Hill Robinson US expands team

Hill Robinson US office is pleased to announce the addition of Dee Kraley to the Fort Lauderdale team. With more than twenty years experience in the yachting industry, 16 years of them with LYBRA companies, Dee brings a wealth of knowledge with her, which will be put to good use as a Senior Charter Manager USA. Beginning her career as a Merrill Lynch Commodity broker, after 10 years a chance meeting aboard a yacht in 1989, led to a quite alternative new career in Charter.

Starting out on a small but busy yacht in Turkey, Dee then worked as a Chief Stewardess for seven years on charter yachts ranging in size from 60’ to over 200’ and has travelled extensively throughout the East and West Mediterranean, Caribbean, Bahamas and New England. Recruited off a yacht in 1996 by Bob Saxon & Associates, Inc. to work shoreside in the charter division, Dee put roots down in Fort Lauderdale where she currently resides with her rescue dog and cat. When not working on charters, Dee can be found at the stables or competing in show jumping events on her 17h Hanoverian gelding.

“I am thrilled to add Dee to our growing US team. Her extensive experience and immense industry knowledge is invaluable for the growth of Hill Robinson on the US charter market.” Barrett Wright, President Hill Robinson USA, is enthusiastic about her new colleague, “Alongside our expanding offices in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach, with positive client feedback, the Hill Robinson charter experience is set to get better and better.”
