MarineMax Vacations promoted Bentley Hodge to base manager at the company’s charter base in Tortola, British Virgin Islands.

“We are excited to have Bentley move into this role and manage our base operations in the British Virgin Islands,” MarineMax Vacations vice president Raul Bermudez said in a statement. “Bentley’s extensive industry experience and his drive for excellence in customer service have paved the way for this well-deserved promotion. Most recently, Bentley served as our customer service manager and has been an asset to the base operations and the entire MarineMax Vacations team.”

“Bentley truly lives the MarineMax culture of giving each of our customers the one-on-one attention they deserve,” MarineMax Vacations president Lex Raas said in a statement. “Bentley will be instrumental in continuing to position MarineMax Vacations as the premier powerboat charter operator in the British Virgin Islands.”

Hodge, a Tortola native, started his career in the marine industry 17 years ago and has worked closely with suppliers and manufacturers such as Beneteau, Jeanneau, Robertson and Caine, and Raymarine. Most recently before joining MarineMax Vacations, Hodge was the customer service manager at Horizon Yacht Charters, where he implemented new base procedures companywide.
