Brooks Marine Group (BMG) opens Newport office

Brooks Marine Group (BMG), has announced the opening of its Newport, Rhode Island office, effective 24 May 2010, a key date in Newport as the American Superyacht Forum takes place during the same week from 23-26 May. BMG adds the Newport location to its existing location in Wilmington, North Carolina and satellite office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The Newport office is located within the International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS). Core markets include New England and the Midwest while the Wilmington and Fort Lauderdale locations service BMG’s client companies in the Southeast and Northwest United States and growing global customer base throughout Europe, the Mideast, Far East and Australasia.

We’re noting a significant uptick in industry hiring,” says Neal Harrell, BMG’s principal. “With companies gearing up for recovery in 2010 and beyond, it’s important to us that BMG be represented in critical marine markets. Clearly, Newport is central to boating in New England and our presence at IYRS seems natural as their trades’ curriculum provides excellent training grounds for the future workforce in our industry. Not only can we match BMG candidates with clients, we will be able to access some of the best new talent available to the marine industry,” he says.

For nearly 10 years, Brooks Marine Group has excelled in recruiting mid-level managers and executive-level staff for OEM boat builders, shipyards, service and re-fit facilities, marinas, boat dealerships and marine industry suppliers. Searches include industry disciplines such as design and engineering, manufacturing management, sales and marketing, operations management, service management, project management, human resources, purchasing and finance.

BMG also owns and operates CareerBoat, the on-line job board dedicated to advertising employment opportunities in the marine industry. Career Boat’s “Job Flash”—an emailed bimonthly listing of the industry’s most sought after job offerings—features the opportunity for employers to list and candidates to access prized positions.

Specializing in the marine industry, Brooks Marine Group offers companies an unparalleled level of expertise in pairing the right candidate with the right company in the right job.
