We have a woman in Seattle who is General Manager of a boatyard.
Patricia Segulja, General Manager of Dunato’s Boatyard, will be our presenter on Monday, April 20th. How boatyards work and how to deal most effectively with them are subjects boat owners may know less about than they should. Here’s your chance to ask questions and learn, and from a woman’s perspective.
Patti is the niece of the boatyard’s founder, John Dunato. It will be interesting to learn of all her work as a woman running a traditionally male work environment. She spearheaded the idea to start up the Second Wave, a new and used marine consignment store in Fremont, and oversaw operations for 14 years. Patti also worked in all phases of expanding their marina and is the marina manager. She is extremely involved in managing the environmental requirements for the boatyard including hazardous waste and storm water. Patti is on the board at the NMTA and is also on the Technical Advisory Committee at Seattle Central Community College. She dedicates a lot of time and energy to work force development for the marine industry.
Patti has three kids and is celebrating her 30th year with her husband. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from the University of Washington. She is heavily involved in the Snohomish Equine 4H program and enjoys horseback riding.
Tell your boat owning gal friends, come and enjoy the evening.
