Voirrey Coole is a director of Knox House Marine & Aviation (a branded division of Knox House Trust), and is responsible for overseeing corporate services provision for yacht and aircraft owners. Clients – including UHNWs, non-doms, and family offices – come from all corners of the world. ‘We aim to help clients navigate the complexities of yacht and aircraft ownership through the provision of a comprehensive array of bespoke services,’ Coole explains.
Knox House Marine & Aviation’s offering includes the execution of ownership structuring, company management and administration, international yacht and aircraft registrations, yacht management and EU importations. ‘Our services are designed to reduce the administrative burden while maximising the benefits of ownership,’ she says.
Coole’s approach is centred around her clients’ needs. ‘Being part of a small team, we get to really know our clients, and their ever-changing needs keep us on our toes. We remain adaptive and flexible, which ensures we can be more creative in our ways of thinking and working.’
Coole played a pivotal role in shaping the strategic vision and goals when she joined the business in 2017. She continues with this role today, and was recently appointed to its board in 2019. But the dedicated adviser is not one to rest on her laurels. She recently completed the Institute of Directors (IoD) Certificate in Company Direction. Her professional development has no doubt had a positive influence on her company’s client services. ‘It’s enabled me to share my learning with the wider teams in order to continue to challenge the status quo and seek out the very best for our clients,’ she says.
Her team has won several accolades for its service in recent years, the most significant one being the Best Aircraft and Yacht Corporate Services Provider award, which the firm won for the fourth consecutive year in 2020.
Outside work, Coole is deeply involved with a number of local charities. The cause closest to her heart is fundraising for The Children’s Centre, which Knox House Trust have long supported, undertaking additional fundraising activities to support families during the Covid-19 pandemic.
