MarineMax has named industry veteran Christian Gonzalez as general manager for its Miami stores. He will be directing the MarinaMax Miami dealership and the new location at Miami Beach Marina.

“I have been a boater my entire life,” said Gonzalez in a statement. “I learned to appreciate and respect the water from my father who owned and operated a marina on the Miami River. My uncles were marine technicians and taught me marine mechanics while my father instilled the importance of customer satisfaction.”

In 2001, Gonzalez joined MarineMax in the service department. He was promoted to assistance service manager and then he moved to the sales side. In 2012, he moved over to sales manager at Intrepid Yachts and was promoted to vice president of sales.

Gonzalez is married to wife Cecie and has two kids, Olivia and Julian. The family enjoys spending time in the Bahamas and Gonzalez enjoys tinkering with classic cars.
