Senior Staff:

Janet Bloomfield, President and Head of Sales

Janet co-founded our company under the auspices of personal attention and exceptional service, which she had practiced in professional marketing roles for many national and international business organizations. She had worked on marketing leadership and electronic commerce initiatives since the internet's inception.

Janet first entered the marine industry as a Vice President tasked with managing online marketing strategies and growing partnerships in the crewed yacht charter industry. Since then Janet has gained over 20 years experience helping her clients plan fully crewed luxury charters around the world. With an exceptionally large set of repeat clients she certainly has earned the description of "a proven charter broker".

Janet has personally visited charter destinations worldwide from Alaska to The Great Barrier Reef. Annually attending trade only shows to see new yachts to charter, she was one of the first USA based yacht charter brokers accepted for membership in MYBA, the premier association for the industry where membership has to be earned; she is also a member of AYCA, CYBA, and IYBA.

Nancy Van Winter, yacht charter specialist

Nancy joined International Yacht Charter Group as a proven charter broker with particular expertise in the scuba diving market.

Well versed in interacting with clients and ensuring her clients are well matched to the ideal yacht she reinforces the dedication to customer service we are known for. She has facilitated the private charter vacations of clients on board crewed yachts throughout the world, with particular focus in the Eastern Mediterranean and Caribbean. She attends yacht charter shows in the USA, Caribbean and Greece to ensure she is as familiar as possible with the new yachts and crews available for her clients.

Nancy’s determination, attention to detail, and boundless energy compliments well the expertise and proven success of the other staff at the International Yacht Charter Group. Every request sets the stage for a new challenge for Nancy, and she relishes solving each one - taking care of the details so her clients can focus solely on what they should - enjoying their well-earned vacations of a lifetime.
