CHUCK GRICE, President and Owner, grew up in Maryland and as a child, his parents inspired in him a lifelong love of boating. He graduated from Villanova University with a B.S. in Marketing, and started in the boating business in 1981. After being a sales manager for a Viking Yacht dealer in Annapolis, Maryland, and then a Viking-Hatteras dealer in Hampton, Virginia, he opened Virginia Yacht Brokers in 1989. Chuck feels new boat dealers who sell used boats simply cannot make the sale of their used boats a priority. All too concerned with day-to-day floorplan expenses, problems relating to service, and inventory obligations from the manufacturer, these dealers have no time or energy to effectively market brokerage boats. Virginia Yacht Brokers only sells brokerage boats. This is yacht brokerage done right! Chuck lives in Virginia Beach with his wife Kelsey. Their daughter McKenzie graduated from the University of Miami and now cruises on the Royal Caribbean cruise line performing live with the musical theatre and dance departments. Chuck's son Parker, a graduate of High Point University, who also works for Virginia Yacht Brokers, Inc. Chuck can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or on his cell phone at 757.287.6344.
KELSEY GRICE was born in Tokyo, Japan, went to elementary school in Djarkarta, Indonesia, high school in Madrid, Spain and has traveled throughout the world. Her undergraduate degree is from Sweet Briar College and she has attended graduate business programs at University of Pittsburgh, Wharton School of Business and MIT. Kelsey has a strong background in marketing, honed in international public relations, the United States Senate, and AT&T. She settled in Virginia Beach, as it is an exceptionally nice place to raise McKenzie, now 27, and Parker, now 25. She can be reached via email at email@example.com or on her cell at 757.639.5870.
BOB STARR grew up on the Jersey Shore and was introduced to boating at a young age. A graduate of the University of South Florida, Bob holds two masters degrees. As a career Naval officer, Bob served his last tour of duty at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. Upon retirement he relocated to Virginia, where he managed one of the largest marina resorts on the lower Chesapeake Bay. Bob's progression from a top-notch marina to a professional yacht brokerage firm was natural and is a perfect match. His knowledge of boating, combined with his low-key personality, makes him one of the finest brokers you will ever meet. Bob's congenial demeanor, attention to detail and genuine concern for his clients have led to his success. Bob lives in Virginia Beach with his wife Geri, their son Matt is a coastal scientist in Florida, and their daughter Brooke is a senior at Virginia Tech. He can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or on his cell phone at 757.714.1866.
