Marina Industries Association CEO to depart
The Marina Industries Association (MIA) has commenced the process leading to a new CEO being appointed, after the departure CEO Colin Bransgrove this year.
Mr Bransgrove said with 12 years in the role it will be time for change to ensure the momentum of the past decade continues.
“It will remain a privilege until my last day of service to be part of a great and progressive industry. MIA has a membership committed to their Association. MIA is directed by a long-standing volunteer Chairman and Board passionate about the valuable role marinas and yacht clubs can play within their local communities.”
MIA Chairman Andrew Chapman said the Association is indebted to Mr Bransgrove for the role he has played in leading MIA through a period of sustained growth.
”During Colins time as MIA’s first and only CEO, the Association’s membership has more than doubled to over 300 and the number of education and training activities has increased four-fold. Colin has been and remains a ‘steady hand at the wheel’. He has a strong belief in the important role Associations play in supporting and adding value to members businesses and to their professional growth. MIA’s last international conference and trade exhibition, for example, was voted by members as the best-ever and Colin played a key role in ensuring its success. It is typical of his dedication to the Association that he has enabled MIA to have a gradual and what we anticipate will be a smooth leadership transition.”
The CEO position is now being advertised and will be open until mid-February.
