kurtCamper & Nicholsons International has appointed Kurt Fraser as its new director of marketing. Fraser will take up the new role in February 2015 following his five year tenure as sales and marketing director with Camper & Nicholsons Marinas.

His marketing career began as project director for leading Canadian agency, Fleming Creative Group, where he developed a specialty in luxury real estate marketing.
