JOHN COWPE

TMG Managing Director

Entrepreneur John Cowpe was born to be on the water. Growing up on the west coast of Scotland in the town of Fairlie, famous for Fife Yachts, it’s only fitting really that John’s career has seen him sail yachts around the world, working and living his dream.

John’s earliest memories revolve around the sea and family holidays on small boats, and as he grew up he took up windsurfing, dinghy sailing, racing and working within the industry.

Seeing all aspects of the sport from cruising to racing to moving from country to country, for me really drove home how multi-faceted it is as an activity,” says John. Read more

JOE FOX

Sales and Service Support

Joe Fox is uniquely positioned to be in Service and Support at TMG. Growing up sailing dinghies and small catamarans, his love of the water and the marine industry saw him complete a degree in Navigation and Maritime Science at Plymouth University.

He has worked around the Mediterranean and the Caribbean for many years as a skipper on catamarans – week long charters in Croatia, Greece and Bermuda were an incredible way to live out his passion.

A non-seasonal, shore-based role and an Australian partner lead to a move down under for Joe, and TMG now benefits from his professionalism, extensive sailing experience and strong customer service ethic.

Joe has skippered many a Lagoon in his time, his knowledge of the brand a great advantage for TMG’s clients.
