Mark Vickers has been promoted from membership executive to leadership post
Freedom Boat Club of Jacksonville and St. Augustine has promoted Mark Vickers to the new position of general manager for its three local boating clubs. Vickers was a member for five years before joining Freedom Boat Club as a membership executive in January 2020. He will manage the Julington Creek, Jacksonville Beach and St. Augustine locations.
Born and raised in Winnipeg, Canada, Vickers moved to Florida in 1998 and lives in Mandarin. He was the owner of the consulting company Speaking is Selling before semi-retiring. He joined Freedom as a member because he loved being on the water without owning a boat. When asked if he would like to join the team as a membership executive at Julington Creek, he came out of semi-retirement for the opportunity to work on the waters.
Vickers says his favorite thing about Freedom Boat Club is a toss-up between two boats in its fleet – a Rinker Q3 and a Key West 239.
Vicker’s promotion to general manager is part of a management restructure Freedom Boat Club is implementing as it continues growing its organization.
