Yacht Accounts Manager
Chad was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. There he attended UNC Charlotte where he earned a degree in finance with a concentration in accounting.
In 2014 he decided to relocate to sunny Fort Lauderdale to enjoy the year-round beautiful weather and beaches. Chad was introduced to the marine industry through Liquid Yacht Wear. As an account representative, he helped captains, stewardesses and owners with selection and purchasing of crew uniforms, accommodating set budgets, purchase ordering and invoicing.
During his time there, he was also given the opportunity to travel to Antibes, France for 10 weeks where he assisted the newer Liquid location during its busy season. While abroad, Chad familiarized himself with the European markets for yachting in France, Spain and Monaco; gaining a more well-rounded view of the world-wide yachting community.
The blend of Chad’s education and background in the marine industry organically led him to join the team at Fairport Support in 2017, as Yacht Accounts Manager.
In his free time, Chad enjoys listening to country music, skiing, traveling, and trying out new restaurants where he orders the spiciest dish on the menu!”
