Together with his brother Philippe, Jean-Pierre developed Poralu’s ‘pontoons’ division in the 1980s and over 30 years of entrepreneurial initiatives and adventures followed. Léa Carminati, his niece, joined the company a few years ago and, alongside company president Laurent Gasiglia, strives to carry on his legacy within Poralu Marine. Jean-Pierre was also committed to helping his community and served as mayor of Nantua in 2008. His loss leaves a great void and all 150 Poralu employees feel deep sadness. Our sincere sympathy goes out to the Carminati family. New CEO at MIA Suzanne Davies (below right) is to become CEO of the Australia-based Marina Industries Association (MIA) on 1st October. She takes over from Colin Bransgrove who has headed up the association for 13 years. MIA chairman Andrew Chapman (below left) said he and the MIA board were delighted to welcome her. “Suzanne has all the attributes we could wish for in a CEO. Additionally, she has an intimate understanding of the MIA and the needs of our members that comes with being an active MIA member and MIA director since 2012.” Davies’s most recent position was as CEO of d’Albora Marinas and previously as general manager of Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club in Sydney for 12 years. Prior to that she held a range of senior positions, particularly in sales and marketing in the hotel accommodation sector. She is a current director of Australian Sailing.
