An active member of the Charter Yacht Brokers Association International Inc (CYBA) since 1997, June Montagne from the Ocean Independence Fort Lauderdale office has been voted in as President for 2021 to 2022 by the membership.
Part of the CYBA board of directors in various roles since the early 2000s, Montagne prides herself on introducing a fresh approach to continually promote knowledge, competence, and mindfulness within the yachting industry. Previously appointed President for the 2011 to 2012 term, she was co-chair in writing, developing, and launching the successful 'New Broker Online Seminar', that has become a staple charter industry asset.
Serving to clarify industry sector involvement specifically for new retail charter brokers, assistants and colleagues, it will also be instrumental in the near future in further accreditation for future charter brokers. Montagne also played a significant role in the development of the CYBA Hall of Fame, recognising worthy yachting professionals worldwide on an annual basis at the Antigua Yacht Show.
Montagne has acted as vice president at CYBA during both 2015 to 2016 and the past two years. This has been a challenging time for the board of directors, who have been very active in their support of the membership during the repercussions of hurricane destruction and, most recently, the ongoing pandemic.
