Marine trades groups hand out AMI scholarships

The Marine Trades Association of Maryland and the Rhode Island Marine Trades Association chose Eric Bradley, George Dunigan and Capt. Brandon Kidd to receive the Association of Marina Industries’ Neil Ross Scholarship awards.

Bradley started his career in the marine industry in his teens working as a deckhand for Chesapeake Marine Tours (now Watermark). After college he worked as dockmaster at Annapolis Landing Marina and was hired by the National Harbor Marina to develop its new marina client base. In 2012, he went to work for Jerome J. Parks Companies, managing their marina portfolio, which consists of Chesapeake Harbour Marina, Annapolis Maryland Capital Yacht Club and Orchard Beach Marinas.

Dunigan has been with Interlux for 12 years. His career in sales and management spans 25 years and has centered around the boating and skiing industries.

"George's understanding of the environmental impacts of boating has been a huge asset to the MTAM board of directors," MTAM executive director Susan Zellars said in a statement.

At 38, Kidd is the youngest RIMTA board member and has taken leadership roles on legislative work, work force development and marina issues.

“Locally raised, Brandon graduated from Tiverton High School, working nights and weekends at the family marina all through his childhood,” RIMTA executive director Wendy Mackie said. “His passion is the marine industry, and he shares that passion to support the industry in many ways.”
