Hi-Tide Boat Lifts Announces New President

Carlos Quinones

Ft. Pierce company names former vice president of operations Carlos Quinones new president

FT. PIERCE, Fla. (Jan. 5, 2015) — Hi-Tide Boat Lifts, a leader in the boat lift
manufacturing industry, has named former Vice President of Operations Carlos Quinones as its new company president.

In his new role at Hi-Tide Boat Lifts, Quinones will oversee all departments in the company, such as sales and marketing, vendor relations and purchasing. Additionally, Quinones will provide strategic insight and direction for operations in each department.

Quinones was hired by Hi-Tide Boat Lifts founder Don Wood as an outside sales representative in 2007. The following year, Quinones came on board as an office manager before being promoted to general manager in 2009. Quinones was promoted to vice president of operations in 2010, and since then has been overseeing the day-to-day operations of the company.

“Carlos’ commitment to the entire Hi-Tide family has been apparent from the moment we brought him on board seven years ago,” said Craig Wood, owner of HiTide Boat Lifts. “I could not have asked for a better team leader to take on the role of company president.”

Quinones’ promotion was prompted by Wood’s desire to step back from the daily management of his company in order to focus on corporate initiatives; particularly, Hi-Tide Boat Lifts’ ‘Kids on Track’ program, which seeks to ‘lift the spirits’ of children throughout the country by providing them with unique access to Indy Car racing events in the Mazda Road to Indy series. The 2016 ‘Kids on Track’ program kicks-off in St. Petersburg, Fla. in March.

Hi-Tide Boat Lifts plans to fill Quinones’ previous role with a new vice president of operations later in the year.

Introducing Hi-Tide’s New President: Carlos Quinones

New President

Way back in 2007, Carlos Quinones, first worked with Hi-Tide after being hired by our Founder, Don Wood, as an outside sales representative and hasn’t looked back since.

The following year, Carlos became part of the Hi-Tide family proper, coming on as office manager before being promoted to general manager in 2009 and then vice president in 2010. Through the years, he’s always been a shining example of what Hi-Tide stands for: namely, leadership, hard work and a drive to always provide our customers with the highest level of expertise and care.

Carlos has a real passion for helping people hit the water to enjoy this pastime that we all know and love: boating. Through his work, he’s proven more than capable of taking on the role of new president of Hi-Tide Boat Lifts, which we announce with a mix of pride and excitement for the future. As president, Carlos will oversee all departments, including sales and marketing, vendor relations, and purchasing.

Due to this promotion, Craig Wood is now free to focus his efforts into another passion of his: providing children throughout the U.S. with unique access and exposure to IndyCar racing events in the Mazda Road to Indy series through the “Kids on Track” program. If that’s not a win/win, we don’t know what is.

We’re happy to welcome our new President, Carlos Quinones, as he enjoys many more years of success with Hi-Tide!
