Bill Yeargin, CEO of Orlando-based boatbuilder Correct Craft, was named 2016 CEO of the Year by the Orlando Business Journal.

The newspaper cited a 38 percent jump in sales in the last 12 months and nearly $350 million in sales anticipated this year.

In January the company completed an $8 million expansion of its east Orange County facility and hired 50 new employees.

Yeargin told the newspaper that first on his to-do list was “developing a business model to integrate and a new acquisition we are pursuing.”

“I have been invited to the White House four times, including an Oval Office meeting with President Barack Obama,” Yeargin said when asked something interesting about himself. “In August I was there to speak on a couple of issues that are important to business.”

Correct Craft’s 2015 revenue was listed at $300 million and the company employed 450.
