Caroline Mantel

Director of Business Development •

Caroline is a Florida native and has been a coastline resident her entire life, even while earning her degrees in Public Relations and Marketing from the University of Miami. She has worked as the Director of Business Development for for 6 years and wears many hats in the boating industry. For the past 2 and a half years, she has served on the VIRT Committee, most recently as Vice Chair. In addition to VIRT, she is also a member of ERAC. Her passion however, lies with UCOTVA and working to help create consistency between states in regards to boat titling, as well as the branding provision for vessels to ensure boats are not sold with undisclosed damage. Part of that also lies in educating the consumer on the risks associated with purchasing a damaged vessel. 

In her spare time she enjoys running, hiking, camping, fishing, and boating - obviously.
