Jeremy Rose, general manager of White Bay 6 Marine Park, the home of Sydney Harbour Boat Storage, has announced he is moving to the US for business and personal reasons. Rose and his fiancé Anne Gravely, who is the compliance and HR officer for White Bay 6, have decided it is time to move Stateside where Gravely has family.
Rose said offers of senior positions in the marine industry overseas had made the decision to move easier. He said the culture and the relationships he had experienced in his time at White Bay 6 will be be invaluable as he continues his career.
“Both Anne and I were given an amazing opportunity here at White Bay 6, one that we are extremely appreciative of. We have been very fortunate to not only have the trust and unwavering backing of our directors and staff but very importantly the perpetual support of our valued customers,” he said.
During his time at White Bay 6, Rose has overseen a very successful period for the boatyard and storage facility with growing recognition for its services within the industry and among customers. At last year’s Club Marine Marina of the Year awards, the facility was named as ‘Best Boat Yard – Under 20 Boats’ and was also a finalist in the ‘Dry Stack Storage Facility’ category while its customer service manager, Ludovica ‘Elle’ Perna, was a finalist in the ‘Marina Employee of the Year’ award.
The facility also recently achieved level 3 Clean Marina accreditation with the Marina Industries Association.
“There is a very capable and approachable management team in place to drive the business into the future, and Anne and I wish them the best of success,” said Rose.
Baileys Group, owners of White Bay 6 Marine Park and Sydney Harbour Boat Storage, gave the departing pair its best wishes and said it will continue to support customers with Lorraine Yates as business manager and Andrew Cruikshank as marine service manager.
