GCCM has appointed Andrew Chapman CMM to the role of Chief Operating Officer

Gold Coast City Marina & Shipyard (GCCM) has announced the appointment of Andrew Chapman to oversee the management and development of the Coomera award-winning facility.

Mr. Chapman will bring to GCCM his extensive background in marina and boatyard management allowing the facility to continue its growth trajectory with some exciting expansion plans in the pipeline.

“I have known Andrew for many years, both of us being on the board of the Marina Industries Association. Andrew has been involved in Marina planning, construction, and management since 1984 and will bring his considerable experience and innovative business plans to GCCM. Now that GCCM has been taken off the market, our objective is to build on our existing strengths, facilitate business for our tenants and provide the best refit/maintenance facility and service to our customers,” stated GCCM’s CEO, Mr. Trenton Gay.

Andrew is the President and Chairman of the Marina Industries Association having held this position for the last 12 years. The MIA is the peak Marina Industry body in Australia and is held in high esteem throughout the Asia Pacific region. Andrew is a founding member of the Australian Marine Industry Advisory Group set up to advise Governments Ministers and further the endeavours of its members.

“I see the opportunity to improve the customer experience at GCCM and make it easier for all our customers and contractors to do business on our extensive award-winning hardstand and marina,” explained Chapman. “GCCM is a great brand that I am proud to be associated with”.

“We are actively attracting more and more superyacht refit and maintenance projects to the yard now. In doing so, it is fundamental that our services and delivery are world-class, meeting the clients’ expectations and reflecting our standing in the global marketplace. Andrew will be critical in this,” offered Trent Gay.

Andrew is committed to the sustainable operation of marine and tourism businesses whilst acting as custodians of our waterways, having operated under ISO14001, Australian MIA Marinas, and Gold Anchor programs. He is determined to maintain GCCM’s leadership in sustainability and WHS initiatives. He truly believes in GCCM’s Closing the Loop on Waste Program which aims to maintain a circular economy within the facility.
