DiMillo's Yacht Sales

Hilary Pesarik-Thompson - Director of Marketing & Administration

Portland, ME, US

After growing up in Connecticut and then receiving my BA in Music from the State University of New York, I thought long and hard about what my next move should be; Maine (isn’t that the move most people would make to start their life?). I moved to Rockland, Maine, where I began my career in the boating industry at Back Cove Yachts. Originally hired as the sales assistant, I was soon brought down to their sister company, Sabre Yachts, to learn the role of Sales Coordinator for Back Cove Yachts. As Sales Coordinator, I traveled all over the country supporting the Back Cove dealer network and attending more boat shows than I can count. Through the midst of all of this, I met my husband, and decided it was time to settle down which is what brought me to DiMillo’s Yacht Sales. I joined the team at DiMillo’s in 2008 and my co-workers refer to me the “Office Mom.” I have dabbled in all of the aspects of DiMillo’s Yacht Sales from service to accounting, but my favorite role would have to be on the sales and marketing end. Not only do I get to be creative, but I have the opportunity to work directly with our customers throughout the sales process and ensure it is an exciting and positive experience for everyone involved.

When I am not focused on our customer’s boats or any type of organizational project, I am fortunate enough to cruise the Maine Coast with my husband, son, daughter & two dogs. My husband claims that I, like many of our customers, suffer from two-footitis and have to get a new boat every few years. In addition to boating, I love to garden at our home in South Freeport.
