Westrec Marinas announces personnel move

Westrec Marinas said Travis Staats was promoted to real estate manager at the Camachee Island Co. in St. Augustine, Fla.

The company said Staats is responsible for managing the commercial and retail tenants at the marina, as well as the water plant and overall infrastructure on the island.

He has worked at the Camachee Cover Yacht Harbor Marina and been a part of the leadership team for more than nine years. He has a degree in sports management from Flagler College and holds a Florida Class C operator’s license in drinking water plant management.

He also has been an entrepreneur in property management services. Westrec said Staats’ experience will be a great asset in building the community of businesses supporting the marina and spearheading a revitalization of the property’s infrastructure.

“The Camachee management team is working hard to upgrade and renew the facilities while delivering on the excellent customer service that has been a hallmark of the Camachee Island philosophy for many years,” Westrec vice president Jim Frye said in a statement. “Travis’ experience and skill set are well suited to this new position at Camachee.”

Westrec Marina management has been working with the staff at Camachee Island, assisting in the management transition.

“We’re enjoying the renewal of this landmark marina; the creation of this new focus area is fundamental in delivering a quality product and experience to the patrons of the Camachee Island business community. Travis will lead this revitalization,” Frye said.
