“Be militant! Be an organization that is going to do things! If you can find older men who will give you countenance and acceptable leadership, follow them; but if you cannot, organize separately and dispense with them. There are only two sorts of men to be associated with when something is to be done: Those are young men and men who never grow old.”
So said U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, way back in 1914. His goal of encouraging youth to strive for success and growth rings true even today, and even in the superyacht business. Indeed: Whether it’s a longtime part of their business philosophy or was spurred on by the recession, there are shipyards, designers, brokers, and others taking bold initiatives and investigating new ways to differentiate and grow their businesses.
Which is why Megayacht News has created the Megayacht News Leadership Series. Every two weeks, we’ll spotlight a company or person taking business in new directions. In a question-and-answer format, the articles will help you better understand what they’re doing and what sets them apart.
The first Megayacht News Leadership Series spotlight is featured below.
