James Maitland has assumed the newly created role of vice president of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, as of May 15. Maitland formerly served as national sales director at Oceanmax International. Before that, the Annapolis native worked for West Marine as port supply territory manager for nine years – first in the Maryland and northern Virginia area, then in southeast Florida, the company’s largest market.

Maitland was president of Young Professionals in Yachting from 2015 to 2018, and has been a member of the U.S. Superyacht Association board of directors, as well as a member of MIASF’s Marine Industry Day Committee. He also volunteers with the Freedom Waters Foundation, an organization that provides therapeutic boat experiences for veterans and others with special needs.

“My lifelong love of boating, which began on the Severn River and Chesapeake Bay, was easily transferred to the ocean and waterways of South Florida and I am thrilled to be in this new position to advance the work of the association,” Maitland stated in a MIASF press release.

MIASF is a not-for-profit trade group founded in 1961 to promote the South Florida marine industry. The association has more than 500 members in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties, and is the owner of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
