VICE PRESIDENT OF SALES & MARKETING
CENTURION & SUPREME BOATS
Education: Some college
Years in the marine industry: 21
Other companies you have worked for in the marine industry and titles you held within those companies: Malibu Boats, Marketing Assistant; Skiers Choice, Marketing Director; Centurion & Supreme Boats, Marketing Director, then VP Sales & Marketing.
What are some of the biggest lessons you have learned working in the marine industry? It takes a village. I could never have this career without the support of my family and especially my husband, Glen. I travel a lot and I have two boys, Matthew and Daniel 13 and 10 years old. My husband and our family support me being gone with love and understanding. I have learned the lesson that that role is as important as my work. One does not exist without the other. I am thankful for that support more than anything else. We are all in the same boat. Pun intended.
I started out being very competitive and disliking my competitors. As I grew in my career and ultimately moved to different companies I learned that we are all in this together and while we can compete with one another I do not need disrespect or dislike anyone to get ahead. In fact I have gotten much farther in life by being appreciative to everyone no matter what brand they represent.
If you had to choose one memorable achievement in the marine industry, what would it be and why? It’s hard to pinpoint an achievement and take credit for it on my own. Everything I have done in the marine industry has been a team effort. The team has changed and even swung back again, but it is always a group effort. Perhaps one of the biggest accomplishments I have ever been a part of is this past year at Centurion & Supreme Boats. I was a part of one of the most successful water sports events in history, the 2018 Centurion World Wake Surfing Championship. We set out to be so ambitious with the goals of this event and amazingly enough we surpassed them all: 119 competitors, 17 World Titles, 43 Personal Bests, five new model releases, one dealer reveal, 100 boat demos and 20 boat sales with deposits. Amazing!
How do you hope to inspire other women in the marine industry? I hope to be a positive example to everyone, not just women. But women especially tend to be recognized for empowerment through tragedy way more often than empowerment thorough talent or simple positivity. Almost like women have to have something bad happen to them to be heard or to rise up. Women can succeed with positivity and their unique skill set. Every man and women has that in them. I hope to be an example of positive skills that any woman or man could possess to succeed.
What advice do you have for women starting their careers in the marine industry? Enjoy the ride. Stop worrying about the next step and do the work in front of you. That work well done will lead to more… both work and recognition. If you put your head down and do those things that no one else is willing to do and you do it better than anyone could have imagined; you will be remembered, rewarded and you will succeed.
