Changing Places


Miles David moved from brokerage yacht sales to sales director for new Hinckley power- and sailing yachts in the Portsmouth, R.I., office.

David joined Hinckley in 2003 as event manager for the marketing department. In addition to managing logistics for Hinckley events and boat shows, he managed the Hinckley demonstration fleet - a six-yacht fleet that moved around the country during the year.

In the fall of 2005 David opened the Hinckley Yacht Brokerage office as a broker. He has since worked with more than 70 clients on boat purchases.

David is a graduate of the University of Denver.

Yachting magazine announced three changes to its editorial staff.

Mary South was promoted to deputy editor, seasoned marine journalist Dennis Caprio returned to the watercraft title to fill the vacant senior editor position and associate editor Chris White was promoted to managing editor.

"These moves strengthen Yachting's ability to achieve our mission of enhancing the experience of the serious boater across multiple platforms," editor-in-chief George Sass Jr. said in a statement.

South, a published author and editorial veteran, will play a key role in content and writer development, strategic planning and cross-platform story extensions. She also will continue to produce features, two of which recently won national awards.

Caprio returns to Yachting in the role he filled from 1992-2003, overseeing design, technology and new boat beats. He also was a project manager for Yachting's 100th anniversary issues, which appeared each month in 2007.

White will manage the production cycles for print and digital products while he continues to produce the Currents and Gear departments. He also will oversee the annual Yachting Registry and produce the magazine's Twitter feeds.

South, Caprio and White will be based in Bonnier Corp.'s Middletown, R.I., office.
