Changing Places


Bruce Staley recently joined Waterfront Marine in Edgewater, Md., as a sales consultant and yacht broker.


Staley has an extensive background in new- and used-boat sales, including outboard-powered fishing boats, cruising boats and trawlers.

"We are very excited to have Bruce as part of our team," store manager Ed Culp said in a statement. "His vast knowledge of both new and used powerboats is sure to provide our clients with the best customer service possible. Bruce is a real professional."

Waterfront Marine is a Chaparral and Robalo dealer.

The Marine Industries Association of South Florida announced it's reorganizing to improve efficiency and effectiveness and will lose two key employees in Helen Wozunk and Gordon Connell.

Wozunk, director of membership sales, has been with the association for seven years and will be moving into the private sector of the marine industry, executive director Carlos Vidueira said.

After nearly 11 years of service, director of association services Gordon Connell is also leaving.

"We are positive that both Helen and Gordon will have continued success in whatever ventures and opportunities they may seek and it is with great respect and admiration that we see them off today into the next phase of their careers," Vidueira said in a statement.
