sophiaOcean Independence has expanded its global charter team with the addition of new broker Sophia Tutino. Based in Albourne, UK from January 2015, Tutino brings with her a wealth of charter experience in the superyacht industry.

After graduating from Lyon University with a Master’s Degree in business, Tutino started her yachting career with OceanStyle by Burgess in London. Subsequently, 18 months on, she moved to its Monaco office and started up the OceanStyle Charter Department, where she worked as both a charter manager and retail broker for nearly seven years. Following this she took a career break, where she enjoyed extensive world travels and broadened her horizons. On return to London in mid-2014, Tutino joined Victor, an on-demand private jet company as its sales director. However this was short lived as, realising she missed the superyacht industry, she has now joined the Ocean Independence charter brokerage team.
