DALLAS – Safe Harbor Marinas held its first annual managers meeting in Ft. Worth, Texas, Feb. 22-24. The meeting brought together Safe Harbor’s corporate leadership and the general managers of its 31 properties to collaborate with one another, discuss industry trends and plan for the coming year. Officially launched in January, Safe Harbor Marinas is the nation’s largest owner and operator of marinas.
The event’s keynote speaker was Thom Dammrich, president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), the leading association representing the recreational boating industry in North America and the world’s largest producer of boat and sport shows. Along with his 35 years of experience in the recreational boating industry, Dammrich has led the Discover Boating campaign, a public awareness effort dedicated to increasing interest in recreational boating. Dammrich spoke to an audience of about 60 Safe Harbor employees about key industry trends, including an expected increase in sales across nearly all boat categories in 2016.
“As a new company, this was the perfect opportunity for Safe Harbor executives to not only meet with our managers, but also introduce the brand, discuss best practices, and lay out our exciting plans for the future,” said Marshall Funk, CEO of Safe Harbor Marinas. “In addition, having Thom Dammrich share his insights and talk about the initiatives NMMA has planned to help the industry continue to grow provided significant value to both our executive and management teams.”
