Ocean Yacht Systems, a provider of rigging, hydraulics and thruster solutions for the superyacht market, has been on a recruitment drive to meet the changing needs of the business, with three new appointments. Simon Lewton has been appointed as stores manager, Mark Williams head buyer and Andreina Goncalves is the new general administrator.

Lewton’s background is in aviation, where he has had a successful career putting good stores management into practice. Since taking on the role, Lewton has already made some key changes which have increased the efficiency and stock levels, which ultimately has already proved beneficial to customers of OYS.

Williams, previously a senior buyer for healthcare products, brings his purchasing experience to the team. Working closely with Lewton, Williams is strengthening the relationships OYS has with its suppliers to ensure OYS continues to get the very best from its specialist supply chain.

“It’s been a very busy year at OYS – bringing on board Lewton, Williams and Goncalves has really helped us strengthen the team,” said Mark Barwell sales director for Ocean Yacht Systems. “Going into 2015 we already have a busy schedule, so having the right people in place is key.”
