The Association of Marina Industries announced that Marieke van Peer is the first woman to join its executive team and also highlighted the women working within the organization’s ranks.
Van Peer joined AMI earlier this year as treasurer. “AMI has always been very supportive of promoting women to the board, and I am honored to be the first female treasurer,” van Peer said in a statement. “I love this industry and being surrounded by so many brilliant people. I understand the value of speaking out and using your voice, and AMI is a fantastic way to do that.”
Seven of AMI’s 19 directors are women, and four women serve in key staff roles, according to the group.
