IGY Marinas recently promoted three of its employees to lead regional operations around the world. Brian Deher has been promoted to regional director, marina operations and planning, Caribbean and Latin America; Gili Wojnowich has been named regional director, marina operations and planning, United States, Bahamas and South America; and Simon Bryan will serve as regional director, marina operations and planning, Europe.

“It brings me tremendous pleasure to announce our new directors for several important regions around the world,” said Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas.  “We consider the Caribbean, Latin America, the United States and Europe to be the most fruitful areas of opportunity for our growth strategy, and we are excited to see our success continue to build.”

Deher is the former director of marina operations and planning for IGY Marinas’ St. Maarten locations — Yacht Club at Isle de Sol and Simpson Bay Marina.  He began his career at IGY in 2005.

Wojnowich recently served as general manager for One Island Park-Miami Beach. Previously, he served as operations manager for the corporate office, providing direct support to the company’s executive team, assisting IGY’s facility general managers, and analyzing business development, marina management and acquisition opportunities. He has also been the general manager for several IGY marina locations, including The Montauk Yacht Club Resort & Marina in New York; Newport Yacht Club & Marina in New Jersey; and the company’s flagship superyacht facility, Marina at Yacht Haven Grande in St. Thomas.

Bryan served as general manager of Rodney Bay Marina in St. Lucia, where he was responsible for more than 250 slips, a fully serviced boatyard and the Upland retail space. He also opened North Cove Marina at Brookfield Place and oversaw the installation of new docks and infrastructure. During his tenure, the marina hosted an America’s World Series event and the Vendee Globe Ocean Masters. Additionally, Bryan was responsible for the operations of Newport Yacht Club and Marina in Jersey City and Montauk Yacht Club in the Hamptons.
