IYBA honors Smith, Brody as brokers of the year

ADVERTISEMENT

The International Yacht Brokers Association named Gary Smith as its Yacht Broker of the Year.

Smith, (middle photo, below) president of SYS Yacht Sales, is a past president of the member-driven association, and stepped in recently to fill the term of Paul Flannery, who resigned as president last year to become the group’s executive director. A board member for 10 years, Smith has personally flown rescue missions to the Caribbean after the hurricanes there in 2017.

Camper & Nicholsons broker Diana Brody was named IYBA’s Charter Broker of the Year. Brody (third photo, below) started her yachting career in the 1980s as a cook onboard, then obtained her captains license before joining industry pioneer Ed Sacks of The Sacks Group. She has been with CNI for 26 years.

The association also named two new members to its board of directors: Kristen Klein of Northrop & Johnson (first photo, below), and Trevor Carroll of Fraser. Both will serve two-year terms.
