MarineMax said it promoted Matthew Cini to general manager of its New York stores in Lindenhurst, Copiague, Chelsea Pier and Huntington.

He will represent MarineMax at the New York Boat Show, which opens Wednesday and will continue through Sunday.

“Matt has done a great job reshaping, refining and growing the operations at our Brick and Channel Club stores,” Larry Russo Jr., regional president of MarineMax, said in a statement. “His talents will be a wonderful addition in unifying the leadership across our New York stores.”

Cini grew up on Long Island Sound and spent summers on the water. He took a job in commercial fishing and moved into lifeguarding while attending Trinity College. After graduation, he took a brief hiatus from working on the water and worked in politics and founded a small newspaper in southeastern Connecticut.

He maintained his connection to the water through rowing, competing as a master rower, and then coached for many years at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn.

In 2005 he returned to the marine industry, working with the Bassett Boat Co. in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. After four years at Bassett he became general manager of MarineMax in Brick, N.J.

“I’m looking forward to expanding my role with MarineMax and supporting my team in the goal of providing the very best service to our customers,” Cini said.
