Show Management, producers of major boat shows in the United States, including the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show®, the world’s largest, has promoted Andrew Doole and Dane Graziano to Chief Operating Officers.
Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist III, President and CEO of Show Management made the announcement.
“Clearly, the combined efforts, experience and know-how of Andrew and Dane for over 24 years (each) have been key components to the great success and growth of this company,” said Zimbalist. “There is no doubt that their vision and strategic planning will take Show Management to greater heights, and at the same time provide needed support for the marine industry.”
Doole’s and Graziano’s combined responsibilities for running the business operations cover a broad spectrum. They oversee and manage all aspects of every show, encompassing Show Management concessions, electrical, decorating services, government relations, sales and marketing, exhibitor relations, show expansion and industry relations. In addition to the boat shows, they are also involved in special events produced by Show Management.
As Chief Operating Officers, both report directly to Efrem Zimbalist III, CEO, as does Ricardo Strul, Chief Financial Officer.
