Jacksonville, Fla., Sept. 7, 2017 — Freedom Boat Club is pleased to announce Austin Hammond has been lined up to be  promoted to Director of Fleet Operations. Hammond currently  serves as Director of Dock operations for the St. Augustine Marina.

Hammond has been with the company for the past 5 years. He recently completed his service skills training program at the Yamaha Marine University in Kennesaw, Georgia. Following his completion, he was offered a great opportunity to oversee all of the maintenance, repairs and installations for the club, in the near future. When the fleet gets to 100 boats, the need for a second Director will be ready to be filled.

“My new skills and qualifications have provided me with a lot more opportunity. I feel confident in taking on this new position,” said Hammond. “The most important thing I learned while attending the program was follow procedure and do it right the first time.”

The transition is expected to take place in spring of next year. Until then Hammond will continue doing what he does best, putting his news skills to work in his current position. As for members of the club, he believes they are excited to see him transition into his new position.

“Members are happy and glad to see me in this position and think it is going to be good for the club operations.,” said Hammond.
