25 years of business that will go on for many more years

I have been asked for a reference for Leticia Van Allen and her company ‘Van Allen Group Crew Placement’.

This I do with pleasure as it is very easy. I have known Leticia for 25 years and done business with her company even since she started it. I only have good things to say about her as a person, but also as a business. No BS, just good solid ethics and a get on with it attitude.

Our business relationship will go on for many years I am sure.

Personalised Service

I have known Leticia personally for many years and use her services often when crew recruitment issues come up.

All crewing agencies use computer data bases but Leticia adds a more personalised service than any of the others. She has met far more of the candidates than the other agents and she seems to really try and get crew and boats which actually "fit each other".

Having known Leticia Van Allen, and her most excellent international crew agency, Van Allen Group for close to twenty years, I can easily recommend her professional services. Based out of Palma de Mallorca, Leticia and her experienced staff do crew placement the 'old-fashioned' way, by carefully checking references, vetting candidates, and working closely with captain and owners to place the right candidates in the right jobs - that's the secret of her long success.
