The founder and CEO, Mitch Nathanson, has a history with marinas that dates to the 1970's, when he gave up a career as a Washington, D.C.-based architect to buy and renovate White Rocks Marina in Pasadena, Maryland. Five years later he sold the refurbished facility for twice his original purchase price, and thus began his successful career as a leading manager, consultant, and redeveloper of marinas.
