Baltic Yachts has appointed a new chief executive officer, Anders Kurten, who will join the company in September. He is currently Director, Products at Inha Works Ltd, a subsidiary of Yamaha Motor Europe manufacturing Buster, Cross and Yamarin boats and is also chairman of Finnboat, the umbrella organisation for the country’s marine industry.
Anders Kurten, (48), who has more than 15 years experience in marine industry management across both the sailing and powerboat sectors, will continue to drive the strategy at Baltic Yachts together with Henry Hawkins, who becomes Executive Vice President concentrating on sales, marketing and after sales.
Jurate Keblyte, whose interim role as chief financial operating officer finishes in July, will remain on the company’s advisory board.  She said: “I am delighted that Baltic Yachts and the Baltic Family will be benefiting from Anders Kurten’s extensive experience in the marine industry and his proven management skills.”
With a new order for a Baltic 117 Custom signed recently, the Baltic 146 Custom in production and excellent prospects for new orders, the company is well prepared for the future.
