Darina has got an exciting career experience, making her dreams come true in finance, Formula 1 and yachting industries.
Love for the sea came from early childhood which Darina has spent between Moscow and the Black Sea where her family used to have a house. Since then, she has been always dreaming to make it part of her life.
Darina has graduated from the Finance University in Moscow and started as a professional financial advisor in EY, moving forward to Accenture office in Milan. Being a passionate F1 fan, she has succeeded to become the Head of Commercial for the F1 Russian Grand Prix where she was in charge of sponsorship, Paddock Club, VIP hospitality and other income-generating areas. Being in touch with the luxury industry made it an easier transition to yachting.
She has joined the yachting industry in 2017 as a sales and charter broker for West Nautical and has arranged since then many successful charters. When it comes to sales, she is always keen to take a client to the yacht show or arrange a shipyard visit.
Darina loves to spend her free time travelling to the popular yacht destinations, skiing or playing tennis.
