UK Group Director & Senior Charter Broker
Hanneke's passion for all things nautical was ignited while crewing on charter yachts in the Mediterranean during the mid-1990s. Once shore-based in Mallorca, her love affair continued, working as a charter and sales specialist and becoming a firmly established figure within the industry. Moving to the UK in 2002, she joined Burgess as a Brokerage Manager and later established the company's OceanStyle division, which she successfully developed and managed for both for sale and charter. During an industry career break lasting a decade, Hanneke launched her own online retail business, as well as taking up residence as Sales Director for a luxury ski chalet operator, amassing a loyal client database and utilising her superb networking skills.
When it comes to creating a bespoke service, Hanneke values the personal relationships she forms with her charter clients and considers this an integral part of fully understanding and meeting their travel needs.
In her spare time, she enjoys racing vintage cars competitively, loves adventure travel and is a competent sailor, skier & diver.
