Following the announcement on 11 February that Northrop & Johnson is opening a new office in Newport Beach, California, the US-based brokerage firm has made a further announcement confirming that it is also opening an office in Burleigh Heads on Australia’s Gold Coast.
At the helm of Northrop & Johnson Australia – bringing the international superyacht world to his domestic clients – will be managing director Cameron Bray. Bray’s in-depth industry knowledge is the result of his roles as a captain, sales broker, retail charter agent and yacht manager.
On returning to his country of origin, Australia, Bray continued his career in the superyacht industry with the creation of his own firm, Bray Management, which is to become Northrop & Johnson Australia. He is also on the Superyacht Australia committee, aiding the development and advancement of the Australian superyacht community.
"Northrop & Johnson is a market leader. The company’s global intelligence tools, marketing and website add to its personable approach and company culture, which feels very much like a big family. Joining forces with the dynamic team at Northrop & Johnson felt like a natural progression [for Bray Management],” says Bray. “We can now offer complete end-to-end service to Australian clients, both locally and globally, with a dedicated office and team on the ground. We’re really excited to join the Northrop & Johnson family."
Joining Bray in the Northrop & Johnson Australia office will be Charter Manager Crystal Corrin, who has been a Gold Coast local for more than 10 years. Corrin has developed her skill base from numerous key positions in sales and account management across various major industries and will no doubt be a valuable addition to the Northrop & Johnson team.
