From Alinghi to TeamOrigin

From Alinghi to TeamOrigin

Monday May 31 2010 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

 Our congratulations to Sir Keith Mills on his appointment of Grant Simmer as the new CEO for TeamOrigin. Simmer, who has previously sailed with Ben Ainslie on Neville Crichton’s supermaxi Alfa Romeo, comes from running Alinghi with obviously two Cup wins under his belt with Bertarelli and a heritage in the America’s Cup dating back to 1983 when he was navigator on Australia II. Simmer has both the gravitas to run TeamOrigin but also the design know-how. This is perhaps the strongest message to date that the British team means business when it comes to the job of winning the 34th America’s Cup.
