Industry Veteran to Continue Supporting Company’s Growth from St. Maarten


Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – IGY Marinas today announced the promotion of Brian Deher to regional director: marina operations and planning, Caribbean and Latin America. A St. Maarten local and seasoned maritime industry veteran, Deher is the former director of marina operations and planning for IGY Marinas’ SXM locations – Yacht Club at Isle de Sol and Simpson Bay Marina.


“It brings me tremendous pleasure to announce Brian’s new role for several important regions around the world,” said Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas.  “We consider the Caribbean and Latin America to be the most fruitful areas of opportunity for our growth strategy, and we are excited to see our success continue to build.”

Continuing to support IGY’s growth from St. Maarten, Brian Deher (pictured above) will now help transition additional Caribbean and Latin American marinas into the company’s portfolio.  Additionally, Deher will implement IGY Marinas branding and operational standards and will oversee the management at each regional property.  His knowledge will be sourced to assist with prospective planning for potential retail and leasing space, F&B operations and renovations.


Deher’s promotion will help IGY Marinas continue its robust growth in key regions.  With a diverse collection of 15 luxury yachting destinations in seven countries, the company recently transitioned its marketing partnership at Red Frog Beach Marina to an ownership/management agreement, and has partnered with innovative boating service application, Boatyard, to expand its value-added customer offerings.


A supporter of the local St. Maarten community, the company’s Yacht Club at Isle de Sol and Simpson Bay Marina participate in several events throughout the year, including the Triple Crown Poker Run scheduled for this weekend, on July 16, as well as its annual Inspire Giving through You philanthropic initiative.
