TITUSVILLE MARINA GENERAL MANAGER
Tom Lawson joined the F3Marina Team as the General Manager of the Titusville Marina in September 2015 with 15 years of marina management experience both in the private and public sectors. Mr. Lawson is a Certified Marina Manager through the Association of Marine Industries; he also boasts an extensive background in management, budgeting & procurement, strategic planning, and facilities maintenance. Before joining F3Marina, Tom enjoyed successful careers with the United States Air Force, West End Land & Golf Course Development, Lakeside Yacht Club, and Whiskey Island Marina. Tom began his career in the marina business as a dockhand at Lakeside Yacht Club on Lake Erie in Cleveland, Ohio in 2003. He worked his way up through the ranks to the position of Harbormaster. He left the yacht club to take on the challenge of a county-owned property with over 60 acres. At Whiskey Island Marina, Tom led the recovery and rebuilding operation necessary after the marina was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012. Working directly with the Federal Emergency Management Administration, he obtained multiple quotes to meet government procurement requirements; negotiated contracts and insurance claims; served as general contractor to oversee permitting, delivery, and installation of new docks and utilities; managed expectations during construction; and successfully completed the project in time for the opening of the 2013 season, under budget and in compliance with FEMA regulations. Since taking over the Titusville Marina Tom has increased the occupancy rate from 49% to 100% during its busy season, maintaining at least 90% during the offseason. He has increased the revenue from a six-figure loss to a six-figure profit in just two years, successfully decreasing the marina’s debt and increasing its value.
