Bertrand’s career began in 2007 at the age of 21, doubling as a charter broker and charter manager for a French company based in Antibes. Since then, he has gained valuable knowledge, working for some of the most established brokerage houses such as Fraser in Monaco, or taking up the challenge of setting up a charter department from the ground up, for a London-based merchant bank - setting a new benchmark for the superyacht industry.
One of the secrets of his success lies in his profound commitment to his clients’ best interests. Bertrand has never had to face a shortage of ideas when making his goals a reality. He is creative, meticulous and is truly devoted to the excellence of his work.
“It was important for me to have diverse experiences, to develop an overall understanding of my business and in 2016, to use this knowledge to choose a company with a long-term perspective. I had always been attracted by Bluewater as a company, so I feel it is thus quite natural that I am here today.”
Bertrand became the Head of Charter Management in 2022. Captain Sébastien of M.Y. Fiorente sums up the reason that Bertrand was the natural choice for this role. "Bertrand is a professional, dynamic, smiling and always available manager. I enjoy working with him because you can not only count on him in good times but he is especially there for you in bad times. He is a straightforward and honest person, on whom a captain can rely, which is paramount for me. With Bertrand, I really have the feeling of working as a team."
It is easy to see that Bertrand is passionate about his job, but when he is not working he spends most of his time exploring the chef d’oeuvres of contemporary French literature, or writing what may become his first novel one day. Perhaps. He is an avid reader and devotes a large share of his life to writing.
