There’s a new face at the table for the City of Quinte West.
The municipality announced Kathy Lammers has been hired as the Manager of Marinas and Waterfront Facilities to replace outgoing manager Craig Carter.
Carter has agreed to stay on as Harbourmaster for the upcoming boating season to help with the transition.
Lammers says the Trent Port Marina is a beautiful facility with a great reputation and she’s looking forward to building on the success that has been achieved so far.
Lammers has extensive marine industry experience, most recently serving as Chairman of the Regatta Organizing Committee for Antigua Sailing Week and President of the Caribbean Sailing Association.
She’ll be responsible for the management of the 374-slip marina and fuelling station. Her duties will range from managing marina personnel and budgeting, to helping market the new facilities to increase tourism in Quinte West.
“I want to contribute to the marina reaching its fullest potential. It’s a beautiful place and a great asset to the community,” she says.
“We are looking forward to Kathy taking our marina to the next level while still providing boaters of all ages and types with the experience they have become accustomed to at the Trent Port Marina,” says Mayor Jim Harrison. “We look forward to seeing the marina flourish under Kathy’s guidance.”
