The Charlotte-area Sea Tow business that covers Lake Norman and Lake Wylie has a new owner.

Sea Tow Services Intl. said Capt. John Ward brings to the business more than 12 years of experience as a captain. Ward also runs Sea Tow operations in Destin and Pensacola, Fla.

On Lake Norman and Lake Wylie he will lead a team that includes several other Sea Tow captains, utilizing seven Sea Tow boats. Ward also will provide on-the-water services to Sea Tow members on Mountain Island Lake.

“We’re delighted that Captain John is the new owner of the Sea Tow Lake Norman/Lake Wylie,” Capt. Joe Frohnhoefer III, Sea Tow’s chief executive officer, said in a statement.

“His experience, expertise and dedication to serving others ensures that Sea Tow members and other boaters in the area will receive the highest level of professional service, should they need assistance on the water.”

Sea Tow said Ward purchased his first Sea Tow franchise in Pensacola in 2004. He received the company’s 2009 Franchise of the Year award and placed first in the nation for membership growth that year and in 2013.
