The Global Marina Institute announced that Hong Kong-based Goh Thye Hock has been awarded Certified Marina Professional status.

Hock joins two other Certified Marina Professionals in Asia, and is the first to receive this recognition in the Hong Kong region.

Hock has been in senior positions across the marina industries in Asia for over 10 years including Taiwanese marina development; superyacht charter in China and sailing and marina management in Singapore.

He attended the GMI Intermediate and Advance Marina Management courses held in Australia in 2006 and 2009 respectively.

MIA executive officer and GMI director Colin Bransgrove presented the certification to Goh Thye during the recent meeting of the Marina Industries Association held at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club.

“Clearly Goh Thye has built a very good skills base across the marina industries and he is committed to continuing professional development as required by the certification,” said GMI chairman John Hogan in a statement.

In receiving the certification, Goh Thye thanked the MIA for actively supporting his career development.

“I look forward to being an active CMP and being connected to marina managers and professionals as part of the global network,” he said.
