I am fortunate to be a second generation marine industry veteran. My father, Richard, was a yacht broker and started his career working as a salesman at Yacht Haven East in Norwalk CT in 1962. Growing up on and around boats in my early years on Long Island Sound and the Connecticut River, I was enamored with the idea of someday following my father into the marine industry. One of eight, I was the only child in my family to pursue this passion of boating and quickly went to work learning everything I could about the business. My father was an excellent mentor, and so were many other people along the way. In my 35 years in the business, I have been fortunate to work for some great people and some great brands including companies like Boston Whaler, Powerquest Boats, Allied Richard Bertram Marine Group, Caribee Yacht Sales, Tiara Yachts, Hinckley Yachts, and Sunseeker International. Today, I run the Americas for Benetti and love waking up every day and going to "work". I am married to an amazing person, and I am the proud father of two grown up children, Megan who is 26, and Nicholas who is 24, and a toddler, Harrison, about to turn 2. There is nothing that I would rather be doing! See you on the water.
