Ben launched his marine industry career in 2002 as a lot porter, supporting a busy marina venue. His hard work and dedication led to new opportunities as he learned all aspects of marina operations and earned multiple certifications, a 6-pack captain’s license and several top employee recognitions. His career has encompassed everything from dockhand duties to becoming a skilled forklift operator, to assuming major responsibilities in operations prior to becoming a key leader on the marina management team. Today, Ben thrives and thoroughly enjoys his work as a service advisor, combining his lengthy experience and skills to benefit and best support Emerald Coast Marine Group service customers. When he’s not onsite assisting customers, Ben can usually be found enjoying the great outdoors with his wife, kids and two dogs.
