“Jonathan is experienced in the development of marinas and we are confident that he will bring with him a wealth of knowledge as well as a passion for this industry. Hailing from the East Coast of Australia with its world class marinas Jonathan’s understanding of what IGY has set out to achieve in the UAE and Europe is something that he can relate to and join us in accomplishing.”

Jonathan Crowe, newly appointed in his role as Director of Development for the Middle East and Europe at IGY said:

“No where in the world is the marina industry seeing such an increase of berths and the launch of so many developments. Leading the team of developers at IGY is a hugely exciting opportunity for me and I look forward to working with them to achieve the goals that have been set out.”
