ABYC names assistant director of education

The American Boat & Yacht Council has promoted David Broadbent to assistant director of education. He will manage ABYC’s educational courses and work on developing new education programs to serve the marine industry.

“Dave is exactly the type of person we need in this new position,” said Ed Sherman, ABYC vice president of education, in a statement. “With his technical background, sales experience and, let’s not forget military service, Dave will surely exceed all of our expectations. We all look forward to working with him in this new capacity.’

Broadbent previously served as the technical standards specialist where he helped develop ABYC standards and managed ABYC’s project technical committees.

“I am excited to take on this new challenging role in our education department,” said Broadbent. “Our education programs are second to none and it is truly an honor to have the opportunity to continue ABYC’s legacy as the leader in marine-industry certification and training programs.”
