MARINEMAX SARASOTA MARINA MANAGER NAMED TO WOMEN MAKING WAVES CLASS OF 2022
CLEARWATER, FL (July 5, 2022) – Heather Mess, MarineMax Sarasota Marina Manager was recently named to Boating Industry’s 2022 Women Making Waves featured in the launch of their summer issue. Heather stood out among more than 120 nominations submitted for the annual program which recognizes women in the recreational boating industry who make contributions to its success, propel its growth, and lead their organizations and peers into the future.
“I am truly humbled to be nominated and awarded this recognition. Dedication and hard work do pay off. It is inspiring to work in an industry amongst others who are passionate about what they do," says Heather.
Heather oversees the MarineMax Sarasota Marina Membership Experience, focused on anticipating client needs before they ask and implementing additional services to help take care of their boat—freeing up more time to enjoy the water. She was integral in overseeing the multi-million-dollar remodel project which now allows for much larger boats to be sold and stored. Her efforts assisted the MarineMax Sarasota location by adding a member’s lounge and acquiring larger marina forklifts and dry stack racks that can accommodate boats up to 42 feet. With the influx of new boaters in the past couple of years, efficient storage facilities have been in high demand and Heather has proven to provide that and more with her additions to the customers.
Jason LeFevre, MarineMax Sarasota General Manager comments, “Heather has been a phenomenal addition to the Sarasota Team. Her growth from a part-time sales assistant to running one of the company’s most successful marinas has been a joy to watch.”
