Election of Rebecca White


On May 23, 2018, the Company’s Board of Directors elected Rebecca White to its Board of Directors and appointed Ms. White to serve on the Board’s Compensation Committee and Nominating Committee effective immediately as of such date. Ms. White currently serves as Walter Chair of Entrepreneurship, Professor of Entrepreneurship and Director of the John P. Lowth Entrepreneurship Center at the University of Tampa and has been teaching at the University of Tampa since 2009. Prior to the University of Tampa, Ms. White taught at Northern Kentucky University from 1994 to 2009 and built a top 25 nationally ranked entrepreneurship program. She received an MBA and a Ph.D. from Virginia Polytech Institute and State University. Her primary research and teaching interests are in opportunity recognition and developing an entrepreneurial mindset. She has served on a number of company, non-profit and industry association boards over the past 15 years and is an active member of the National Association of Corporate Directors. Ms. White has more than 25 years of experience in education, training, coaching and mentoring.

William H. McGill, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “We are very excited and honored to have Rebecca join our Board of Directors.  We are confident that she will be a strong addition to our Board.  Her mentoring model and experience helping business leaders achieve their strategic goals will complement our ongoing efforts to profitably grow MarineMax.  On behalf of the Board, we welcome Rebecca and look forward to her future contributions to the Company.”

There is no arrangement or understanding pursuant to which Ms. White was selected as a director. There are no related party transactions between the Company and Ms. White that are reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. The compensation of Ms. White will be consistent with that provided to all non-employee directors, as described in our most recent proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 28, 2017.
