Wayne is originally from San Francisco but was lucky enough to move with his family to Fort Lauderdale as a teenager when the town was small and the perfect place for boats, the ocean, beaches and fun. After education and military service Wayne married and moved to Chicago trading in his Bermuda shorts for suits and ties and the corporate world of sales and marketing. The next twenty years brought success and lots of travel. Beginning as a sales trainee Wayne worked his way up the ladder and ultimately was responsible for company operations in Atlanta, Houston and then back to his roots in San Francisco.
Combining his work experience with a life-long love of boats Wayne then moved to San Diego and pioneered a new line of boats – Beneteau. Over the next thirty years many opportunities became available and business was both profitable and fun. Sea Trials were much better than boardrooms! Wayne began a partnership with the custom yacht builder Knight & Carver then founded Southwestern Yacht Sales opening three offices and was the top Beneteau dealership in the United States in 2000. After this Wayne sold Southwestern and joined West Bay Sonship as a Regional Vice-President. Most recently Wayne was the exclusive dealer for Selene Ocean Trawlers covering the Southwest United States. During the years spent as a new boat dealer and as a broker Wayne was licensed and bonded in California and Florida and enjoyed helping clients on both the West Coast and the East Coast and from Canada to Tahiti.
