Merle Wood & Associates is proud to announce that Eric Lepeingle has joined the company as a sales broker based in Europe. After spending most of his youth on boats as an Olympic sailor, Eric got his start working in the yachting industry as a consultant to the Rodriguez Group, and soon after became one of their sales directors in the U.S.
We are very pleased to welcome Eric Lepeingle to our team of yachting experts, and are proud to bring aboard someone with the caliber of business and build experience with which he complements our company. - Merle Wood
In his nearly two decades of yachting experience, Eric also was the sales director for the Sunseeker Superyacht Division in France and collaborated with Wally Yachts in sales and business development. He has also acted as an intermediary between investors, financial institutions, and yachting companies.
Eric had sold and delivered approximately 2,000 feet of yachts between 2005 and 2011. During his time with the Rodriguez Group, he was responsible for selling most of the Leopard production line of 101’-151’ (31m-46m) vessels from 2006-2009.
Having never committed to a specific brokerage firm in the past, Eric was waiting for the right opportunity, and he saw it with Merle Wood & Associates. “I am very excited to have joined the team at Merle Wood & Associates, and look forward to many successes working alongside one of the most recognized names in yacht brokerage,” Eric said.
Merle Wood & Associates continues to grow globally, after having recently brought on Massimo Cicirello, a sales broker based in Italy.
