Press Release: Luxury Yacht Specialists 26 North Yachts Hires Director of Administration Lisa Borkowski
Seasoned business professional Borkowski to enhance brokerage operations
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. – Fort Lauderdale-based luxury yacht brokerage firm 26 North Yachts recently announced the hiring of seasoned business professional Lisa Borkowski as Director of Administration. Borkowski will join a talented team of innovative, forward-driving individuals making big waves in the yachting industry.
“I’ve had the privilege of working with Lisa for a number of years in many capacities,” said Mike Carlson, co-owner / broker. “She’s been an extremely well-known and respected business owner in the marine industry, and I watched her successfully build her own operation. It’s a coup for 26 North Yachts to have Lisa’s caliber at work for us. ”
Borkowski, with her husband Lee, owned ASAP Marine Documentation & Registration, Inc. for over seven years before selling. Prior to ASAP, Borkowski enjoyed a successful career as a Certified Meeting Planner. Borkowski and her husband currently own the exclusive distributorship in Florida for the world’s first automatic touch screen cocktail bar (Bar Logistics).
“I look forward to bringing my experience as a successful business owner/operator to 26 North Yachts,” said Borkowski. “With my depth of experience in the industry, I’ll be able to offer extensive knowledge and expertise in listings, closings, administration, marketing and customer relationships in an international marketplace to further differentiate 26 North Yachts from competitors in the industry.”
Borkowski has more than a decade of experience in the marine industry, more than 10,000 closings behind her and contacts around the globe. From many years, she was a co-sponsor and featured educational seminar speaker on “Listing to Closing” at the annual Florida Yacht Brokers Association’s meeting. She was also featured in “Yachting 101: Tender & Toy Registration in the US” written by Kelly Sanford in Boat International USA (January 2008).
“I’m excited to be diving into the marine industry again and look forward to working closely again with fellow colleagues, maritime attorneys, documentation agencies and customs brokers from a different aspect of the industry,” said Borkowski. “Working with 26 North Yachts is a perfect fit. I share their same work ethic, level of professionalism, value of excellence and customer-centric philosophy. I can’t wait to come in and help build on their success!”
Married 21 years (they fortuitously met on a boat), Borkowski and her husband Lee are self-described “full-time RV-ers” and both passionate about the marine industry. When they aren’t working, they’re enjoying the great outdoors on their boat or ATV and playing with their adored Maltese Abygail.
