President and Owner Brett Harris brings with him more than 10 years of financial and technology startup experience in various industries, most recently he worked in Santa Monica, CA for TrueCar.com in the online automotive space where he was an early employee on the finance and strategy team which ultimately was successful in taking the company public in May 2014. He is excited to put his technology background and experience to work in a new industry and continue to build upon the great foundation which was built by the Company’s former owner and founder Roy Edwards.
Brett has a passion for boating and is excited to be back in Florida — the boating capital of the U.S. He and his wife Johanna recently relocated from Santa Monica, CA to Clearwater, FL (where Brett spent most of his childhood and attended Countryside High School). He later matriculated at Boston College Carroll School of Management, and he received a bachelor’s degree with majors in Finance, Accounting and Economics. “With the solid foundation built by Roy Edwards, I look forward to taking EYS to its next level of growth and service to our clients,” said Brett. “My primary goal is for EYS to continue to provide outstanding service and added value to our clients who are either buying or selling a vessel.”
In response, Roy Edwards stated: “I am excited to be passing the torch to Brett and am confident that EYS will grow to new heights under his leadership. Brett brings a new perspective to this industry and his diverse experience will benefit EYS, its employees and clients. I look forward to supporting Brett and ensuring a continued trajectory of growth under his leadership.”
