Denison Yachting adds personnel and office

Denison Yachting hired events manager Keara Bell and lead graphic designer Laura Botu. The firm also opened an office at Twin Dolphin Marina in Bradenton, Fla.

Bell will oversee Denison-related events, including boat shows, rendezvous and open houses. Botu will manage company branding and graphics.

Brokers Gregg Sommerville and Josh Olsen will be based in the new office, which has slips and a pool, plus the Pier 22 restaurant.

Bell and Botu “bring a high level of experience and knowledge that will allow us to continue building the brand and expanding the company’s reach,” Ben Farnborough, director of marketing for Denison Yachting, said in a statement. “The new Bradenton office is also a key addition for growth, as it will anchor our sales initiatives along the West Coast of Florida.”

Denison has 22 staffed by about 100 brokers.
