Triton founder honored for caring

ADVERTISEMENT

The Triton’s David Reed was honored with one of the U.S. Superyacht Association’s top awards yesterday for his efforts to help those less fortunate in our community.

Reed was awarded the Beacon Award for his work to raise money and create programs for South Florida children and families through the Spin-A-Thon and creation of the Marine Industry Cares Foundation. The organization has raised more than $750,000 in eight years for organizations such as Kids in Distress and the Children’s Diagnostic and Treatment Center, and for programs such as MICF’s marine summer camp.

“We are all so busy with jobs and family that it’s hard to think about others outside yourself,” Kitty McGowan, manager of the USSA, said in announcing the award. “But that’s all he does, and he’s the busiest person I know.”

Reed was publisher of The Triton for 12 years, and remains chairman of its parent company, Triton Publishing Group, one of the founders of the U.S. Superyacht Association in 2006.

    David is the man! He gets the job done and is one of the coolest bosses I’ve ever had. He truly is a caring person and always tries to help everyone. David really deserves this recognition for his hard work with the Marine Industry Cares Foundation. He has made great strides and helped a lot of people in need. Way to go, David!!
