Jeremy Roche joins Wider as Sales and Marketing Director

Jeremy Roche has been appointed as Sales and Marketing Director of Wider, the Italian yacht builder founded in 2010 by Tilli Antonelli.

Roche's past career is strongly connected to yachting; he spent six years working as crew on board various yachts, both power and sail. During this period he completed three Atlantic crossings and assisted in the delivery of a yacht from Thailand to France.

He is widely known to the superyacht industry, having been known as the face of Boat International magazine. In a remarkable career at the publication, spanning over 13 years - the last eight as Sales Director - he has gained the respect and confidence of top executives across the world, from shipyards to brokerage houses, and from Europe to Australia. His remarkable knowledge of the industry and strong management skills have been a key part in his success during this time, and he will now apply them to promoting the Wider brand and increasing sales.

"We are overjoyed to have Jeremy on board." said Tilli Antonelli, President of Wider “He brings an international experience in the world of superyachts, such as strong relationships and a great reputation in the brokerage world, that is of fundamental importance to the growth of our company. He was the missing piece of the puzzle and fits in perfectly with the rest of our team members."

Jeremy Roche comments: “It is a real thrill for me to join a shipyard with such exciting and ambitious plans for the future. The satisfaction in seeing a new range of yachts being built, to exacting standards of quality, and delivered to happy customers is what drove me to be part of the Wider team."
