Changing Places

Coastal Properties Management of Annapolis named Paul Gapcynski the new manager of Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown, Va.

Gapcynski has worked at Riverwalk as dockmaster since May 2005. Following the death of the previous manager, Dennis Nate, last September, Gapcynski was promoted to the management position.

“We were all very saddened to lose Dennis Nate, who was a well-known boater and popular manager at Riverwalk for years,” said Bruce Wagner, vice president of operations for Coastal Properties. “Paul has been able to step in and make the transition to manager very efficiently.”

Gapcynski is local to the Yorktown area and has been around boats all his life. He holds a Bachelor of Science and an MBA from College of William & Mary and has worked in the marine science field as well as environmental management and civil service as an environmental program manager for the U.S. Air Force.
