Prior to joining Kadey-Krogen, Morey was director of service and product training for Grand Banks Yachts. “I look forward to helping our clients build the boat of their dreams,” he said.

“Having had the opportunity to work with Fran for 10 years in the past made the decision to have him join the team a pretty easy one,” said Tucker West, vice president of sales.

Ford Bauer, a Rhode Island native and experienced boater, joins Kadey-Krogen as marketing coordinator. Ford’s experience includes digital marketing, analytics, SEO and social media management.
