Dometic America’s former President Frank Marciano accepted the 2017 Alan J. Freedman Memorial Leadership Award during Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show’s Innovation Breakfast on Friday.
This honorable award recognized Marciano for his outstanding contributions to the marine accessories industry, as well as, his leadership, creativity and personal motivation.
“I am so honored to receive this prestigious award from the NMMA,” said Frank Marciano. “I love boating and have enjoyed the privilege of adding value to the industry for almost 26 years.”
Frank Marciano started with Marine Air Systems in 1991 as the production manager. Under his leadership, the factory was divided into eight self-directed teams, which in turn worked directly with the sales team to satisfy customers.
He participated with the ABYC standards committee for Marine Air Conditioning, assisted in teaching classes and, along with several industry partners, created the ABYC Marine Certified AC Technician program. During his tenure, Marciano served on the NMMA Accessory Board from 2011 to 2014 and NMMA’s main board from 2012 to 2014. He has supported the MIASF, ABYC and the MLA.
Frank’s main priority has always been bringing value to customers and exceeding their expectations.
Thom Dammrich, NMMA president, congratulated him noting, “Frank Marciano’s attention to detail and commitment to marine product excellence and customer service have helped paved the way for marine manufacturing’s growth and innovation. The NMMA congratulates Frank on his exemplary work in the recreational boating industry and is proud to bestow upon him the Alan J. Freedman Award.”
