"I look forward to growing and strengthening operations on the North Yard." – Gilius Grutterink
The North and South Yards at RMK Merrill-Stevens continue to develop after undergoing major renovations over the past few years. A large part of that development is the growth of each team. The RMK MS Marketing team recently spoke with Gilius Grutterink, who is one of several exciting new members of the RMK MS North team.
Gilius recently moved to Miami from the Netherlands to be with his family. After settling in, Gilius officially joined RMK MS in May 2021. Due to a large increase in business over the past year at the yard, Gilius got right to work after joining the team. "I was off to a flying start with a full yard and back-to-back launches," says Gilius. Gilius is already making a big impact at the RMK MS North Yard and becoming a valuable member of the team.
"I am very excited to have found a company where I can use my past experiences and get back into the maritime sector," says Gilius. "The maritime sector has always been very interesting to me," he continues. Glilius has years of experience in project management and joined the RMK MS team as a Project Manager. He formerly worked on a crew on large vessels and worked for a Netherlands-based company that builds large exhibitions in the automotive sector for brands including Audi, VW, Lamborghini, Bugatti, and Porsche.
Gilius will have his hands full during the remainder of boating season as the North Yard handles refits, repairs, maintenance, and service for a wide variety of yachts and superyachts.
