Andrew Doole and Dane Graziano were promoted to chief operating officers for Show Management, the producer of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

“Clearly, the combined efforts, experience and know-how of Andrew and Dane for over 24 years [each] have been key components to the great success and growth of this company,” said Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist III, president and CEO of Show Management, in a statement. “There is no doubt that their vision and strategic planning will take Show Management to greater heights and at the same time provide needed support for the marine industry.”

Doole and Graziano will oversee and manage all aspects of every show, including concessions, electrical, decorating services, government relations, sales and marketing, exhibitor relations, show expansion and industry relations. In addition to the boat shows, they are also involved in special events produced by Show Management.
