At the August Marina Industries Association (MIA) Board meeting two new directors were appointed to the Board. The new Board members are Suzanne Davies, General Manager at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club (RPAYC) and Kenny Kang (Seuk-Ju, Kang), Chief Executive Officer of CKIPM Marine Group Co Ltd.

MIA Chairman Andrew Chapman said the addition of the two new directors was a boast to the Boards capacity to achieve its strategic aims particularly in the areas of industry education and training and the growing Asian market place. 'Suzanne Davies has a background in hospitality, sales and training as well as her GM role at RPAYC for the past six years. We are very privileged to have Suzanne join the Board. Kenny Kang brings a strong knowledge of the Asian market and in particular his home market of Korea. His company has become a leader in waterfront developments in the region and he is a passionate advocate of quality marina development'.

After her first MIA Board meeting Suzanne Davies said she was very pleased to join a dynamic Board with a focus on the sustainable development of the marina sector. 'I look forward to assisting with MIA’s capacity to add value to the marina industries and to deliver tangible benefits to its members'.

Kenny Kang said he found his first Board meeting very enlightening and he was honored to be the first MIA director from outside of Australia. 'MIA is widely respected across Asia as the lead marina industries association. I look forward to assisting MIA in building relationships and cooperation with the Asian marina industries'.
