Prior to joining the executive team at Emerald Coast Marine Center in 2017, Jeff Orbin enjoyed a highly successful career as a partner in a design and branding firm in St. Louis where he consulted on a variety of hospitality-based design projects. Prior to the merger, Jeff was actively engaged in a consulting capacity for the predecessor marina facility that eventually merged to create Emerald Coast Marine Center. Jeff transitioned from his former consulting role to a key leadership position overseeing Emerald Coast Marine Center’s marketing, advertising, customer relations and business development initiatives. As a passionate, lifelong boater who owned his first boat at the age of 18, Jeff has now parlayed his love and enthusiasm for the salt life with his well-rounded career skill set into a job he loves! An active sportsman, you can usually find Jeff enjoying his off-hours either boating or fishing on the local waterways or playing a round of golf or tennis. He’s a travel aficionado who also enjoys snow skiing in the off season.
