MarineMax has two new GMs


Clearwater, Florida-based yacht retailer MarineMax has two new general managers: Tyler Layton and Cary Smart.

Layton is now general manager at the Pompano Yacht Center in Florida. He joined MarineMax in 2016 as a business manager in Clearwater and was later promoted to general manager of the company’s Wrightsville Beach site in North Carolina. He was previously a finance manager with car dealerships, and is an Army veteran who continues to serve in the reserves. 

Smart is taking over Layton’s former role as the general manager in Wrightsville Beach. He spent summers as a child boating on the shores of Kennebunkport, Maine, and he and his family have owned two Boston Whalers. After attending college in Portland, he moved to the Sarasota area, where he worked in the high-end car industry.
