Marieke van Peer has been named regional manager of the east coast of Florida for Suntex Marina Investors. Van Peer will be in charge of most of the Florida Loggerhead marinas acquired by the company in May. She will manage Palm Beach Gardens, Hollywood, South Lantana, Aventura, Vero Beach, Jupiter, Riviera Beach, Lantana and South Miami.

Van Peer was most recently marina manager for Island Gardens Deep Harbour marina in Miami and previously marina manager at Miami Beach Marina. She has also managed the Bahia Mar Yachting Center in Fort Lauderdale.

“We’re bringing the marinas up to the next level with customer service,” van Peer said. “Our goals include streamlining systems, renovations, expanding a couple of marinas, fixing slips, and some major facelifts. It’s exciting.”

She received her GCSE from Oxford Cambridge and is certified as a marina manager and she is a member of the board of directors of the Marina Industries Association South Florida.

“Marieke is a welcome addition to our management team,” said Ron TenEyck, vice president of operations, Suntex Marinas, in a press release. “We are constantly trying to gain fresh insight in how to improve the experience for our members. With her incredible background, hands on knowledge of the inner workings of marinas and membership of the Marina Industries Association board of directors, she will give us a valuable fresh perspective. We are eager for a long and prosperous partnership.”
