MarineMax announced today that Charles R. Oglesby was appointed to its board of directors.

John Furman, who has served since 2003, resigned from the board.

Oglesby was president and chief executive officer of Asbury Automotive Group until February 2011 and executive chairman until July. Oglesby joined Asbury in 2002 as president of North Point Automotive Group in Little Rock, Ark., and in 2004 assumed the additional responsibility of Nalley Automotive Group.

Prior to joining North Point, he was president of San Francisco-based First America Automotive, a 36-dealership group. Asbury is one of the largest automobile retailers in the country.

“We are proud and honored to have Charles Oglesby join our board of directors. … We are certain that he will be a strong addition to the board, based on his wealth of experience and expertise in growing a business model with strong similarities to MarineMax,” MarineMax chairman, president and chief executive William H. McGill Jr. said in a statement.

Madeline Mancini was named charter assistant at Northrop & Johnson in Fort Lauderdale.

Mancini, who will perform support functions for the company’s charter division, returns to the yachting industry after a seven-year hiatus to start a family. Her yachting career started in her 30s when she became a yacht stewardess on the 126-foot Feadship, The Lady Allison, heading to the Mediterranean for the summer.

She later worked as a freelance stewardess on mainly 100- to 130-foot range yachts. While freelancing, her travels included the Bahamas, New England, the U.S. East Coast, the Gulf of Mexico and the Great Lakes.
