Ray Fernandez, President of Bridge Marina, Gains Certified Marina Manager Status
Ray Fernandez, president of Bridge Marina on Lake Hopatcong, recently earned the marina industry’s highest professional recognition: Certified Marina Manager (CMM). The certification was presented to him at the International Marina and Boatyard Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Certified marina managers must complete an extensive training and certification process through the globally recognized International Marina Institute. They also embrace the continuance of education and training for themselves and those who work within the marina industry. Fernandez is the 389th marina professional to earn CMM status since the inception of the program in 2004.
Merrit Alves of the Association of Marina Industries noted that certified marina managers represent the elite in the marina and recreational boating industry. “We commend Ray for his dedication to achieving this status,” she said. “Certified marina managers like Ray value true personal and professional excellence and strive to maintain the highest levels of ethical and moral conduct in their commitment to the marina industry.”
Bridge Marina offers a variety of boating experiences on Lake Hopatcong, including new and pre-owned boat sales, a boating club, and luxury rentals. This year, the marina’s boating club and rentals will also be offered at Highlands at the Jersey shore. For more information, visit www.BridgeMarina.com.
