Northrop & Johnson has recruited Connie Wadeson as the newest charter broker at its Newport office.

Wadeson brings to Northrop & Johnson exceptional knowledge and experience in the charter industry. After earning a bachelor’s in Finance at Penn State University, she worked as a commercial banker for seven years. She then left the corporate world to pursue her passions of fine cuisine and travel, and began a 10-year career as a chef and stewardess on both sailing and motoryachts.

Wadeson eventually left the charter world for a land-based pharmaceutical sales and management position. But her love of the yachting industry has brought her back to Northrop & Johnson, where she will be an integral part of the Newport charter team. Wadeson’s extensive experience in the yachting industry combined with her strong professional sales background perfectly positions her for success as a charter broker.
