Fraser Yachts CEO Anders Kurtén

Brokerage firm Fraser has appointed Anders Kurtén as its new chief executive.

Kurtén was most recently CEO at Finnish sailing yacht builder Baltic Yachts, where he helped spearhead and execute the company’s recent strategic turnaround.

“We have conducted one of the most extensive worldwide searches ever in our objective of seeking out the right profile for the role of CEO at Fraser — an industry-leading brand respected worldwide by clients and industry alike for its people, service, insight, and results,” says Chuck Cashman, on behalf of the board of Fraser Yachts.

“I am pleased to say we didn’t need to compromise on any of our core criteria. Anders comes with an in-depth and pragmatic understanding of the yachting and luxury sectors, a knowledge and passion for the Internet of Things (IoT) and its application for greater client service and support, and a track record for delivering sustained growth through hands-on team inspiration and drive. We are pleased to welcome Anders to the Fraser family and looking forward to an exciting time ahead.”

Kurtén adds: “I am truly excited, proud and privileged to join Fraser – in my mind the leading provider of brokerage and luxury yachting services. This is a great opportunity to join a company that I have always admired and considered the benchmark of excellence. I look forward to working with and leading this proven, consistent, and motivated team of dedicated professionals to achieve even greater success — together.”
