Home Port Marine Marketing, the global marine products development, publicity and promotion consultancy, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month.

“While the past few years have been challenging for everyone in our industry, Home Port supports more marine products suppliers worldwide today than before the downturn began, and I think that's simply people recognizing that our services are very effective and economical,” company president Jim Georgiadis said in a statement.

The consultancy, based in Kilmarnock, Va., was founded in 2001 by Georgiadis and David Pilvelait, former product merchandising and marketing executives with BoatUS.
