MarineMax named Jack Ezzell general manager at MarineMax Clearwater in Florida.

The company said the Clearwater store is a perennially high-performance prime location and one of the original stores that formed MarineMax.

Ezzell started his career with MarineMax as a controller in 1998 and was consistently promoted, including to chief accounting officer in 2003. In 2010 he went to work for Masonite International, a manufacturer of interior and exterior door systems, as its chief accounting officer.

“Jack’s leadership and intimate knowledge of the MarineMax operation, combined with his strong financial acumen, makes him a tremendous asset to us,” MarineMax regional president Kyle Langbehn said in a statement. “We are fortunate to have someone of his caliber and experience onboard that also understands our company and our values so well.”

“I am thrilled to be back at MarineMax,” Ezzell said. “My family and I have lived in the Clearwater area for more than 20 years. Together with my wife, Shannon, and our four children, we are all avid boaters and have the H2O gene deeply implanted in our DNA. I feel fortunate to be heading up such a great MarineMax store with a fabulous team.”
