Published

on

Keegan Weidmann is an entrepreneur who owns and manages the internationally recognized superyacht recruitment company, Seven Seas Recruitment. With his main office in London, Keegan resides in the South of France and manages business relations on an international level.

He has worked for billionaires on some of the world’s most luxurious superyachts and his knowledge of the superyacht industry is summarised into a brand that he passionately shares with the rest of the world. Keegan specializes in connecting some of the most luxurious and prestigious superyachts in the world with aspiring superyacht crew who plan to embark on an exciting life at sea. 

How Keegan Got Started

Keegan has an undying passion for the superyacht industry, explaining that his key to success is a deep desire to make a significant difference in everything he does. Additionally, he has drawn a lot of inspiration from the rich and wealthy that he has been fortunate enough to have worked for in the past. He works in an extremely niche industry that demands quality, class, and innovation. 

Growing up in South Africa, Keegan quickly grew fond of the ocean and the opportunities that surrounded it, and it was during these early years that Keegan’s entrepreneurial spirit was stimulated. Today, together with his business partner, Molly England, Keegan manages a team of international recruitment specialists in areas such as the South of France, the UK, South Africa, and beyond. 

Seven Seas Recruitment

Seven Seas Recruitment is an International Superyacht Recruitment Company comprised of recruitment specialists with industry experience who are strategically located in the superyacht hubs of the world. The company provides professional crewing services both traditionally and digitally to superyachts of all sizes, both private and charter, sail and power. 

“Our services are here to solve the ever-growing problem of superyacht crew retention, Keegan says. “Seven Seas Recruitment is large enough to deliver, yet small enough to care. We offer a personable yet professional take on modern-day recruitment, both traditionally and digitally, operating 24/7 in almost every time zone. “

Keegan’s company is built on a set of unrivaled morals and values that contribute to a positive company culture. According to Keegan, the most important attribute from a company culture perspective is complete transparency, based on meaningful insights that create trust with senior leaders to create a safe and trustworthy environment where people offer honest and direct feedback.

Going Crypto

Seven Seas Recruitment is constantly looking at ways to expand and stay ahead of the game. Recently, the company announced that they accept most forms of cryptocurrency as payment, making them the first, if not the only superyacht recruitment company in the superyacht market to accept crypto as a form of payment for their services.

“Superyacht ownership is slowly appealing to a younger generation, and Seven Seas Recruitment has the interests of the younger generation at the forefront of our daily operations to ensure a timeous, seamless process that makes the overall experience of owning a superyacht that much easier”, Keegan explains.

“We aim to appeal to the younger clientele that is now currently entering the superyacht industry. The landscape is ever-changing, and we plan to change with it”, Keegan says.

Keegan is an example of a passionate, forward-thinking entrepreneur who only has the best interests of his industry and team in mind.
