The Global Marina Institute (GMI) is pleased to announce that Thailand-based Zara Tremlett has been awarded Certified Marina Management (CMM) status. Zara joins the ranks of five other Certified Managers in Asia and over 250 globally. Zara is the first female to receive this recognition in the Asia region.
Zara is the Marina Manager at Yacht Haven Marina. She has managed the 320-berth marina on the north east coast of Phuket since 2002. Prior to this she had a development and management role at Harbour Village Marina, Bonaire, in the Caribbean. Zara is also secretary of the Thai Marine Business Association and an advocate of environmental, educational and safety concerns.
Incoming GMI Chairman John Hogan CMP said he is very pleased the industry has another CMM in Asia. “As Asia continues to strengthen its boating infrastructure the corresponding development of skilled and experienced marina managers is very important. Zara has demonstrated excellent industry leadership in the region. Her CMM status will further assist the growth of the marine and marina industries across the region and encourage other women in the industry globally to confidently advance their professional development.”
