A comment from Lisa:
I am extremely proud to now be recognised as a CMM. Having worked in Marinas for the last 18 years, it has always been a goal of mine to achieve such status. The knowledge I have gained in my various roles, in particular the recent years working for Shepperton Marina as well as the support and encouragement from the directors and fellow industry professionals, has been instrumental in getting to this point. I am passionate about the industry and look forward to taking Shepperton Marina to new heights in the coming years.
Well done Lisa!
