MarineMax Vacations said Laura Greces was named general manager of the company’s charter base in Tortola, British Virgin Islands.

The company said Greces has more than 30 years of experience in the charter industry. She entered the industry as chef/first mate aboard a 50-foot crewed yacht and transitioned to operations as general manager of Mexico operations for The Moorings, followed by director of crewed operations in Tortola.

She has lived in Tortola for more than 26 years.

“Bringing Laura to the team with her all-encompassing experience fulfills a significant role for the charter division’s growth and expansion plans,” MarineMax Vacations vice president Raul Bermudez said in a statement.

“Her previous responsibilities, not only as a crewmember but also managing crewed yacht charters of 50-foot-plus boats and general operations manager, created a solid foundation for her career and for our team’s growing needs.”
