For second time in as many years, FB Marine Group, headquartered in Pompano Beach, Fla., has been named one of the Top 100 dealers in North America by Boating Industry, a leading marine industry trade publication. The news was announced in a press release from the Minneapolis-based publication.
Captured here with their son, Chase, Randy and Kim Sweers have guided FB Marine Group to its second Boating Industry magazine honor in the past two years.
“From the thousands of boat dealers in North America these 100 dealers are the best of the best,” said Jonathan Sweet, director of the Boating Industry Top 100 Program, in the release. “The Top 100 is about more than revenue. While the financial success of the companies on the list is important, we’re also looking at factors including overall business acumen, marketing strategies, service department efficiency and profitability, customer service and dedication to the industry. These Top 100 dealers stand out for their best practices in all areas of their businesses.”
“We’re truly honored to be included in Boating Industry’s Top 100 List once again” said Kim Sweers, managing partner of FB Marine Group. “We could not have accomplished all that we have without a talented team, committed to providing the best customer experience.”
The Top 100 is the only independent ranking of boat dealers in North America, according to the release. The list recognizes dealerships that are unsurpassed in business operations, professionalism, marketing tactics, customer service and more. The Boating Industry Top 100 has recognized the top dealers in North America every year since 2005.
“This year’s Top 100 is stronger than we’ve ever seen in the history of the program,” Sweet said.
According to the release, total revenue for the 2018 Top 100 dealers and Hall of Fame was at its highest level in the history of the program, topping $3.5 billion.
