MIAMI, March 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Boatim Inc. (OTCQB: BTIM), a data-driven, digital marketplace for buying and selling boats and yachts anywhere in the world, today announces appointment of its new Florida based CFO: Mr. Mario Beckles, CPA, was appointed as a member of the board of Directors of the Company effective immediately and as new Chief Financial Officer commencing on April 1, 2021.
Mr. Beckles has over 20 years of experience in financial reporting, financial accounting, tax and audit works. He is US based (FL) and his areas of expertise include, inter alia, information technology and retail. He began his career as a Senior Auditor with Deloitte and has since held positions as CFO of First Liberty Power Corp, a publicly traded mining company, was a Partner at Jersey Fortress Capital Partners, a boutique investment banking firm and was a Senior Financial Reporting Analyst with SimplexGrinnell, a $2B Fire & Security Contractor. Mario is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and holds a CPA license with the state board of Florida.
Mario replaces Boatim Inc.´s prior CFO, Mr. Benjamin L. Salter: "Being European based and facing continuing international travel restrictions, and in view of Boatim's focus on strongly scaling its US market presence, we collectively felt this role would be better performed from within the US." says Salter. New director Beckles adds: "With major steps already taken, I look forward to ensure the necessary frequent alignment with Boatim´s growing number of US-based counterparties and service providers, especially those major firms we are in touch with to launch our online boat insurance and financing features."
Wolfgang Tippner, Boatim´s CEO sums it up: "I´m glad we found this solution. With Mario we have a very qualified local person in our C-level team now to control that US ramp up. And at the same time Ben can fully focus on strategic business development and operations in Europe. So, stay tuned to watch Boatim Inc. for the upcoming boating season!"
