of multiple sales deals across both Europe and the USA.
Progressing into Charter Management at Burgess, Jennifer worked for six years further developing her expertise and knowledge, specialising in yachts between 40-73 metres located in the US, Bahamas, Caribbean, Mediterranean and the Galapagos.
Fast forward to the present day, and Jennifer has a well-earned reputation for forging excellent business relationships with her clients and is now recognised as one of the industry’s top charter managers. As she explains: “Chartering is all about the guests’ experience and maximising charter income (for both owner and crew), and I love figuring out how to do that with each boat I manage, as they’re all different.”
With childhood aspirations of becoming a marine biologist following a memorable snorkelling holiday with her family in the Caribbean, Jennifer’s bucket-list yachting adventure would be Patagonia or French Polynesia, or anywhere she can dive with whale sharks. When she’s not on the water, Jennifer enjoys spending time in the great outdoors hiking, mountain biking and camping.
