IGY Marinas announced that it has expanded its portfolio with the addition of Ortega Landing in Jacksonville, Fla. The new marina builds upon IGY’s growth strategy, as this will be its first facility in North Florida. Ortega Landing will join the company’s lineup of international marina destinations as the third facility in the Sunshine State, following One Island Park – Miami Beach and Maximo Marina – St. Petersburg.
“IGY Marinas has always placed Florida at the top of our marina expansion list, as several areas of the destination continue to be the most sought-after boating communities. Jacksonville, and in particular Ortega Landing, is a terrific complement to our dynamic and growing marina destination portfolio, and we look forward to expanding our award-winning services to an even wider market – with more to come,” said Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas.
IGY has appointed Cam Melangton as Ortega Landing’s new general manager. An industry veteran with more than 25 years of experience, Melangton’s career encompasses the management of sales, marketing, media, financials, business development, client relations, entertainment, hospitality, travel programs and event operations for Fortune 500 companies and marina management for exclusive yacht clubs. Prior to joining IGY, he served as the marina manager and dock master for Pasadena Yacht and Country Club.
As part of the integration process, IGY will begin implementing the company’s services and operations. IGY will also leverage existing relationships within its network of commercial and industry partners, host special events and conduct community outreach initiatives through the company’s philanthropic arm – Inspire Giving through You.
