MarineMax has promoted Larry Russo Jr. to regional president of the Northeast (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York) and Alex Russo to general manager of all MarineMax Russo stores.
“Since Russo Marine joined our family in May of 2016 Larry has grown and proven himself to be an important contributor to MarineMax,” Brett McGill, chief operating officer at MarineMax, said in a statement.
Larry Russo Jr. grew up in the marine industry, working at his family’s boat dealership, previously known as Russo Marine. He worked in all facets of the boating business — in the yard, service, parts, sales, accounting and management. He graduated from Merrimack College with a degree in finance and economics.
Alex Russo also grew up in the family dealership. He started out washing boats and painting bottoms and continued to learn the business, advancing from parts manager to operations manager, and now general manager. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts Lowell with a degree in business and marketing.
