Clearwater, Florida-based boat retailer MarineMax has announced new management at four of its stores in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. 

Blake Phillips has been promoted to general manager and will also retain his sales manager role, according to Larry Russo Jr., MarineMax regional president. Also, Nick Schwidder has been promoted to operations manager, responsible for service, parts and marina operations.

In the past year, MarineMax has undertaken a consolidation and improvement plan for the region. As part of this project, MarineMax Boston, located in Quincy, Massachusetts, acquired Bay Pointe Marina, with a new sales center that has been operational for several months, and service, marina, parts and finance offices ready for business. 

MarineMax Wakefield, in Rhode Island, has been busy stocking expanded inventory options and hiring additional staff to support its sales, service and finance business. 

MarineMax Newport has also been hiring more sales staff and concierge service personnel to support growth. All four regional stores, including MarineMax Danvers, in Massachusetts, are retail sites for the following brands: Boston Whaler, Sea Ray, Sailfish, Aquila, Aviara, Azimut, Galeon, and Ocean Alexander.
