SUNSEEKER International is parting company with its chief financial officer and chief operations officer in a shake-up of its top management team.

The Poole-based luxury boat builder has been consulting over 460 job losses, amounting to a fifth of its workforce, in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown.

Sunseeker said chief financial officer Mike McMillan and chief operations officer Michael Straughan would both be leaving but would remain in the company during the transition.

Timon Orlob, who is currently operations director, will take over as chief operations officer. He has been with the company for four years.

Jason Stewart, director of commercial finance, and Dean Lawler, director of controlling and financial planning and analysis (FPA), will take positions on the executive committee.

Mr Stewart has worked at Sunseeker for 10 years, mostly in finance but also as customer services director and director of IT.

Mr Lawler has worked with Sunseeker for five years, originally as head of commercial finance.

Mike Wheeler, a former senior partner at KPMG who has been a non-executive director at Sunseeker since 2015, will have oversight of the finance function.

A Sunseeker statement said Andrea Frabetti would continue as chief executive “with his vast experience working within the marine industry for over 30 years”.

The changes mean the executive team consists of: Andrea Frabetti, chief executive; Timon Orlob, chief operations officer; Adrian Powell, general counsel and company secretary; Sean Robertson, sales and marketing director; Sian Dodds, human resources director; Ewen Foster, chief technology officer; Jason Stewart, director of commercial finance; Dean Lawler, director of controlling and FPA; Francesco Frediani, superyacht and dealer network director.
