IGY to launch hospitality division  

ADVERTISEMENT

Fort Lauderdale-based IGY Marinas has announced plans to expand the company’s hospitality division following the recent promotion of Charles “Charlie” Irons to vice president of hospitality. Irons will be responsible for overseeing the division and will lead efforts to grow IGY Marinas’ hospitality pipeline, which includes its restaurant concept, Fat Turtle.  

Prior to joining IGY Marinas in 2013, Irons spent time with Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, and St. Regis, among others.

“It’s an exciting time for us at IGY Marinas, as we look to build our presence in the hotels, resorts, and restaurant space,” Irons stated in a news release. “We’ve proven that we can be successful in this area and believe that our breadth of knowledge in the maritime industry will mesh perfectly with more opportunities ashore.”

IGY Marinas’ plans for expansion follow the recent re-opening of Montauk Yacht Club Resort & Marina in the Hamptons. The company also provides support to two resort locations in Turks and Caicos and Panama, as both properties house an IGY Marinas facility.

Additionally, IGY Marinas has begun exploring a new hotel project in St. Thomas at The Marina at Yacht Haven Grande and will look at investment, management and development projects in other waterfront locations.  

“We’re expanding rapidly and believe that there are multiple ways for us to build our presence on land,” Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas, said in a statement.

IGY Marinas operates 15 marinas in seven countries and features one of the world’s largest vessel support networks, the IGY Anchor Club Strategic Partners. The company also recently announced its acquisition of One Island Park – Miami Beach and is undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation at Maximo Marina in St. Petersburg, Fla.
